One of the most popular outdoor activities in the Coral Gables is the Biltmore Golf Course. Perfect for pro-golfers or beginners, this golf course has an 18-hole layout with 419 Bermuda grass fairways. It is considered one of the best-restored golf courses in Coral Gables. It has a length of 7112 yards with a 74.3 USGA rating and the highest 132 slope score. At the same time, the golf course is well-known as the home of local golf competitions. The course was designed by Donald Ross, Mark Mahannah Sr., and Brian Silva.
Unknown by many, Biltmore shares history with other nearby golf courses, the 9-hole Granada Golf Course and the 18-hole Riviera Golf Course. While the developers' initial plan was to have two 9-hole and three 18-hole Courses in Coral Gables, regrettably these plans never eventuated. The Biltmore is now only a five-minute drive from the Riviera; and one mile away from the Granada. Aside from other golf courses, the golf resort is also perfectly placed near malls, residences, bars, etc.
