Trump National Doral Golf Club Golden Palm Course is one of four fantastic, redesigned eighteens at Trump National Doral Miami, an iconic full-service, Miami luxury resort. You don t have to stay at this venerable, highly decorated retreat to play the courses public tee times are welcome at all Doral layouts. While the Trump National Doral Golf Club Golden Palm Course may not have the cachet of the legendarily formidable Blue Monster Course, it boasts many of the design elements and playing characteristics of the resort s signature championship course at about half the green fee price. Originally a Robert von Hagge design from 1967 and then redesigned by Ray Floyd in 1995, the course was transformed by the renowned architect Gil Hanse in 2015. Much like they did on Doral s other layouts, Hanse and his team redesigned Trump National Doral Golf Club Golden Palm Course in a way that has enhanced the look and strategic elements of the playing field. Since the Blue Monster provided the inspiration for Trump National Doral Golf Club Golden Palm Course, it is fitting that this younger sister championship links is just about as challenging a test as the Blue Monster Course itself. The playing field provides an exciting mix of holes. You ll find wide-open rolling fairways that lend the layout a links-style aspect with expansive vistas of the playing field, as well as tree-lined tests that play tight. The routing works its way around a lake. Water in some form is present on almost every hole. Wind also wreaks havoc with your shots of this exposed layout. No hole is more challenging or fun to play on Trump National Doral Golf Club Golden Palm Course than the 18th. This long par-4 begins with a tee shot through a narrow shoot of trees and culminates at the island green. Be sure to choose your tee markers wisely or you ll be in for a long day. One of the neatest features of the course is its bunkering. Inspired by Australia s sandbelt courses, Hanse opted for tight-cut, clean edges on the fairway side of the bunkers and heavy rough at the back side of the sand pits. Perhaps the most dramatic and entertaining aspect of the redesigned Trump National Doral Golf Club Golden Palm Course is its greens. The formerly bland and uneventful putting surfaces have been totally transformed by enlarging them and adding pronounced undulations. These greens are now fun to putt on. All four Trump National Doral Golf Club courses play out of the same clubhouse and share practice facilities that include a driving range, putting green, and chipping green. The grand clubhouse features a huge pro shop and two restaurants BLT Prime and the Champions Bar & Grill. Of course, Trump National Doral Miami resort offers everything you could ask for in an upscale getaway experience, topped by great golf. For one tee time, though, if you are looking to test your skills on a course that provides all of the fun challenges of the Blue Monster Course but at a much lower green fee, choose Trump National Doral Golf Club Golden Palm Course.
