Miami, Fl (PRWEB) March 26, 2013
On April 1, the legendary TPC Blue Monster Course at Doral® Golf Resort & Spa will be closing for eight months of renovation as part of a $250 million transformation of the iconic resort, the newest addition to the Trump Hotel Collection™. The world-renowned course will reopen for play on December 1.
Proud host of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship, the course recently welcomed golf's top professionals for the 7th World Golf Championships tournament, held March 6-10 and won by Tiger Woods.
Golfers of all skill levels can still play like a professional on The Blue Monster Course and take advantage of the limited- time “Blue Monster” package, which includes room, breakfast buffet and golf. In addition to enjoying the benefits of Miami's warm weather, golfers who play be-"fore" the renovation will receive an exclusive invitation to play after the upgrades are completed.
Renowned golf course architect Gil Hanse has been retained to work directly with Donald J. Trump and the PGA TOUR leadership to enhance and renovate The Blue Monster, which is one of the most famous golf courses in the world and home to a PGA TOUR event every year since its opening more than 50 years ago. Hanse's plans focus on bringing the Blue Monster up to the highest standards and levels of golf.
Originally designed by Dick Wilson, The Blue Monster features long fairways, undulating green, a deep Bermuda rough and a unique assortment of water hazards. At 7,125 yards from the tournament tees, and with a series of strategically placed bunkers, both length and finesse are needed to score well on this historic course. The Blue Monster's famous 18th hole, with its signature fountain, was ranked by GOLF Magazine as one of the Top 100 Holes in the World and by Golfweek Magazine's Best Courses You Can Play.
The Blue Monster is open to golfers at all levels. For tee time reservations, please dial 800-71-DORAL or visit http://www.doralresort.com/Golf/BookNow.asp.
