      Course Overview

      The Doral Golf Resort & Spa was founded in 1962 by real estate pioneer Alfred Kaskel. The Doral name came from an amalgamation of the first names of Kaskel and his wife, Doris. Today, the resort features five golf courses, with the “Blue Monster” being the most well known. The original Dick Wilson design opened in 1961 and was the longtime host site of the Doral Open on the PGA Tour from 1962-2006. Since 2007, it has been the site of the World Golf Championship-Cadillac Championship. In 2009, the course joined the PGA Tour’s Tournament Players Club network of courses and it was rebranded as the TPC Blue Monster at Doral.

      Two other courses at the resort have hosted major events. The Gold Course was used for the 1999 PGA Tour’s Qualifying Tournament and the Red Course hosted the Office Depot event on the LPGA Tour in 2000.
