Trump Continues to Mix it up at Doral

New Trump fountain at Doral Resort in Miami
Donald Trump wasted no time installing his signature fountain at Doral Resort in Miami. Mr. Trump purchased Doral back in February for $150 million dollars and started renovations to the entire property almost immediately. Team Trump has installed two new irrigation systems on the Red and Gold courses, purchased over $4 million dollars of turf equipment, hired a new team of turf professionals to manage the place, and reportedly spent $150,000 on this new fountain.

Here is a picture of the old fountain behind the putting green at Doral. This fountain was first built for the 1964 World’s Fair in New York. The former Doral owners, Al and Doris Kaskel, bought the famous fountain, shipped it to Miami and installed it for the world to see. If you look closely in this picture you can see a bust of Al Kaskel. The Kaskel’s travelled around the world purchasing art work and statues. They spread these treasures around the Doral property for their guests to enjoy. Today many of these art works are gone. I hope Mr. Trump brings them back and keeps some of the Doral history.

Trump will tackle the Blue Monster, with golf course designer Gil Hanse, after the 2013 PGA TOUR World Golf Championship. Many of the common areas and hotel rooms are receiving a face lift as we speak. I can’t wait to see these much needed improvements to this historical resort over the next year.
