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 course renovations at Trump National Doral. Due to the talents of the Gil Hanse design team, the Red Tiger 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 gives it its distinctive South Florida personality. While the goal of every tee shot should be to take advantage of the gently contoured fairways, the undulation of the small scaled greens requires accurate shotmaking.
