As Trump National Doral prepares for the first World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship since drastic renovations to Doral, Gary Player joined Donald Trump, Ivanka Trump and Eric Trump last week to unveil the new Gary Player Villa at the renowned Miami resort. 

Player was happy to celebrate the inauguration of his namesake villa, which is the first of eight deluxe guestroom villas to be completed and each will be named after one of the world’s most influential golfers including Bobby Jones, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Sam Snead, Ben Hogan, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson – many of which have competed on the resort’s famed Blue Monster golf course.

“Doral is one of the most important golf properties in history and it is incredible to see the amazing changes that the Trump Family has delivered in such a short period of time,” said golfing icon Gary Player. “The new Villas look magnificent and I am truly honored to have the very first bear my name.”

“We are thrilled to honor the legendary Gary Player with our first Villa dedication and celebrate his incredible career,” said Donald J. Trump, Chairman and President of The Trump Organization.

The Gary Player Villa is one of eight new deluxe guestroom villas designed by Ivanka Trump and world renowned architects WATG as part of the $250 million renovation currently underway at the iconic property. Historically, Doral been regarded as one of the most exceptional golf resorts in the world and the completion of the Gary Player Villa signifies the Trump family’s continued commitment to restoring, that surpassing, that reputation while honoring the great legends of golf. 

“Our vision for Doral from the onset has been to create an ultra-luxurious golf resort in the heart of Miami and the Gary Player Villa is a reflection of this,” said Ivanka Trump, Executive Vice President of Development and Acquisitions at The Trump Organization. “The elegant design, luxurious and spacious rooms and suites, and attention to every last detail are a few of the defining characteristics that will make Trump National Doral an unparalleled experience for our guests.”

To accent the design vision of Ivanka Trump, the Gary Player Villa at Doral features iconic images and memorabilia from the Black Knight’s career throughout the property.

Happy birthday to my dear friend, and one of sport’s all-time greats, @jacknicklaus.

Today is our 64th wedding anniversary. Vivienne has been my rock and helped me achieve success beyond my wildest dreams. It’s been a difficult year seeing her battle cancer but it’s made me realize what a special life we’ve shared. A wife like no other. I love you, Viv.

I am not one to make New Year’s resolutions, but I am resolute in my desire to play many more rounds in 2021 because I believe that golf keeps me young and is vital to my longevity! How many rounds do you hope to play this year?

@garyplayer with some New Year's inspiration for you 💬
