1. Great White Golf Course – Doral Golf Resort. Designed by former #1 golf player Greg Norman, the Great White Course (7,171-yard, par-72) has all the perfect ingredients to be our #1 golf course. Centrally located just minutes west of Miami International Airport, the Great White Course is the only golf course of its kind in the Southeastern United States that utilizes coquina — crushed shells — as the primary design element on every hole. In designing the Great White, Norman blended strategically demanding fairways with hundreds of palm trees. The Great White Course hosted the PGA TOUR’s Franklin Templeton Shoot-Out in 2000 and the Qualifying School for the PGA Latinoamerica. The Great White was rated as the best new golf course of 2000 by the National Golf Foundation. www.doralresort.com
