A golf-course legend given a new lease of life
Blending both Venetian and Iberian architectural influences, the Biltmore, dating back to 1929, has an illustrious history rich in Old World charm and poise.
Set on an 18-hole, 71-par championship course, the design of legendary golf-course architect Donald Ross, a magnificent recent makeover has extended the course by 7,100 yards to make it on a par with the best PGA Championship courses on earth.
Laid with Bermuda grass, new bunkers and redesigned fairways and greens, the Biltmore Golf Course has played host to legends including Tiger Woods, Alexis Thompson, Ricky Fowler and Sergio Garcia.
Now, even if you’re not yet au fait with your nine iron or your pitching wedge, you can still tee off on this hallowed turf thanks to the new Jim McLean Golf School. Offering a huge variety of golf-instruction experiences, including junior programmes, private lessons and multiday golf schools, this is the ideal location where sun and swing combine in effortless style.
