The courses offer a variety of golfing options to accommodate players of any skill level. The Golden Palm Course has a traditional Floridian layout that features subtly contoured greens and narrow fairways that are lined with trees. There is also strategic bunkering throughout as well as water hazards that come into play on 16 of the 18 holes. The golf course has a notable finishing hole that has an island green. In addition to the five courses, Trump National Doral Miami is also home to a noted golf school.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Silver Fox course At Trump National in Miami. The course conditions & layout were exceptional. Cudos to the grounds crews and managment....

Golf Now provided me with a substantially reduced green fee and i appreciate that.

I would advise any golfer to play Trump National courses at least once and then you can check that off your "Bucket List". It is well worth it.

Gold is a tough golf course from yellow and black tees. The course is not long, but bunkers and some elevated greens make it play longer. The greens, approaches and fairways were in absolutely perfect condition. Bunkers have inconsistent sand depth. Some tee boxes are being topdressed. Starter Bob nice guys all around. Very good practice areas, so go early.

Played my 15th or so round here at Trump Doral - Golden Palm.

Layout is fun, lots of different shot types. Not a driver every hole.

I’m a 4 handicap and enjoy the choices off the tee.

Pros:

- better shape than most public courses in S. FL

- pace of play is good

- staff friendly

Cons:

- Price! At $250 it’s a joke, at golfnow price of $135 it’s palatable. This is a $85 track all day. More than that and consider yourself “taken for a ride” by the Trump Organization

- some tee boxes were scruffy, especially the back tees.

- sand was inconsistent, some bunkers had lots, others none.

- cart path only when the course wasn’t very wet. Carts won’t let you go off the cart path at all, makes the convenience of a cart terrible.

All I can say is wow! My buddy and I went there for a day of golf and all I can say is wow. This place is immaculate from the entrance to the facilities to the bars, pro shop, golf course, etc. The employees here are very nice and always helpful. It was our first time here and everyone always helped us get to where we needed. We felt like we were extremely welcomed for coming here. It was a beautiful day for golf when we started and we played well. Then we hit some bad luck as it started to rain and had to seek shelter until the rain stopped. We tried to finish the round, but it was very wet from the rain, so we were cart path only. Course doesn't drain quickly which caused our back nine to be bad from slipping and sliding on the course. We finished our round, head to the cart return, where we were greeted by Michael who ask how our round was. We told him about our round and how we got rained on. He offered us to go back out and replay the rained holes or whatever we wanted. Oh my, this made us extremely happy. At this point the course dried up some. Our 2nd go around was a much better experience. We played much better. Stayed afterwards for sone more drinks and some food. Overall, an excellent day at a very impressive course. We played the gold course. Tee boxes need some work, but the fairways and layout is very nice. Greens were excellent and fast. Definitely will be back to play the other courses! Thank you for such a great day out.

We really enjoyed this course and the facilities. They were top notch.

My only complaints are:

1) I felt like I had to tip everyone everywhere, from parking/valet to picking up clubs after valet, food service, etc.

2) I found a great deal at almost half price on Golf now, I don't think I'd pay $250 for a round

3) rental clubs were $90! Terribly excessive.

Hosted two out of town guests for round on Gold Course. Number of issues that raise serious questions about the future of this course. Delay in bags being delivered from valet, wet golf carts, starter sent us to wrong course, singles and twosomes allowed on course before noon, golf carts malfunctioning, beat up tee boxes, divots all over greens. Tried to speak with manager after round about issues and poor experience but seemed uninterested. Received standard sorry response with no attempt to remedy the situation. I am a local with an annual VIP Premiere Card and Patron Card. Play twice a week and will never visit this course again. Unfortunate course management.

This is a challenging course. Greens will test your reading skills. Loved the test. Would highly recommend th experience. Be prepared to pay for parking $14 self park. $20 valet. That would have been good to know. Still worth it.

The hotel clubhouse and pro shop are amazing the staff is extremely friendly and helpful but when you get onto the course be prepared that it’s not like the rest of trump Doral world

They were very disorganized when you pick up your cart The carts were beat and dirty with a flat tire I would assume that they ran out of scoring cards very un trump like . I sent them an email nobody bothered to respond I hate to say it but if you’re on vacation in Florida save your money and play at Disney

The course was in fantastic condition, greens apparently were punch over a month or more ago but roll true and look great. Front 9 is long from gold or tips for a higher handicapper golfer, but average wide fairway makeup for the length. Gold’s play 6300 plus but you can move up to whites which is 6000 plus. The back 9 looks is much shorter but because of the wind it plays longer. Friendly staff great atmosphere really enjoyed the day there.
