Why is there not a tee time available on the course I want?

At the Arizona Biltmore Golf Club, many days are quite busy on our golf courses, so we recommend you reserve your tee time as far in advance as possible. Your tee time request may not be available due to a group golf event reserved that day or because of routine course maintenance needed to keep the Adobe and Links courses in excellent condition.

Do I need a tee time or can I just walk up?

We do our best to accommodate walk-up golfers. Even on the busiest of days, occasionally a golfer doesn’t show up for a tee time.
