Belleview Biltmore Golf Club

Designed by world-famous golf course architect Donald Ross, the Belleview Biltmore Golf Club has been an American favorite since 1925. Extensively restored to a classic Ross design in 2002, the course has a reputation for its challenging design which harmonizes beautifully with the surrounding environment. Belleview Biltmore’s 18-hole championship 71-par course offers players of every skill level a challenging and memorable play.

Unusual for most Tampa Bay area courses, nature, not houses, dominates the field of play at the Biltmore. Crowned pedestal greens, a Ross trademark, invite run-up shots but tend to shed careless approaches, while well-placed fairway bunkers snare errant drives. The course looks fairly benign on the scorecard – 6,614 yards, par 71 – but four of the par fours exceed440 yards from the tips.

Large water oaks and pines narrow a few fairways, and water comes into play at seven holes. But the biggest deterrent to low scoring is the wind. In common with a links, much of the course is relatively flat and exposed to onshore Gulf breezes.

The Belleview Biltmore Golf Club is a semiprivate facility and welcomes daily fee play. The spacious Belleview Biltmore clubhouse, located just a mile south of the resort, emulates the same architectural flair as the resort, with green gabled roof and regal setting. The clubhouse offers complete locker room facilities, a fully stocked pro shop with the latest in apparel and equipment, and a relaxing Clubhouse Grill serving breakfast and lunch daily. Specializing in corporate outings and charity events, the Biltmore’s professional staff will make any function, large or small, a complete success.
