The course is in average shape but way overpriced at $115 off season. I'm not sure if they are so full of themselves because of the current owner or if they've always been like that. And beware that they charge $20 for mandatory valet fee without any notice until they go to pick up your car. The course was empty when I played (as was the Tee sheet for the next 3 days) I assume because of the high fee. For the day I played, there were only 5 tee times taken ALL DAY. Jacaranda was in better shape, with truer greens and better fairways.

I had played all of the other courses at Doral except the Silver Fox. While I found the Silver to be a really good course it is not the same caliber at the Red, Blue, and Gold courses. The course was not located on the property and we had to drive about a mile and a half from the clubhouse, thus it didn't have the feel of a Doral course (almost every hold was lined with residential properties, and there was a substantial amount of crabgrass lining the side of many holes). However, the course still had an interesting and challenging layout and the conditions were very good (although the greens had recently been punched). Overall I would say if you are going to play at Doral you might as well play the Red, Silver, or Blue courses. Although the regular rates for the Silver course are less expensive than the other three I could clearly see the reason why. Overall good course, but not worth the money.

The greens are perfect and run fast. The overall condition is very good. Only negative is weaving in/out of busy streets to get from hole to hole. Lots of water on every hole, bring extra balls if your game isn't fine tuned.

Exceptional facility!!! My only improvement suggestions would be to have more sand in the bunkers. The sand was only 1/2" deep until you hit the netting. The back nine needs another restroom. Other than that, this was by far the best course and facility I've been at. The greens were fabulous.

Golf was great. The facility is what you would expect, elegant, perhaps over the top. The staff was incredibly attentive and friendly. I especially liked the starter who ended our short conversation with, "You're going to have a great time today!"

I know that tipping is optional, but I find myself feeling cheap if I don't. Between the valet, the pre starter, the starter, the player's helper and more... I tipped darn near as much as the round of golf.

The course was great and I'm glad I did it. I'd recommend it once.

I'm typically a $50-$80 per round guy, so this was a splurge. Again, worth it for me once. If this is your price range, you'll love it. If you're more in my price range or below, you won't feel like there's value.

I found this course just to be ok, I played the a Golden course in November and found it to be way ahead of this course.

This course looks like it was a separate private course and was bought and reconfigured so it could be part of the Doral complex.

The course is in very good condition and the layout is good but not worth the money we paid, play any of the other three Doral courses and you won't be disappointed.

Doral complex is certainly worth the trip just to see how the other half live, staff were excellent and very helpful.

It is important to be very accurate with distance on this course. The course tests your patience and creativity. It is a tough course to play well so don't go in with high expectations, Bring a few extra balls as well.

Be prepared to spend 20.00 on valet parking, and 20 dollars in tips. Use Valet because the parking lot charges you as well and it can actually cost you more. Make time to visit the Champions Bar and Grill. Your first drink is only a penny for every stroke on your score card.

They have lockers and showers you can use if needed. Which is nice if traveling and will be catching a flight afterwards.

I booked the silver fox at a killer deal on golfnow, $65. This is supposed to be the cheaper of the Trump National Doral courses. If this is the cheapest, I can't even imagine how nice the red course and the blue monster can be. I don't have any complaints at all about this course. Pros: Great layout, very challenging course, greens rolled at the perfect speed (not too fast, not too slow), perfectly manicured tees, fairways and greens, GPS on the carts, complementary range balss, friendly staff and good pace of play. One can definitely tell that Trump spent a pretty penny renovating the Doral courses. Can't wait to try this course again and to try the other Trump National Doral courses.

Trump doral silver fox course was a great value at $45 per round on last minute golf.com. Course was well maintained and had allot of sand traps. Greens were all in great shape. Staff was very friendly. One of the most impressive club houses I've ever seen. Only negative was getting bagged for a mandatory $20 valet bill for parking your car.
