The Silver Fox Course (formerly known as Jim McLean Course) is one of five 18-hole courses at Trump National Doral Miami. The courses offer a good game for players of any skill level. Unlike the Gold Course at the resort, the Silver Fox Course does not follow a traditional Floridian layout. There are elevated tee boxes and greens and narrow, rolling fairways. The golf course features an interesting variety of holes, short and long. Water hazards come into play on 16 holes of the 18 holes and there are also bunkers situated throughout. The course's signature hole is the 14th, which has an island green.

Really nice course! Tough but not crazy. Greens are fast and true. A little bit of a ride to get to first tee box, but you get to see some of the rest of the courses. Would definitely recommend the whole Trump national experience.

6,000 yards from the blue tees, yet challenging approach shots to the greens. Course is in perfect condition and the pace of play was surprisingly fast (3 hours!). The staff at Doral are amazing and literally bend over backwards to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Would go back in a heartbeat.

First and foremost, the greens on the Silver Fox were close to perfect, extremely fast and very true to the line. The course setup was very fair from the white tees. I used irons off the two short par fours after viewing the overview hole electronic layout provided in each cart, definitely avoiding a lost ball in the water. Very restrictive where carts may go!

I played the course for the first time. Lot of water hazards but the layout was ok. Pace of play was very slow. The staff at the pro shop was extremely unfriendly. They don’t need to care about customers.

Silver Fox is a good course, not great. Lots of hidden water, but the cart GPS helps. Bring plenty golf balls. Pace of play was good. Finished in 4 hours and 10 minutes. Practice facilities are great. Staff is great. No half way house. Very good food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Very nice bar with patio. Pricey

I've played this course a couple times recently and just love the layout and condition. There is a LOT of water on the course so you better hit it straight or bring a bunch of balls. (Unless of course you decide to play the blacks, then you better hit it really far and really straight!) The course has been in great shape and does not seem to get heavy play. However, the pace of play was brutal! (Again, the course was far from full) We waited on every single shot and not just a minute or two. What is shocking to me, as this group in front of us created so much pain to be behind, was there are no marshals on the course. None. And apparently never according to the staff when we eventually finished. I just don't get it and it will likely keep me from going back. Just too bad...
