General Comments:

Just returned from a trip to the Biltmore Hotel in Phoenix. One of my favorite hotels in the country. Frank Lloyd Wright design. Totally unique. Very dramatic views of Camelback. Just a great place to stay.
Two golf courses: the Adobe course, established in 1928 by William Bell for the Wrigley family. Historic, but in my opinion pretty boring. 6428 yards from the tips feels like 6000 yards tops. Wide open with back and forth fairways.
The other course, The Links, built in 1979, is by far the more interesting track.
6300 from the tips with a 69.5 rating and a 125 slope. The slope plays higher on the back nine for sure. Has water in play, nice conditions all around. The last 4 finishing holes are really terrific and fun to play, especially 16, a 183 yd par 3 from an elevated tee straight down over desert brush to a light bulb shaped green, 17, a 451 yd. par 4 and 18, a 521 yd. par 5. Elevated tees, with the wind straight in your face makes it a lot of fun with some nice challenge. Only 62 bucks with the cart after 2PM which is nice since you can play until late in the day when it cools down a little. Not the greatest courses in the Phoenix area, but when combined with the hotel stay a fine time will be had by all.
