Dubbed the ‘Kingdom of Golf', Doral is one of the world's finest comprehensive golf resorts, boasting 4 separate championship courses. One of which, The Blue Monster, was an annual host on the PGA Tour for 53 consecutive years, hosting the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.
The magnificent 800-acre resort features villa-style accommodations, exclusive Spa suites, brand new tennis courts, the Royal Palm Pool, on top of multiple luxury event venue options like the Trump Grand Ballroom.
This prestigious resort is in a perfect location too, less than 20 minutes away from the Miami International airport, and 30 minutes away from the stunning South Beach to relax and soak in some sun rays.
Already renowned the world over and rich with history, the famous 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 golf course architect Gil Hanse, meticulously re-sculpting 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 famous 18th hole is traditionally ranked as one of the most difficult on the PGA Tour. Because of this is it no surprise that it has held multiple World Golf Championships events.
The Blue Monster at Doral is ranked as one of the best courses in America

Water is prevalent throughout the Gold, with no less than 15 greens protected by the dreaded aqua. The signature hole is saved for last; the closing par 4 features an island green that demands steely nerves and pinpoint accuracy.

The Silver Course, while littered with the archetypal Doral water, is distinctly different to its neighbours; designer Jerry Pate signalled a departure from the classic Florida style by devising narrow fairways, with holes of varied length to create an interesting and diverse challenge.
Now in its 17th season, the Jim McLean golf school at Doral is widely recognised as the number 1 tuition facility in the United States, offering state-of-the-art expert tuition under the directorship of the esteemed McLean.
