Designer Hanse showcases Trump National Miami remodel

Finish the entire golf course and have it grown in for next year's tournament. So we had to move quickly. He provided us with everything we needed. And you know, when we looked at the plans a little bit later, his vision was really--it inspired a lot of the major changes on the golf course . He has got a great sense of scale. That's for sure. -When you're working on a course in which you know that tour players are going to be coming there every year, do you seek out advice or input from tour players? -We do. Yeah, we actually--we had two sort of workshops. They were unfortunately lightly attended, but we did have a few golf pros coming. I think some pros are very interested in architecture and others are not. I mean, last year, we had Justin Rhodes come and walk the golf course with Jim Wagner, spent a lot of time out there looking at it. Obviously very sharp, very interested in architecture. The year before that, we sat down with Phil Mickelson , so he sat down, and Phil's very interested in design, and he has got a great mind for it. So we offer it very frequently. The players either, you know, are just happy to come and play the golf course but they--the other guy who we've talked to two years ago was Geoff Ogilvy . And I mean, Geoff's got a great sense for design and really great understanding of it. So I think--we look for their input; sometimes we get it, sometimes we get it after the fact, which we don't sometimes like. -You talked to a lot of the brainiacs on tour, as we affectionately call them. These are the guys who were great thinkers when it comes to the game of golf, especially Geoff Ogilvy , who I believe flies under the radar. It is also a risk though to talk too many tour players because I am sure that you get a lot of feedback, and you don't want to disrupt your intention or your plans with what you are doing with Doral. So you mentioned the three phases that you went through-- -Right. -restoration, renovation, remodel. It really has at one point been all of those things at Doral. Can you define the difference of those words, what they mean to you-- -Sure. -and what Doral ultimately has become? -Well, I think, you know, when you--when you have a historically important golf course like Doral has been on tour and the architect--the original architect like Dick Wilson, you want to study and understand what they
