Golf Course & Facilities Restoration Project
The Biltmore Hotel is pleased to announce that its famed 18-hole, 71-par golf course is in the process of being restored to its original grandeur of the 1925 Donald Ross-designed layout. Overseen by veteran golf course architect Brian Silva, this restoration will add new Bermuda grass on the existing tees, fairways and greens, incorporate new bunkers, enhance both the short-game practice area as well as the range area (including an expansion of the newly-established Jim McLean Golf School “Super Station”), establish a challenging signature hole, and extend the overall course length to over 7,100 yards making it worthy of championship level play.
The golf course restoration project is anticipated to be completed by December-2018; during which time the course and its grounds are closed for regular play. However, the Biltmore Golf Pro-Shop, the Jim-McLean Golf School, and the 19th-Hole Restaurant will remain open and uninterrupted during the restoration project.
