Golf Resort Amenities Include:
- Four championship golf courses that have hosted the PGA Tour for over 50 years, and winner of Travel & Leisure Golf Magazine’s “Best Golf Resort” and Golf Digest’s “Best Places To Play,” and recognized as one of the “World’s 10 Best Golf Spas” by Forbes.com.
- Home of the infamous “Blue Monster” — over 7,100 yards of manmade lakes and Bermuda grass rough that have seduced and confounded Tour professionals for five decades. The Blue Monster recently received an expansion and redesign courtesy of renowned golf architect Gil Hanse. It was featured in USA Today’s list of “Florida’s Most Intriguing Golf Courses That You Can Play Now.” The 18th hole was dubbed one of the “Top 100 Holes in the World.”
- The Rick Smith Performance Center, led by Rick Smith. The academy has 21 teachers and conducts golf clinics and private lessons at the Doral golf resort year-round.
Blue Monster | Golf Course
Already renowned the world over and rich with history, the famous Blue Monster is tougher, significantly longer, and more dramatic than ever before. Restored to its past grandeur in mid-2014 by golf course architect Gil Hanse, who meticulously resculpted every hole. Hanse and his design associate Jim Wagner returned the Blue Monster to the outstanding shot values envisioned by original architect Dick Wilson. The truest test of golf for PGA TOUR players for over 50 years, the Blue Monster remains an exhilarating experience for Pritikin guests who relish a strong challenge.
Red Tiger | Golf Course
The spectacular Red Tiger golf course, given its name by the late, great Jackie Gleason, just may have undergone the most dramatic change of any of the recent Doral course renovations. Due to the talents of the Gil Hanse design team, the Red is an exciting challenge for the average golfer but also a surprising test for the more expert player. Set on just 120 acres, its primary design resembles a New England-style course, but the different varieties of palm trees throughout give it its distinctive South Florida personality. While the goal of every tee shot should be to take advantage of the gently contoured fairways, the subtle undulations of the small scaled greens require both bold and accurate shotmaking.
Golden Palm | Golf Course
The new Golden Palm, appropriately named after the predominate tree found on throughout the golf course, offers yet another unique and challenging golf experience for Pritikin Guests. This freshly opened course was resurrected by Gil Hanse’s team with similar design elements as the famous Blue Monster. The Gold’s heavily contoured greens, firm and fast, will require a smooth putting stroke and soft touch. However, this true links style course with wide-open vistas will be home to unique-style bunkers with tight cut, clean-edges running along sprawling fairway lines. The design, quality and attention to detail creates a different golfing contest for all skill levels and makes the new Golden Palm a true, championship course.
Silver Fox | Golf Course
The sensational Silver Fox course is one of the most demanding tests of golf in the country. Water comes into play on 16 of 18 holes, and it’s striking, marble-white sand bunkers dictate that only well-struck drives and approaches are rewarded. The Silver Fox features three of the longest consecutive holes to begin a nine in all of Florida and is home to the Bermuda Triangle, nickname for holes 6, 7 and 8 because so many balls go missing. Draped in a wall-to-wall carpet of Celebration Bermuda grass, the course is both beautiful to look at and visually intimidating. The narrow landing areas require a demanding game off the tee, yet the greens are true, fast and accessible. For the golfer who is playing well, a good score is within reason.
