Doral Golf Resort & Spa, A Marriott Resort, recently announced The Jim McLean Signature Course at Doral, formerly known as the Silver Course. Named after acclaimed golf instructor Jim McLean, a Top 100 Instructor who has operated the Jim McLean Golf School at Doral for the past 20 years, the course is McLean’s first full golf course design project, and is highlighted by three of the toughest starting holes in golf. With a recent May 2009 opening, The Jim McLean Signature Course at Doral has proven to offer a fair test of skill and shotmaking. The first three

holes on the McLean Course are consecutive par-4’s approaching nearly 500 yards each, truly defining a new golf course which will ensure a great challenge for players at all levels (make sure you warm up well – no easy starting holes here). The new course includes design features that enhance aesthetics as well as course strategy.

McLean’s most significant changes to the new par-70 layout, which offers a unique collection of par-3 holes, include widened fairways, enhanced water visuals and an increased course length from 6,557 yards to over 7,100 yards. The signature 14th hole is a par-3 highlighted by an island green, and is part of McLean’s Bermuda Triangle on the golf course’s dramatic back nine. This spectacular hole will test golfers as the tee boxes have been moved 80 yards to the right and lengthened by 30yards from the professional tees, offering a challenging approach shot to the green.

Complementing the signature hole is the 13th hole, a par-4 that demands an impressive tee shot that sets up a 220-yard carry over a lake. Rounding out the Bermuda Triangle is the 15th hole, a par-4 which is one of the most scenic holes on the golf

course and features a new professional tee added off the back of the island green 14th hole, which increases the overall distance by 50 yards. The green on the 15th hole was also enhanced with a new false front, providing golfers with an excellent look at the elevated green.

“This is truly a championship-caliber golf course, and you will not find three more challenging starting golf holes anywhere in Florida,” said McLean. “Moving the course from a par-71 to a par-70 not only makes it quite challenging from the professional tees, but it provides a very competitive and fun amateur-friendly course from the closer tees.”

 “We are thrilled to collaborate with Jim McLean on this golf course re-design, and proud to name the course in his honor,” said Darrin Helfrick, Golf General Manager at Doral Golf Resort & Spa, A Marriott Resort. “As a part of the Doral family for nearly 20 years, Jim knows every inch of our courses and understands the needs of our guests. We are confident that this redesign

will provide an enjoyable experience for players of all skill levels, while offering some of Doral’s most memorable golf holes.” Similar to the infamous Blue Monster Golf Course, the most recognizable of Doral’s five courses, and site of the World Golf Championships – CA Championship for the past two years.

The award-winning resort also features The Great White, Red and Gold Courses.

Today, the Jim McLean Golf School is recognized as the number one golf school in America.
