Florida Golf Course Review
The Donald Ross designed championship course on property at the Biltmore Coral Gables Miami Resort is a par 71 6742 yard layout that has played host
to many legendary figures in its long history, and has benefited from recent renovations that have improved its challenge and playability. The course is a
centerpiece of the first class Biltmore Coral Gables/Miami Resort which features a variety of upscale accommodations, the largest resort swimming pool in
the country, plus a fitness center has been ranked by Men's Fitness Magazine as one of the top 10 hotel fitness facilities in the nation. For more

The recently renovated golf course is perfect for this resort setting, affording layers of all skill levels with an opportunity to enjoy and fair yet challenging
experience. The are 64 soft sand bunkers plus 6 holes with water features in play, providing enough obstacles to keep golfers on their toes. The tree lined
fairways are mildly rolling and present plentiful landing zones off the tee. Mildly undulating and raised green complexes are generally well protected by
bunkers, with slopes and mounding also making players work to get it up and down.
The layout winds through the resort community, and features numerous sanctuaries for giant iguanas. The ninth tee box is a staple for viewing these large
lizards, which do not seem to be afraid of humans. I counted 23 iguanas on this tee box on one sunny morning.
This also is one of the most interesting holes on the course, with ponds situated on either side of the fairway that lead to a green featuring a beautiful shot
of the resort as a back drop. Golfers will appreciate the Uplink GPS that is standard on all carts (cart covers are also standard), and 100, 150 and 200
yard marker are also posted on all par fours and fives. Small flags on the greens indicate front, middle or back pin locations.
This course features 5 sets of tee boxes that play to distances and slopes measuring 6742 yards/126 slope, 6303 yards/124 slope, 6031 yards/120 slope
for men and 131 for women, 5519 yards/116 slope for men and 121 for women, and 5189 with a slope of 119 for ladies hitting from the forward tees. For
