Great track, challenging throughout. I went out as a single on a day without much play, so the pace of play was awesome...can't say it is always like that. Bobby the starter set me up and gave me some good advice. It's a par 71 (36/35) and I had more trouble on the back then the front thanks to hole 10 and 18...both aren't that difficult...but they can be challenging! I played from the Blues 6002 yards (69.9 / 133)...had 8 pars..so I guess I could have played from the Gold which is only 322 yards more then the Blues...the course played true and was a lot of fun. I played the Silver Fox on another day and had to go back and play the 18th on the Golden Palm on my way back in to the clubhouse. I got a good deal on Golf Now and the price was worth it, doubt I would pay full rack rate very often....but it is a fun course.

Had birdies, pars, bogeys and everything else possible. Teed off first one out in the morning. The staff is super friendly and attentive. The greens are fast but manageable. I highly recommend going to the practice area to get a feeling for the speed. On the card, I played with the flag in the No. 1 position. On putts shorter than 5 feet ended up under reading the break. On putts from 6-25 feet out ended up over reading the break...it is far more straight than it looked.

The back 9 are more difficult than the front 9. Wind played a big factor. Use the GPS, some holes visually look deceiving in distance. If you fall short of the green or your ball rolls off, at least for me, I found it better to use the putter.

Lots of sand, straight forward getting out of it. Although in one hole I was there for so long I think I got my tan just there alone. Loved the 18th island green. It really is not difficult at all, it just seems that way.

Overall, loved the facilities, the course, the staff, the setting and everything else. Definitely have to get in early and enjoy the facilities and stay later and keep enjoying them.

This was the best course I have played! Challenging but fair, water and beautiful holes up and down the course. The layout was awesome! Definetly pay the $20 for valet it makes it much easier than trying to park and pay anyways plus they take car of your clubs before and after for you. Golfed the regular $250 course for $99 and people I played with stayed at the hotel and still paid $150. Awesome deal!

As an advanced golfer, this course required deliberate shots as we had huge wind all day long. Add that strategically placed bunkers and water hazards and the risk/reward factor came into play quite frequently.

Excited to play the other courses, the entire property was first class! A must play!

I gave this a poor value rating based on the list price. At the golfnow price, it was a 5 star rating for the value. Course was in great condition. Layout was great. Very nice practice facilities. The resort itself is fairly large - so it comes with some of the hassle of that, but not a big deal.

A few holes approached being gimmicky in terms of the combination of green design and water, but that could also be a function of just playing it for the first time. After some experience you'd get to know where to hit / not to hit.

I played when it was very windy - if you don't bring your A-game on this course when the wind is blowing, watch out (and bring extra balls)!

Beautiful course, superb conditions, very difficult from near back tees in 20-30 mph winds. Very challenging in those winds. Down grain, down wind putts very fast. Wind actually blew a well struck shot with a wedge off the middle of the green down an embankment almost in the water hazard.

This course has 6 par 3"s, 6 par 4's and 6 par 5's. The course is well maintained: greens are in great shape, tboxes are level, fairways are great and the rough is fair. The holes make you think about risk and reward.

Get there early to enjoy the practice facilities. The range is in great shape and usually has balls. Occasionally they will be short but the last time I was there they had plenty. Make sure to hit a few from the chipping area and give yourself time on the putting green.

Stay after to enjoy the champions sports bar and grill. Your first round of drinks is the price in pennies of your score. So if you shot a 100 the first drink is $1.00. Make sure to bring your score card and a coupon that you get from the starter.

Parking is valet and can be a sticker shock if you are not prepared. It is expensive 20.00-34.00 plus tips 10.00-20.00 for attendants and cart boys. So plan on adding in those costs. However, they can be offset a little by not paying for a bucket of range balls and the convenience of valet parking and getting your clubs cleaned. You may also decide to use Lyft or Uber if you think you may drink.

If you need to shower before you leave they have a great locker room. If you are on a business trip this would be a great place to play before you catch your flight. They provide full size lockers and concierge services for luggage and you can shower before your flight

The course starts off strong but dwindles at 16-18. Appears they squeezed those holes in.

Only pay cash to the cart attendant, she charged my card $50 for two drinks as opposed to $14. This would not deter me from playing there, just make sure you have cash.

If you're looking for a course in mint condition, this one is. The course layout was great. The bunkers have beautiful white sand. Plenty of water in play.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Next time I visit Miami I'll be trying another one of the courses at Doral.
