Trump National Doral
Since 1962, the luxurious Trump National Doral Miami Resort has been offering championship golf, elegant accommodations, relaxing spa services, and great dining options. Known as a bucket list golf destination, the world-famous resort is a golfer's haven, as it was designed with golf at its core. Trump National Doral Miami Resort is home to four unique golf courses, among which is the legendary Blue Monster. These are the golf courses you can play at the resort:
- The Blue Monster: Redesigned by renowned golf architect Gil Hanse, the 7,590-yard course features strategically placed deep bunkers, long flowing fairways, undulating greens, deep Bermuda rough, and a challenging variety of water hazards. The Blue Monster has been a famous PGA Tour stop for many years, and the 18th hole is ranked as one of the most difficult. With infamously long fairways, the golf course became even more dramatic after it was renovated. Water hazards litter the course, providing a tough test to golfers. Like most Florida courses, the Blue Monster does not feature a lot of elevation change, but it still offers picturesque views.
- The Red Tiger: This spectacular golf course has perhaps undergone the most dramatic change of any course renovations at the resort. The Red Tiger is a very exciting challenge for the average golfer but also a surprising test for the more experienced player. While its design resembles a New England-style course, the different varieties of palm trees give it its distinctive South Florida personality. The golf course puts a premium on shot placement and strategy. It also features fairways that wind around lakes, which serve as water hazards that come into play on 14 holes. The 6th and 14th holes have challenging island greens.
- The Golden Palm: Offering yet another unique Florida resort golf experience, this course was resurrected by Gil Hanse's team with design elements similar to the iconic Blue Monster. The Golden Palm features a unique bunker style with tight-cut, clean edges from the fairway and heavy rough around the back side of each bunker, increasing the difficulty, elements you might find in the Australian countryside. Water is present on almost every hole in some form. The previously bland and uneventful putting surfaces have been completely transformed by enlarging them and adding undulations.
- The Silver Fox: As one of the most demanding tests of golf in the country, this course has water coming into play on 17 of 18 holes. Even though there are just 50 bunkers on the entire course, they are strategically placed to require a demanding game off the tee and difficult approaches to the green. Designed by Jerry Pate and Bruce Devlin, the Silver Fox is defined by a myriad of water hazards and tight fairways, which makes it a challenge even to the most experienced player. The par-71 Florida-style course features more topography than the other golf courses at the resort.
With four unique championship golf courses, Trump National Doral Miami Resort is, without a doubt, one of the greatest destinations for golf aficionados. In between rounds, you can dine in a sophisticated and elegant ambiance at one of the restaurants of the resort, such as the Champions Bar & Grill, which offers inventive menus prepared by acclaimed chefs and mixologists to satisfy every palette. Finally, Trump National Doral Miami Resort also has a spa where you can unwind after a day of playing golf.
