Doral Golf Resort & Spa Review - So Much More Than Golf

Doral. That one word for even the most novice fan conjures up thoughts of golf. The Doral Golf Resort and Spa is certainly one of the premiere destinations in the world for golf, but if that is all you think there is, you are missing an entire vacation destination that has something in store for the whole family.

Blue Lagoon Waterpark

The Doral Golf Resort and Spa has created an entire city of activities on the 650-acre Doral grounds, allowing you to just be able to relax and enjoy yourself without ever having to leave the Doral. To make life easier on you, the Doral is only minutes from the Miami airport and it is just a taxi ride away from South Beach, so no need to worry about renting a car.

The Doral will also take care of any other function you could imagine, family reunion, bachelor party, birthday or anniversary celebration and if you book at least ten rooms, the Doral will even give you a discount. When it comes to meetings, the Doral has the ability to cater to any group. They have over 100,000 square feet of event space, including the 24,000 square-foot Legends Ballroom.

The Doral is one place that has plenty of activities to keep the kids busy on your vacation as well. Camp Doral offers a wide-variety of activities for children ages 5-12 for either a half-day or for the entire day. In addition there are plenty of opportunities to work on your kid’s golf game at the Jim McLean Golf School, as they offer plenty of junior lessons. If that isn’t fun enough for the kids, who could turn down the chance to hang out at the Blue Lagoon water park, with multiple pools, 125-foot waterslide and a waterfall, this is a fabulous place for the entire family to spend the day together.

What is a resort without a spa? The Doral provides everything in its spa that will help you rejuvenate the mind, body and soul. The Spa at Doral has 52 treatment rooms and countless treatments, including; massage therapy, body treatments, skincare treatments and salon services. Honestly there are too many services to mention individually, but you can be certain, that whatever type of massage you are looking for, the Doral has it. If you are looking for a workout while you are at the Doral, they have you covered there as well, with fitness facilities and personal training on-site. In addition the Doral can assist you with nutrition, with an assortment of classes as well as having a registered dietitian and licensed nutritionist that you can talk to.

Let's not forget the golf. Five championship courses in one setting, as a golfer you aren’t going to find this much golf anywhere. You could really begin and end the conversation with “ The Blue Monster.” This course has hosted the PGA Tour for the past 40 years and if you are looking to find out what your game is really made of, this is the course for you. Of course you can go home and brag to your friends about playing “ The Blue Monster” and the Doral allows you take home a great memory. They have placed hidden cameras that shoot you off the tee and after you are done playing you can go purchase these pictures and have them framed, this is a must-have. The other four courses are certainly nothing to turn your nose up at. You have “ The Great White,” of course designed by Greg Norman. This course was rated the best new golf course of 2000 by the National Golf Foundation. “The Gold Course” was recently redesigned by Raymond Floyd, “The Silver Course” was redesigned by Jerry Pate and “The Red Course” features 14 water holes to really test your accuracy. You can take a week and try each one, play the course you think fits your game or take on the one that you think would challenge you the most, but whatever you are looking for in golf, the Doral gives it to you.

The Great White

In addition to playing some of the best courses you can imagine, if you want to play them even better, the Doral is home to the Jim McLean Golf School, which is considered to be the top golf school in the world. Whether you are looking for a single lesson, or want to spend time everyday during your visit, the Jim McLean Golf School has a wide variety of options, but whatever you choose, you can be sure that your game will improve.
