Return of Tiger Woods? Doral Golf Resort & Spa offers ringside rooms and seats
You might not be able to play the famed Blue Monster course during this particular stay at Doral Golf Resort & Spa. Seems Tiger Woods likely will have a tee time that weekend while trying to win another World Golf Championships – CA Championship title that weekend.
But you certainly can have a front row seat to watch one of the top PGA Tour events March 12-15, when the Miami resort is offering a 15% discount on its tournament golf packages. The bargains start at $349 per night ($399 for double occupancy) and include daily tickets that give you full access to the clubhouse, grounds and amenities. As a guest, you could also play the resort’s other layouts (Gold course, the Great White course, the Red course, and Silver course.
What makes this one of the better golf deals is timing and, well, Woods. Positioned perfectly at the end of the Florida swing and three weeks before the Masters, the WGC–CA Championship has Woods in the sweet spot of his comeback from knee surgery.
Woods is expected to play because he’ll need to be at Doral Golf Resort & Spa as a tune-up for Augusta National and the Masters, which he has said is a priority for his 2009 return to the PGA Tour. He lives in Isleworth, a ritzy development near Orlando, meaning he won’t be playing that far from home.
Also: Woods’ wife, Elin, gave birth to their second child, Charlie Axel Woods, on Feb. 8. So, Tiger doesn’t have the distraction of being an expecting father as he plans his near-term schedule.
And Woods enjoys winning on the Blue Monster, having outdueled Phil Mickelson and David Toms among his three victories on this course.
