3/9/2013 - Excellent course and service. Forecaddie very helpful. We played a few weeks prior to WGC at Doral. It was a great day. Posted by Mark (Palm Bch Gdns, FL)
1/25/2013 - Good course and worth the trip. Greens and fairways were in good condition and water comes into play several times. Posted by Robert (LA184QS Cumbria Millom, UNITED KINGDOM)
1/25/2013 - Great course, expensive but worth it to live the Dream. Tony and the staff welcome you before the first tee but after a tame first 2 holes you find out why it is called the blue monster. Posted by Robert (LA184QS Cumbria Millom, UNITED KINGDOM)

4/26/2012 - Stayed at Doral so a must play course! Great condition considering the traffic. Well laid out course with some fantastic holes. Not as difficult as expected though, as we were advised to play the members hybrid way!! Posted by Adrian (07180 Santa Ponsa, SPAIN)
1/24/2012 - Very much a monster. I was walking the course with a caddy. That's the best way to play the course. The golf course is difficult and not for beginners or high handicapper. Greens were slow but the fairway and rough were in fantastic shape. Service is outstanding. Posted by Gabrielle (St. John'S, NL CANADA)

12/12/2007 - Just what you expect in a PGA level course - great driving holes, sand and/or water in play on almost every shot, and lightning fast greens. Too bad it is so expensive. Posted by BWD.
This resort, which was named to "Golf Digest's" 1998 list of "Silver Medal Resorts," has four outstanding eighteen hole courses. Playing these courses is considered to be the ultimate golfing experience. Since there are a variety of courses to choose from, every conceivable kind of challenge is available. The most demanding layout is the Blue Course. This course hosts the Doral-Ryder Open every year in March. "GOLF Magazine" even selected it to their 1998 list of "Top 10 PGA Courses You Can Play." "Golf Digest" chose this course as the 10th "Best in State" course for 1995-96, and 11th in 1997-98. It was also selected by the same publication as 42nd in the category of "Top 75 Resort Courses" for 1996. "GOLF Magazine" selected the Blue Course 29th in the category of "Top 100 Course You Can Play in the U.S." for 1998. Ray Floyd redesigned this course prior to the 1997 Doral-Ryder Open. The Gold Course, which was also redesigned by Floyd, has narrow, well-bunkered fairways, including nine that are doglegs. The signature hole is #18, a 397-yard, par 4, which calls for an approach shot to an island green. The Red Course was redesigned in 1989 and features undulating greens that can be difficult to read. Hole #5 was changed from a par 5 to a par 3 in 1997. The White Course has rolling fairways and greenside sand bunkers. All four courses have water hazards coming into play, including the Gold Course, which has water in play on every hole. The Doral Golf Learning Center with Jim McLean is located on the premises. Caddies are mandatory if you choose to walk the courses.
