TRUMP DORAL – COURSE DETAILS 

The Blue Monster has been earning its name for over half a century, taming the greats of our game with its endless perils.

This 7,590-yard course is practically more water than land, so vast are the lakes that lie in wait around every corner. The fairways are wafer-thin, the greens are fiercely guarded and the 18th hole is one of the most ruthless finishers in all of golf.

The 2023 Team Championship was held here and produced a moment of magic that will live long in the memory. Bryson DeChambeau hit a Hail Mary Birdie on the 16th which came from behind the hospitality stand, a pivotal moment as his Crushers GC clinched one of their famous comebacks.

And how’s your golfing memory as the ‘Blue Monster’ as it was just over eight years ago a frustrated Rory McIlroy heaved a club into the water in anger Friday, playing the rest of the second round of the 2015 WGC-Cadillac Championship without his 3-iron, then spending several interviews afterward explaining actions that will be replayed extensively.

McIlroy didn’t apologize, but admitted it wasn’t “one of my proudest moments” after a 2-under-par 70 at Trump National Doral’s Blue course left him at 1-under overall, eight strokes back of tournament leader J.B. Holmes.

McIlroy’s club was rescued from the depths of the Blue Monster and was later presented to him.  Rors donated the club to Trump Doral and it’s on display in the clubhouse.
