TPC BLUE MONSTER COURSE YARDAGE: 6701 | SLOPE / RATING: 72.2 / 125
Originally designed by noted architect Dick Wilson, the Blue Monster has been modified and updated over the past 20 years to meet the demands of the annual PGA TOUR by two-time Doral Golf Resort & Spa champion and Hall-of-Famer Raymond Floyd and world-renowned golf instructor Jim McLean. Famous golf course architect, Gil Hanse has been retained to work directly with Donald J. Trump and the PGA leadership to enhance and renovate the Blue Monster. Most recently the greens and bunkers were modernized under the watchful eye of the PGA Tour for the WGC-Cadillac Championship, whose inaugural event at Doral Golf Resort & Spa was played in 2007.
THE GREAT WHITE YARDAGE: 6679 | SLOPE / RATING: 71.7 / 130
A Greg Norman Signature Course, the 7,171-yard, par-72 Great White Course is the only golf course of its kind in the Southeastern United States that utilizes coquina – crushed shells – as the primary design element on every hole. Host to the PGA TOUR's Franklin Templeton "Shoot-Out" in 2000, the Great White was rated as the best new golf course of 2000 by the National Golf Foundation.
THE GOLD COURSE YARDAGE: 6209 | SLOPE / RATING: 70.7 / 124
PGA Tour legend Raymond Floyd recently redesigned this course to follow a traditional Florida layout, incorporating gently contoured greens, strategic bunkering and water surrounding 16 holes. The course features narrow, tree-lined fairways and finishes with a dramatic par-4 island green on the 18th hole. This course hosted the 1999 PGA Qualifying School finals.
THE RED COURSE YARDAGE: 6058 | SLOPE / RATING: 69.9 / 118
The Red Course forces golfers to use strategy and shot placement, rather than driving for show. Featuring 14 water holes with fairways winding around several lakes, the course provides breath-taking beauty and exhilarating challenges, without intimidating length. This course hosted the LPGA in 2001 for the Office Depot Championship.
THE JIM McLEAN SIGNATURE COURSE: 6602 SLOPE / RATING: 72.7/142
The Jim McLean Signature Course joined the infamous Blue Monster and the Great White as the third of Doral Golf Resort & Spa's premier courses. It is unique among courses in the Southeast because it presents a variety of challenges that include three of the toughest starting holes in golf, a series of phenomenal par 3s, and "The Bermuda Triangle" of the 13th through 15th holes. Five sets of tees let golfers from novices to champions decide how difficult they want the course to be – but no matter where they start, they'll have earned a real sense of accomplishment every time they finish.
