The Valley’s newest golf course, the Estates Course is in the final stages of grow-in and will open for daily-fee and member play in early November, according to an Arizona Biltmore Golf Club press release.
Named after the Biltmore neighborhood that surrounds the property, the Estates Course sits on the same footprint as the club’s former Adobe Course. Designed by the Lehman Design Group and Scottsdale resident and five-time PGA Tour champion Tom Lehman, the completely new Estates Course features recontoured fairways, new tee boxes and green complexes, as well as new sand and grass bunkers throughout.
“This project began as a renovation of the 95-year-old Adobe Course. As we moved through design and into construction, it became clear this would be a completely new golf course with more length, variety and challenge for golfers,” Jerry Colangelo of Phoenix-based JDM Partners, owners of the Arizona Biltmore Golf Club, shared in a press release.
In planning for the project, JDM Partners sought to make the refreshed golf course more sustainable, choosing to plant a new drought-tolerant TifTuf bermudagrass throughout the golf course and installing a new irrigation system. During the six-month redesign project, crews have also planted more than 400 new trees to add more visual appeal while helping define fairways and playing corridors.
The multi-million-dollar Estates Course project is phase two of a three phase reimagining of the Arizona Biltmore Golf Club.
Work on phase three is underway as construction crews are building a new 19,400-square foot clubhouse and restaurant to replace the existing Adobe Restaurant and event tent, while also adding additional on-site parking and making landscape improvements. The new clubhouse and restaurant will open in 2024.
