Length 7006 yards
Slope 148
Rating 74.9

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 course and great staff!

The course staff was extremely professional and the course was amazing! Great tee boxes and greens! The carts had built in GPS’s that tell you there distance from the hole. The course was fun and challenging at the same time. The pro shop was well stocked and the amenities were great. The range was also very nice. Definitely will play here again!

Great buildup, disappointing greens

My 17-year-old son and I were suprised and thrilled to book a tee time on an early afternoon Sunday 7-28-2019 at Trump International Silver Fox Course. For the price ($65 per round) we paid, we thought it was a steal. We compared it to the other Trump courses and it was a deep discount to play Silver Fox. Brandon in the pro shop was great as was Mike the starter. It was a little bit of a drive from the range to Silver Fox, but we made it by our 12:30 tee time and met one other golfer to complete our threesome. He wasn't sure what happened to the fourth player who booked. Overall, the course was in good shape. Tee boxes were in good condition, fairway and rough were as well. However, the greens were sadly lacking. It's been a wet summer in Florida and during our trip, it rained a lot the three days prior to our round. So, I understand the staff needs to aerate the greens to keep them in tip-top shape. However, they were anything but that. They were fast, but sandy and tricky because of the various plateaus and such. It felt like they discounted the rate because the greens were so poor. It also feels like the maintenance staff has been ordered to focus on the other three courses as they looked immaculate when we drove past a few of the holes on our way to and from Silver Fox. To summarize, we were treated like royalty by the great staff at Trump International, but were extremely disappointed with the conditions of the green. If we make it back, we will be sure to give one of the other three Trump International courses a try.

Fantastic Experience

Really wonderful day out at Trump national on the Silver Fox. Absolutely fantastic value for money through GolfNow App. Staff were extremely friendly & helpful. Course was a little bit wet and the greens were recently aerated. Despite this the course still played really nicely - greens recovering very well and rolled true and had good speed.
Will definitely be back to try and tame the Blue monster next

Great time . Unfortunately the Greens were punched probably 2 weeks earlier. Good pace. Professional staff. Well worth the trip to Doral. I’d like to play again when the greens are in prime shape.

Beautiful place!

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.

Short but challenging

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.
