Trump National Doral Golf
Trump National Doral is famed for its golf and has earned a reputation over 45 years as one of the country's most celebrated golf resorts. Doral has four championship courses and each one provides a perfect challenge for players of every skill levels. The famed award-winning Blue Monster course has hosted annual PGA Tour events since 1962 and every great name in golf has had his moment of glory on this world class track. This flagship venue is nicely complemented by the Red Tiger, Golden Palm and Silver Fox courses, as well as the Jim McLean Golf School, and the TaylorMade Performance Lab to form a true golfing paradise.
• The Blue Monster Course
Dick Wilson (1961) + Raymond Flyod + Gil Hanse (2014)
18 holes – 7,510 yds - Par 72 - Venue of the World Golf Championships
Already renowned the world over and rich with history, the famous Blue Monster at Trump National Doral is significantly tougher, longer, and more dramatic than ever before. Rebuilt to reclaim its past grandeur in mid-2014 thanks to the vision of Doral’s owner Donald J. Trump who retained the hottest golf course architect, Gil Hanse, to meticulously resculpt every hole. Hanse and his design associate Jim Wagner rebuilt the Blue Monster and created a layout with outstanding shot values. The truest test of golf for PGA TOUR players for over 50 years, with a champions’ list that reads like a Who’s Who of Golf (Jack Nicklaus won it twice, Greg Norman three times, Tiger Woods four), the Blue Monster remains an exhilarating experience for resort guests and club members who relish the strongest challenge.
• The Golden Palm Course
Robert von Hagge (1976) + Raymond Flyod + Gil Hanse (2014)
18 holes - Par 70 - 6609 yards - Parkland
Currently under renovation, the new Golden Palm, appropriately named after the predominate tree found throughout the golf course, will offer yet another unique and challenging golf experience at Trump National Doral. Set to open at the start of 2015, it is being resurrected by Gil Hanse’s team with similar design elements as the famous Blue Monster. The Gold’s heavily contoured; firm and fast greens will require a smooth putting stroke and a soft touch. The Golden Palm provides wide-open vistas and a unique-style of bunkers with tight cut, clean-edges running along sprawling fairway lines. The design, quality and attention to detail creates a different golf concept for all skill levels and makes the new Golden Palm a true, championship course capable of hosting the best players in the world.
• The Red Tiger Course
Robert von Hagge (1964) + Gil Hanse (2014)
18 holes – 7,025 yds - Par 71 – Slope/Rating 70.8/134
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 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 give it its distinctive South Florida personality. While the goal of every tee shot should be to take advantage of the gently contoured fairways, the subtle undulation of the small greens requires both bold and accurate shotmaking.
• The Silver Fox Course
Bruce Delvin (1981) + Jerry Pate (1986) + Jim McLean (2009) + Gil Hanse (2014)
18 holes - Par 71 - 6557 yards - Parkland
The sensational Silver Fox course at Trump National Doral is one of the most demanding tests of golf in the country. Water comes into play on 16 of 18 holes, and it’s striking, marble-white sand bunkers dictate that only well-struck drives and approaches are rewarded. Although there are only 50 bunkers on the entire course, they are strategically placed to require a demanding game off the tee and difficult approaches to the green. The Silver Fox is home to the Bermuda Triangle, nicknamed for holes 6, 7 and 8 because so many balls go missing on this tough stretch of holes. The Silver Fox is the farthest course from the clubhouse, yet it is an easy cart ride from Doral’s practice tee and is connected to the main property by a million-dollar bridge that resembles a Roller Coaster because it rises and curves dramatically in Coney Island fashion. The golfer who rides over this bridge arrives at the first tee knowing that a tremendous round of golf awaits.
Caddie Services available- Walking permitted. Golf Carts included with greens fee. Practice Facility and club fitting and repairs on site

• The Biltmore Golf Club
Domald Ross (1925) 18 holes - 6,800 yds - Par 71
With its art deco architecture and earthy coloured buildings, Coral Gables feels more like a village of the Italian Riviera than a suburb of Miami. And the center piece of the Gables is the Biltmore Hotel, built in 1925 with a tower modeled after the Giralda of Seville (Spain). Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, The Biltmore Hotel has been fully restored to its former splendour and continue to offer stylish accommodation with breathtaking views of Miami and the historic Donald Ross Course.
Designed in 1925 by the famous Scotsman, who was the pre-eminent golf designer of his era, this classic venue has always attracted the rich and famous, dignitaries, sports and movie stars. Variety, strategy and naturalness are the most consistent traits in a Ross design. With its 2007 restoration by architect Brian Silva, the Biltmore Golf Course once again embodies these characteristics and the course is acknowledged as one of the finest resort layouts in the South.
• Miami Beach Golf Club (Bayshore Golf Club)
Formerly Bayshore GC (1923) + Arthur Hills (2002) 18 holes - 6,813 yds - Par 72
Originaly opened as the Bayshore Golf Club back in 1923, the club was part of Carl Fisher’s ambitious project to build three large golf courses in the Miami Beach area to lure wealthy winter residents from the country’s northern big cities. During WW II, the US Army rented the course as a training ground till the end of the war in 1944, when Chicago investors moved in to buy the course and build upscale homes. But under the pressure of the neighbours, the City of Miami Beach cancel the deal and buy the land to keep the golf course open to all.
Half a century later, the course received a complete face lift in 2002 under the direction of Arthur Hills & Associates, wih removed every blade of grass and most trees, drained and redesigned lakes, replaced the irragation system, reshaped hills and bunkers and built a brand new clubhouse: The once tired and under-used Bayshore has now become the highly regarded municipal Miami Beach Golf Club, a restored landmark opened to all and complemented by a Jun McLean Golf Academy.
• Normandy Shores Golf Club
Howard Toomy & William S. Flynn (1941) + Mark Manahah (1956) + Arthur Hills (2008) 18 holes - 6,805 yds - Par 71
Another muncipal facility, the land for this golf course was donated to the City of Miami Beach in 1928 and from that point the city worked hard to create the man made Norman Shores Isles on the Indian River, just off the 79th Street Causeway. The building of the golf course was then comissionned to archotect Howard Toomy and William S. Flynn an the course inaugurated in December 1941. Unfrotunatly, the outbreak of WW II just follow and the facilities were used as training grounds by the US Army ! But the years of the Postwar boom were the Club’s heyday and in 1956, the City hired Mark Manahah to redisigned the course.
Once the renovation completed, Normandy shres beacame the favourite playing ground of such golf legends as Sam Snead, Arnold Palmer or Peter Thompson, who played its lush fairways and greens on a regular basis. Today the course is still a favourite amongst both local and visitors, for its central position, easy access and excellent playing conditions, having been fully renovated and brought back to its former glory by Arthure Hills in 2008.
• Miami Springs Golf & Country Club
Thomas “Tubby” Martin (1923) 18 holes - 6,741 yds - Par 71
In the post WW I period, a group of businessmen and politician golf enthusiasts promoted the building of a golf course for visitors to the area. The facility opened as the Miami Hialeh Golf Club in 1923, making it the oldest municipal course in South Florida. The List of golfers who have played this course since reads like a Who’s Who of the most famous personalities of these times, from Walter Hagen, Tommy Armour, Gene Sarazen, Byron Nelson and Sam Snead to Dinah Washington, Nat "King" Cole, Sugar Ray Robinson, Joe Louis and Arnold Palmer. Miami Springs has been the home of the PGA Miami Open from 1925 to 1955, and the first golf course in Florida to admit black players.
At the centre of a pioneer country estate built aorund the course, the country club has been classified as a Histroic Site in 2008. Its name and the name of the city, Miami Springs, comes from the abundant fresh water discovered under the golf course and its surrouding, which allowed the city of Miami to continue growing when its wells were threatened by saltwater intrusion. The original wooden aqueducts still exist under the greens.
• Miami Shores Country Club
Red Lawrence (1939) 18 holes - 6,373 yds - Par 71
Built back in 1939 by ASGCA Red Lawrence, the course at Miami Shores has been recently totaly renovated to offer lush bermuda grass fairways and a beautiful championship course with a vast array of sub-tropical wildlife and vegetation. Located less than fifteen minutes from downtown Miami, Miami Beach, and Miami International Airport, Miami Shores is a must play course, easily accessible from anywhere in Dade and Broward counties.
• Crandon Park Golf Club (The Links at Key Biscayne)
Robert von Hagge & Bruce Devlin (1972) 18 holes - 7,301 yds - Par 72
Formerly known as "The Links at Key Biscayne", Crandon Park Golf Course is a championship course located on Key Biscayne Island, just 10 minutes from downtown Miami. Built in 1972 by Robert von Hagge and Bruce Devlin, this subtle but enticing challenge was redesigned by von Hagge himself in 1993, bringing in new greens and bunker configurations. The layout boast the world's largest tee, seven saltwater lakes, challenging bunkers, mangrove thickets and many holes overlooking Biscayne Bay, providing for some spectacular views.
The course is also a refuge for wildlife, with three “home” corcodiles, numerous raccoons and iguanas darting across the course. Lack of “birdies” can be compensated by “bird watching”, with herons, ibises, egrets, pelicans and anhinga gracing the roughs and saltwater banks. In many ways Crandon Park can be considered as Miami-Dade county’s signature public course.
Miami Dade County
Miami is one of the 50 largest cities in the US, but Miami’s metro area is the seventh most populous urban area in the country, with a population of well over 5 million. Nicknamed the “Capital of Latin America”, for its large colony and strong connections with Cuba and South America at large, Miami is a major center of finance, commerce, culture, media and international trade.
Miami and its neighbor Miami Beach are cities of emotion, color and texture, put on the map by the popular TV series “Miami Vice” in the 1990’s, which help to glamourize the city also with a backdrop of drug trade and criminal underworld. Much of Miami's appeal is due to its diversity, ranging from towering, contemporary skyscrapers in Downtown Miami, the commercial heart of the city, to Little Havana, the thriving Cuban community neighborhood. Meanwhile, the Port of Miami is the world's largest cruise port known as the “Cruise Capital of the World”. Miami Beach is world famous for its gold coast hotel strip, luxury properties and its glamorous South Beach neighborhood, with its candy-colored Art-Deco buildings set against a clear skies, blue ocean, pale sandy beaches and swaying palm trees, where beautiful, tanned bodies parade the sands and everyone dresses up, or down, to see and be seen.
But there is much more to Miami that “sun, sea and sand” and it is fast becoming one of the most exciting cultural cities in the United States. The Wynwood Arts District and Miami Design District are thriving hubs for the arts. The Miami Art Museum has moved to new premises in the middle of a sprawling museum park at Biscayne Bay, to be joined by a new science museum harnessing natural energy from the water, sun and wind. The Frank Gehry’s New World Center made great fuss when inaugurated in 2011 for its jaw-dropping design and the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) has recently benefitted from a total reforming that has tripled its gallery space.
And if you ever get tired of the city and its impressive offer, you can always escape heading out of the metro area east to the Everglades, a sprawling flooded wetland unique in the world and home to alligators, north to the classy Venetian-style Fort Lauderdale and aristocratic Palm Beach, or south to the Florida Keys, a narrow stretch of bridged atolls extending into the Caribbean all the way down to Key West.
