At the Biltmore
Wonderful opportunity through GolfNow to play this course, something we would not ordinarily have done. We were well received by the staff and the course was in great condition. Because of the timing, we had the course to ourselves for most of the round. A wonderful experience

Classic design, still a great course
I've played the Biltmore about 20 times over the last year - it's my home course since I've moved to Miami. Always have a great time playing here. It's a classic design, so you'll see more people walking this course than pretty much any course in Miami. Everything is pretty much right out in front of you. No gimmicks or tricks.
Very diverse clientele here - members, South FL residents (who also get a discount), as well as hotel guests from around the world. The course also hosts college and amateur tournaments annually as well as the Jr Orange Bowl Classic in December that attracts some of the best junior golfers in the world. Needless to say it has a great resume.
Course is always in good condition - not great, but good. Certainly worth paying up to $100 (resident rates usually don't exceed that). Course is mostly Bermuda grass which is in great shape generally, but there's also a lot of St Augustine grass around which is really tough to play from - but if you've hit it in that stuff you deserve to be penalized.
Depending on the day, you can also fly around the golf course. I played in a two some today and played in about 3 hours flat. That said, busy days on the weekend in the afternoon can run 4:15 to 4:30. But I've never had a round last longer than that.
I love the layout of the course as well. Favorite holes are probably #1, #17 and 18. Course starts and finishes with short reachable par 5s, but they aren't gimme holes if you hit it in the wrong spot. #17 is a long par 4 over water to a tricky green. Toughest hole on the course.
The Biltmore is definitely worth a try if you're golfing in South Florida. There's so much history there, and the vistas with the hotel in the background are unbeatable. $200+ might be a little too much to pay but even if you do pay that much you'll enjoy your round!

Played with the Wife and we had a great afternoon. We will come back after the rates go down as the rates are high at this time. The course was in good shape and the greens are very fast.

Resort course - Average condition. Not worth the money.
Beautiful layout and club house. Friendly staff on course. The condition was average. You can play a similar course for half the price else where. Good pace of play. Smooth greens. Lots of water hazards. Better value and course at Jacaranda.

Good course for Golf Now "Hot Deal"
Played with a couple of nice guys and had a great day. Arrogant
guy behind us (probably a member) complained by our pace of play (we finished in under 4 hours after letting his threesome play through on the 17th tee) We never had them up our backs, but because of the heat that day, as he stated, we should pick up our pace (16th hole) so he could finish. Other than that, overall great day. Drink lots of water. Thanks GolfNow

Step Back in Time
I love Donald Ross' philosophy of course design and this is a fine specimen of a 1925 gem of his. It lacks the inverted spoon shaped greens of Pineherst #2, but they were small, fast and tricky. Overall the course condition was above average. Once again a GolfNow Hotdeal made the day because I only paid $105 versus the $250 greens fee for non-resort guest. Vista's of the hotel are everywhere, and its a grand building worth a few minutes to check out.
