The Biltmore Hotel launches “Hole-in-one” golf package
We love this classic Donald Ross course
Words: John Dean
The Biltmore Hotel is a historic landmark located in the heart of Coral Gables. It’s now inviting visitors to tee off “where golf legends have played” with the launch of its “Hole-In-One” golf package.
Available all year long, the “Hole-In-One” package includes one round of golf on the renowned 18-hole Donald Ross Classic golf course and provides access to unlimited range balls, bag storage and use of the practice facility.
We love the Biltmore. It’s an absolute classic. We played it way back in 2005, but remember chilling out on the terrace after our round sitting next to Jed Bush, who was then the Governor of Florida. He had a heavy mob with him, so we left him to his own devices.
Designed by Donald Ross, the Biltmore golf course also has The Golf Channel Academy, operated by Justin Bruton.
The Biltmore has recently undergone a $5 million renovation, which included the implementation of Tifdwarf Bermuda grass surfaces, and restoration of the bunkers to their original designs.
We just remember the very tight greens, which are a Donald Ross trademark: tricky, tricky, tricky.
