We played on a stiflingly hot south florida day in August, and that may influences this review. However, I found the course to be very dated and bland. I have a great golf memory for courses I like- I remember every hole on the Ocean Course at Kiawah, Pebble, The Straits, Pacific Dunes etc, but I honestly don't remember a... More

We stayed at the Doral as guests of the Pritikin Longevity Centre so we do not know the actual price paid for the room as it was part of a package. However the room was very spacious, kept very clean and the beds were extremely comfortable. Coming back to the room and enjoying the complimentary coffee on the Nespresso machine... More

How can you not tell golfers that all courses are cart path only and that resort is under major reconstruction? A $225 surcharge to play a course that is cart path only, mandatory caddie and under construction. Waited half hour for drinks poolside because there was only one waitress at the entire resort delegated to serve guests at the pool.... More

the Blue Monster is a killer! it is beautiful, and it requires exact placement of each shot. It will wear you down, but you will really like the course the pros play.

If you have the time and money, you should play this very beautiful signature golf course. It is difficult, beautiful, well maintained and long! Simply go and treat yourself!

I didn't stay at the Trump National but rather arrived after lunch with all my bags for an afternoon round of golf before heading off to the airport. I was fearful of what I would be able to do with my bags but this proved to not be an issue at all. As soon as I stepped out of my... More

This is one of the great American Golf courses. The course is challenging yet rewarding if you play it smart. Need to be very precise or will end up in a big deep fairway bunker or a lake. Greens are rolling hills with elevation changes,very fast but will receive the ball well. Windy days will make an already challenging course... More

On entering Doral, The hotel is stunning and the set up is too, however, we felt let down by the prices charged to play. The fees are are above the market for what is charged on the other championship courses. To have to have a mandatory caddie on certain times also should be optional + to have to pay a... More

Just returned from the Blue Monster. Sad to see what Mr. Trump has done to a once tough course. I wish he could move the airport so the sound of airplanes would not be the soundtrack of our day. Mr. Trump, please keep to the pageants that promote glam and glitter. Please stop "improving" once great courses. If you are... More
