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.

Trump Doral is a fantastic golf experience. From the moment you arrive . every care s taken by staff to ensure a memorable golf day.

You can valet park the car or take self parking where they will pick you up in the lot. [for fee..around 14$].

The course has driving range with complementary balls, chipping area, greens. Best to plan to arrive well in advance of your tee time to take advantage of the golf facilities all included in your rate.

The silver fox is a great track. 18 holes of pure beautfully manicured and conditions. The greens are fast but fair and superb. Fairways are in amazing shape. The golf cart is fully electronic.

Also be aware that if you arrive early with the starter, they are happy to send you off before your tee time.

The lockers have full amenities.

Everywhere, the service is first class., especially how the staff speak to you wanting you to have a great golf day.

If you have the opportunity to play Trump Doral, play!

It is by far the best golf I have played in south Florida.

From the minute we arrived until the minute we left we felt like we were part of the family. All the staff (and I do mean all) were extremely courteous and helpful but special praise for Bobby the starter who told us not to rush to the tee (we were running a bit late) but go play some practice balls, get a coffee and come back for our briefing when we were ready. When we were ready, he gave us the course brief but also some history about the place and the rebuild before telling us to relax and enjoy ourselves. Great guy. And a great place too. The practice facilities are excellent, the course is in great shape (greens not as fast as the practice greens) fairways good, allowing you to cleanly hit through the ball. You need to be accurate off the tee otherwise you are likely to find water but keep the ball on the fairway and you can score very well here. My only gripe is that some of the ladies tees were ridiculously short (61 yards in one case). Otherwise a 5 star rating in every respect. The hotel is immaculate, the spa and changing rooms are wonderful. There's a fantastic swimming pool with security etc if you want to drop your kids off. A sumptuous treat for any golfer and, looking at it in totality, it's probably the best golf day I have ever experienced. My entire group felt the same. And all for $99. Amazing. Play the Blue or Red courses and I would imagine you'd have the complete 5 star experience.

Silver fox and red tiger are the best deals on golf now. You can get 65 dollars to 85 on these 2.

They are both very challenging. Silver very narrow and red tiger there is water on every hole. It’s worth it under 100 dollars to play here. Staff is all very good. The restaurant and bar were also very good.

Trump Doral overall is absolutely fantastic. Conditons terrific and the greens perfect. However, the Silver is a step below the other 3 courses but it's still worth playing if the price is right/discounted. Never pay $250 to play this particular 1 however the other 3 warrant the price

Played this course many times over the years, even when you’d have to drive off the property to Doral Park. Currently check in is same place as the other three courses. Then you have to take a long cart ride and cross a bridge to the course. The course is in excellent shape, greens run true, very challenging (see slope and index) as well as excellent ambience. It could be better if there were more player assistance over there to keep an honest pace. Overall, highly recommend this course. To insure a great day on this golf course be sure to use tee boxes consistent with your level of play.
