The Biltmore Golf Course is an 18-hole, 71-par championship course, designed in 1925 by legendary golf course architect Donald Ross. Early in its storied history, The Biltmore Golf Course was host to The Miami – Biltmore Open, one of the richest prize purse professional golf tournaments of its time.
On December 15th 2018, the Biltmore golf course re-opened after a massive multi-million-dollar hotel restoration project, which included the golf course. The Biltmore Golf Course’s tees, fairways, bunkers and greens were restored to the original 1925 Donald Ross design characteristics including eighty-four of the original eighty-five sand bunkers. This resulted in the original “movement” to the fairways being restored, as the re-grassed 419 Bermuda grass fairway corridors now weave around the fairway bunkers. The back tee yardage was increased to 7112 yards and all tees were laser leveled and re-grassed with 419 Bermuda. The USGA spec. greens were restored to their original sizes and re-grassed with Tif-Eagle Bermuda grass.
Since 1964, The Biltmore Golf Course has been the annual host site to the Junior Orange Bowl International Golf Championship. Past champions that launched their professional careers from the Junior Orange Bowl include: Jim Simon, Gary Koch, Mark Calcavecchia, Tiger Woods, Camilo Villegas, Michelle McGann, Vicki Goetz, Grace Park, Christie Kerr, Alexis Thompson, Ricky Fowler and Sergio Garcia.
