Trump National Doral Miami is a golf resort in the southeastern United States, located in Doral, Florida. It was founded by real estate pioneer Alfred Kaskel in 1962, with the name "Doral" coming from an amalgamation of the first names of Kaskel and his wife, Doris. It currently has 90 holes of golf and its championship course is the Blue Monster at Doral.
Trump National Doral Miami is today part of the Trump Organization. It was reportedly purchased for $150 million in 2011. In 2012, Trump bought the resort in South Florida out of bankruptcy for $150 million. The 800-acre property includes five golf courses, 700 hotel rooms, has a meeting and conference space, a 50,000-square-foot spa and an extensive retail component. Real estate experts[who?] estimate current[when?] value of the land alone at Doral could exceed $1 billion. Trump has a $125 million mortgage on the property. Since 2012, the Trump Organization has spent over $250 million in renovations.
In 2009, the Pritikin Longevity Center moved its entire operation from Aventura, Florida to the campus of Trump National Doral Miami. The Pritikin facilities (medical, gym, exercise rooms, kitchen, dining room, lecture rooms, and offices) occupy parts of the spa building. Pritikin guests normally stay in the hotel suites (in a building next to the spa building) or in Lodges 2 and 3.
An episode of Celebrity Apprentice airing on January 26, 2015 featured the resort.
