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.

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.

Best course there!

Silver Fox could be my favorite of the four courses at Trump Doral, it may even be the most challenging if you can believe that. Great layout, condition, ambiance. Highly recommend.

Don’t bother

The Silver Fox is a subdivision lined trick track. I have no idea why this off the main campus course is part of Doral. The fairways are in good shape, greens run fast and that’s where it ends. Off fairway grass is thin in many areas. It was dry as a bone yet we still had cart path only. It’s not as tough as advertised and should go for about 80 bucks in high season. So disappointing visually. 2 of our three shot in the 70s - and we really didn’t hit it that well. Pass on this albatross.

Starting 2020 with a bang!!!

What a way to start the first day of a new decade by playing Trump National Dural January 1st, 2020!!! Trump pays attention to every detail on his property from the course, greens, the grounds, the hotels and amenities, down to the the leather on his golf carts. Class A all the way!!!
