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.

Great Surprise

Love the layout is the second hardest course at Doral but not impossible. Only the green on number 5 was not perfect and has some dirt. All the the other 17 are in perfect shape. I got 30 minutes of a lot of rain and you couldn’t tell after. Pace of play was great. The food cart never went by. I have play red and blue but silver was the most fun

Another great course

Great course. Only downside is the scenery is not as nice as the gold red or blue. You definitely know you’re in Miami with the traffic and noise. Course itself is great though. On par with the other 3.

Most beautiful course open to the public in south florida

Beats any other course open to the public by FAR. Better than most private courses even. Fabulously well maintained, gorgeous grounds. Great experience every time.

Challenging Course

The Trump courses in Doral are always fun but a challenge.
The course was in great shape and the staff is outstanding.
There was a silly $10 fee to self park which makes no sense but everything else was outstanding.
My friends and I try to play one of these course once a month or so just to change things up from our normal courses and it is always a delightt.

July 4th Round

Great day at Trump Doral. Even in the brutal heat, the course was in great condition and challenging to play. Starter gave out waters to each player. Drink cart made its way several times through our group. Pace of play was spectacular even with a group in front of us that left something on every hole and came back to retrieve it. Worst part was the ridiculous speed restrictors on the golf carts. That has to stop. Other than that, top notch

COVID

COVID has an impact that prevented us from enjoying a wonderful club house.

Tees fairways and greens are among the best I have ever played. However, the the areas just off the fairways and even around the greens are inconsistent. This was a surprise given the high stature for this course. The layout was a challenge with water hazards in play on 16 holes. It was fun to navigate the risk reword options.

Over all we had a wonderful time.

Good course in great shape!

All of the courses at Doral area always in great shape and worth playing. Some times a bit over priced, but since you can count on them being in great shape, it is worth paying a bit more.
HOWEVER, paying $ 14.00 to self park and have to carry your clubs over a mile to the cart staging area is ludicrous and ridiculous.
When the course opened after Covid, self parking was free and now that the hotel it back open, they are charging for self parking.

Amazing Greens

Got a Hot Deal on GolfNow and had to go play. It’s a hard course, so you have to be precise off the tee. The greens are running great and quick. Highly recommended.

A day out at Trump National

We live in the Florida Keys and anytime we have friends visiting who love golf the way we do, we try and make it a special day and that of course, it has to be a day of golf they will talk with their grandchildren about. I must say that our 18 weren't all good but we did have a good time. The silver fox is an awesome course and...I actually got my ball close to the hole on the little island green. It was fun. The staff couldn't be more attentive and our day was perfect. I highly recommend it.
