Miami, Florida’s Doral Golf Resort must think its “new” course is so nice, they had to open it twice.
The Jim McLean Signature Course, which is a complete overhaul of what was the forgettable Silver Course, opened back in June. But that didn’t stop Doral from having a “grand opening” two weeks ago.
The course is the first full design project for McLean, who is best known as a top golf instructor, and it opens with the “Bermuda Triangle,” what the resort says is, “arguably the three toughest starting holes of golf in Florida.”
Mmm. I wonder if there’s a sign up form for McLean’s on-site golf school at the fourth tee.
Anyway, the editors of Golf Odyssey recently played the course as part of one of their trademark, “secret shopper” inspections (they examined the entire resort) and I’ll tell you about some of their more interesting findings in an upcoming post. In the meantime, enjoy these photos.
