The Adobe Course is a traditional style par 71, 6,430 yard course that is a true parkland golf course. The course treats golfers with generous, sprawling fairways, while challenging them with numerous bunkers and water hazards.
Reviews of the course have been inconsistent. Some golfers will say you can't beat the course quality while others say it is very slow. What is consistent is the service is top notch, the fairways are wide, and the price is right. There plenty of challenges for someone with a high handicap.
The par 71, 6,300 yard Links Course is the younger of the two golf courses at the Arizona Biltmore Golf Club. The course has desert ravines, rolling fairways and five shimmering lakes. The Links course goes around the Biltmore homes and gives players a better challenge with elevated tees. The best time to play is later in the day as th ecourse plays slow.
The front 9 holes of the Links course is very flat, while the back 9 landscape meanders through rolling hills and provides amazing scenery of the Camelback Mountains and various nearby landmarks.
