Imagine the excitement of playing where the PGA Tour plays (we were well aware of the construction, the extent of it however was all encompassing. No need to use your camera). The excitement dissapeared quickly. Upon arrival the main parking lot was closed and we were redirected to park at The Spa several blocks away. When we asked about a restaurant serving breakfast we were directed to the spa restaurant. The eating area for us was in a smaller room than the spa guests with no staff and the cost would have been $60.00 for two. After settling for toast and coffee we were shuttled off to the proshop where the experience really started to sour. We paid for two green fees and two sets of rental clubs which totalled about $600.00. Then we asked where the range was to warm up and the response was initially comical. We got directions but then were asked how many balls we wanted to hit. Why I asked. Why because after already dropping $600 we had to pay $16.05 for 35 balls!! We have played resort golf all over USA, Canada, Bermuda, Los Cabos and Ireland where you don't rent the balls. Talk about cheap !! We didn't think it could get any worse BUT wait, they saved the best for last. When we were leaving we had to pay $8.00 to get out of the self parking lot! WOW !! As nice as the people were, the condtion of the course, the Blue Monster Pro Shop (where we spent another $400) and the starter we will NEVER EVER return and when I wear my Trump Doral logo shirt, I will tell everyone about the nickel and dime mentality that truly soured what should have a great day.
