Known as a bucket list golf destination, the world-renowned Trump National Doral Miami is a golfer's haven. First opening its doors in 1962, Doral was fashioned with golf at its core. And today, more so than ever, guests will find that it is one of the pre-eminent luxury golf resorts in Florida.
This Doral golf resort is home to four uniquely designed courses, including one of golf's iconic Blue Monster Course. With the most recent course transformations of The Red Tiger, The Golden Palm and The Silver Fox, Trump National Doral Miami sets itself apart from all others by offering distinct and exciting Doral golf experiences all at one property.
The Blue Monster
With legendary architect Gil Hanse at the helm, the historic Blue Monster Course has undergone a complete redesign and has become a new golf course thus reaffirming its reputation as one of the most challenging and spectacular golf courses in existence.
Already renowned the world over and rich with history, The Blue Monster at Trump National Doral is tougher, significantly longer, and more dramatic than ever before. Restored to its past grandeur in mid-2014 thanks to the vision of The Trump Organization who acquired the hottest golf course architect, Gil Hanse, to meticulously re-sculpt every hole. The 7,590-yard course features a series of strategically placed deep bunkers, long flowing fairways, interesting undulating greens, deep Bermuda rough and a challenging assortment of water hazards – all of which combine for a course that requires both length and finesse to score well.
The Golden Palm
The Golden Palm, appropriately named after the predominate tree found on throughout the golf course, offers yet another unique Florida resort golf experience at Trump National Doral.
It was resurrected by Gil Hanse's team with design elements similar to the iconic Blue Monster. The course offers a variety of wide-open vistas and tight tree-lined fairways with heavily contoured greens that will require a smooth putting stroke and a soft touch for success. The Golden Palm is also home to a very unique bunker style with tight-cut, clean-edges from the fairway and heavy rough around the back side of each bunker that presents an element of difficulty that you might find in the Australian countryside. The design, quality and attention to detail creates a difficult golf course for all skill levels and makes The Golden Palm a true championship course capable of hosting the best players in the world.
The Red Tiger
The spectacular Red Tiger golf course, given its name by the late, great Jackie Gleason, just may have undergone the most dramatic change of any of the course renovations at Trump National Doral.
Due to the talents of the Gil Hanse design team, the Red Tiger is an exciting challenge for the average golfer but also a surprising test for the more expert player. Set on just 120 acres, its primary design resembles a New England style course but the different varieties of palm trees throughout gives it its distinctive South Florida personality. While the goal of every tee shot should be to take advantage of the gently contoured fairways, the undulation of the small-scaled greens requires accurate shotmaking.
