4/1/2013 - Gold course was great. Course was in great shape. Hole placement was extremely challenging. Posted by Peggy (Woodbury, NJ)
4/11/2011 - Very nice course. We would play again and highly recommend it. Posted by Vinnie (Amston, CT)
6/19/2008 - Very enjoyable golf course - not too difficult, but interesting with plenty of water hazards. Our only complaint was the inaccuracy of the GPS system on the buggies - which sometimes seemed to think we were playing the Red course and gave misleading yardages. Posted by Phil (Yorkshire, United Kingdom).
6/3/2008 - Did not play. Aerated so switched to White Course. It too had been aerated but had started to come back. Not worth the price my group paid for. Posted by Curtis (Mitchellville, MD).
4/7/2008 - Great course. Everything that we expected. Posted by Joe (Baltimore, MD).
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.
