18 holes. Tree-lined & open parkland. Relatively flat terrain - easy to walk.
Doral's Gold and Blue golf courses, and limited residential housing.
Original design by Robert von Hagge (1961). Later modifications by Gil Hanse (2014).
Trump National Doral boasts four 18-hole championship golf courses. Located at the resort centre are the: BLUE MONSTER course (par-72, 7590 yds from back tees); RED TIGER course (par-72, 6395 yds); GOLDEN PALM course (par-71, 7012 yds). | Located 2 mi west of the main resort is the SILVER FOX course (par-71, 7006 yds; formerly the Jim McLean course). | The Great White Shark course (just across NW 87th Ave from the resort) is no longer part of the Doral Resort.
11 miles W of downtown Miami
From I-95 in Miami, take exit 3A and head west on the Dolphin Expwy (836), direction Miami Intl Airport. After approx 8 mi exit onto NW87th Ave and head north. After 2.2 mi, just after the intersection with NW36th St, turn left into Doral Resort. | If travelling from the north (e.g. Ft Lauderdale/N Miami Beach), leave I-95 at exit 12 and join the Palmetto Expwy (826). After approx 16 mi exit onto NW36th St (948) and head west. After 1 mi turn right into NW87th Ave. After 200 yds turn left into Doral Resort.
Trump National Doral Golf Club (Red Tiger course): Setting out from the Resort's impressive clubhouse much of the Red Tiger course is flanked by Doral's Blue Monster and Golden Palm courses. Always known as the shortest and many would say easiest-going of the Doral quartet, the Red Tiger acquired sharper "claws" in 2014 following a renovation by the Gil Hanse design team.
Like its longer and more demanding stablemates, this well-maintained layout meanders through a pleasant parkland setting. Elevation changes will not trouble you, but plenty of water hazards and excellent bunkering most surely will. A variety of trees define many of the holes, never too densely to make ball-finding difficult, but potentially blocking your route to the green after a wayward tee shot.
With six par-3s and several tightish but short par-4s, this is a layout that will reward good shot-making, but punish wayward hitters who think they can muscle their way round. Many attractive design features like the bunker encircled green at the short par-5 12th, tightly dog-legging par-5 5th, island-green par-3 6th and threateningly water-flanked green at the par-5 10th, ensure that the Red course is no push-over, despite its relative lack of length. The putting surfaces, never overly large, are full of subtle slopes and borrows.
As on the other Doral courses, the only thing likely to disturb the tranquillity of this pleasant parkland environment is when Miami International air traffic uses the middle one of its four available runways.

Doral gets its name from DORis and AL Caskell who had the vision in the late 1950s to turn a large area of swamp to the west of Miami into what has become a stunningly successful golf and leisure resort. | The original names for the Doral courses - Blue, White, Gold, Red and Silver - are based on the colours typically used for the different sets of tees on Florida golf courses. | The Red course at Doral hosted the 2001 LPGA Office Depot Championship.

Biltmore; Shula's; Crandon Key Biscayne; Turnberry Isle (25 mls).
PGA Championship: the first men’s major of the year will be contested at TPC Harding Park, without spectators being present (Aug 6-9).
European Senior (Staysure) Tour: the Europe-based over-50s tour for men has taken the reluctant step of cancelling the entire 2020 season, based on the additional coronavirus risk associated with the age demographic of the players.
Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
Cullen Links Golf Club: "immensely scenic", "quirky as golf can get", "short!", "hugely enjoyable" ... Cullen Links attracts as wide a variety of comments as it lays down golfing challenges. Shoehorned into this 4,600 yard treasure trove are ten par-3s, seven par-4s and a good-length par-5. Here you'll find all the seaside scenery a golfer could ask for, and a lot more besides.
