The Biltmore, recently named as one of the best resorts in Florida by Golf Digest, is offering a Stay & Play package with golf and breakfast starting at $369.

The Biltmore Hotel’s extraordinary golf course continues to set the renowned property apart from its competition, recently named one of “2021 Best Golf Resorts in Florida” by Golf Digest.

Initially designed by none other than legendary course designer Donald Ross, the 18-hole championship golf course is one of only nine Ross courses that are top 100 in the country.

The hotel, located in Coral Gables, is revered for its historic buildings and lavish accommodations. Guest can always take pleasure in the Biltmore’s world-class amenities including a European Spa, iconic swimming options, fine dining, private poolside cabanas, and a newly renovated, prestigious golf course.

“We’re privileged to have been named by Golf Digest and its readers with this prestigious honor,” said Lara Pavloff, Director of the Biltmore Hotel. “To be regarded as the top golf resort is a testament to the quality we deliver to our discerning guests and golfers daily.”

The award comes in no small part due to some incredible new renovations led by veteran golf course architect Brian Silva. Silva considered the intended “movement” of Ross’s course when he re-grassed the greens with Tif-Eagle Bermuda grass, enhanced the 419 fairways, and kept 84 of the original bunkers. The restoration also added more than 7,100 yards to the course, making it more ideal for the championship-level play that it has become accustomed to over the years.

Silva restored the course to its original 1925 dimensions, and he gave modern golfers a taste of what Ross had in mind for his courses long ago. Over the following years and decades, the original Ross design and the Silva restorations will prove to be a magnet for golf’s biggest names and most coveted awards, as well.
