Change Would Do You Good: Trump Plans Drastic Modifications For TPC Blue Monster
Published March 6, 2013
TIME FOR AN UPGRADE: Golf Channel's Todd Lewis said Doral is a "great course in a sense, but it really is very old and tired and probably not up to snuff in terms of the way the players are hitting the balls now.” Donald Trump said the course is going to change from “not fan-friendly to extremely fan-friendly." Lewis said the planned renovations of course will “alter every hole on this golf course” (“Golf Central,” Golf Channel, 3/5). Golf Channel’s Matt Ginella said it "should be exciting to see what the end result is here” following the $200M renovations. Ginella: “Hopefully this is more Hanse-heavy in the renovation and less Donald Trump. I don’t want any of the waterfalls and stuff like that.” Golf Channel’s Kelly Tilghman said, “It needs a makeover simply because I think golf courses need more than one or two memorable holes” ("Morning Drive," Golf Channel, 3/6).
