Arizona Biltmore Golf & Country Club
First and fast time at the Biltmore
Played a tournament with a group of friends. Managed horribly by the staff. Course was in poor shape, although this is typical in June in Arizona. Everyone seems to be punching greens now.

Always a favorite
Absolutely love the scenery on this course. Took two hours and ten minutes to play 18 as a single. Cheap rates and fast play in the summer make this my favorite course.

i paired up with another local player. The course was wide open in this triple digit heat. Adobe is fairly wide open with no desert cactus in the way, so you can easily find your golf ball. The local player was very friendly and he pointed out where to aim and avoid. We finished front 9 in about an hour and 15 minutes. I dropped one of my head covers back there, but I was not going back to look for it in this heat. We didn't see anyone in front nor behind us til no.16 hole. We finished 18 holes in less than 3 hours. That was awesome in this heat.
I went in and informed the assistant manager, Mitch, about my head cover. He was very polite and quickly informed his staffs to check with the later groups.
US Open was on TV, so I stay and watch it while waited. I overheard one player called and was having a hard time finding yardage marker, so Mitch offered to lend him a rangefinder, then he had one of his staff brought it to the guy. Wha a thoughtful young man. That showed Biltmore's superb customer service and well run management.
Sure enough, someone from the next group found it and the staff brought it over to me.

Great views but bad greens
The greens were newly aerated so they were very bumpy and we didn't know prior to playing. The course and views were great though!

Short, Easy & Fun
Links Course: It's a nice course to play. Remember to pay for range balls in the golf shop prior to driving over to the range. Additionally, the greens were just punched and sanded recently, so they are rough to putt on right now. Good course for beginner and intermediate players.

Old, classic track
Not a lot of frills. Just basic, traditional, straight fairways type golf. In very good condition and enjoyed the day. I was paired up with a delightful retired gal. We had our own carts and we flew thru the course in 3 hours. Didn't mean to play so fast but there wasn't any trouble to get into. The most difficult part was the dirt bunkers. Not sand, fluffy dirt and I've never played out of that type of stuff before. It took some getting used to so I made a point to really try to avoid them. Got a great price on Golf Now. It's now off my bucket list but I would go back if the price was right.
