For Immediate Release

Trump National Doral Miami Welcomes The Rick Smith Golf Performance Center

                                                                                                South Florida’s premier golf resort partners with leading golf school.

MIAMI, FL (October 13, 2017) Trump® National Doral Miami today announced a new partnership with the Rick Smith Golf Performance Center. Recognized as one of the top golf performance centers in the U.S., Smith’s elite team will bring world-class instruction to South Florida’s premier golf destination. Serving golfers of all abilities, including resort guests, club members and the public, the center will provide a wide range of offerings: private lessons, multi-day golf schools, small group clinics, on-course playing lessons, video analysis and juniors programming. The Rick Smith Golf Performance Center will move into the former site of the Jim McLean Golf School in January 2018.

Rick Smith has achieved great success in the golf industry as a teacher, designer and communicator. His skills as a great teacher have afforded Smith the opportunity to coach some of the most accomplished golfers in the world who have collectively won eight major golf championships, including Phil Mickelson, Lee Janzen, Rocco Mediate and Jack Nicklaus. Rick has also hosted his own golf instructional television programs and done color commentary, which have aired on the Golf Channel, ESPN, TSN and FOX Sports.

“I am delighted to welcome Rick and his incredible team to Trump Doral,” said Executive Vice President Eric Trump. “Rick is an exceptional talent, who coaches the most elite and well-known players in the world, and I am truly honored to welcome him to this world-class property.”

“In my career, I have been fortunate to travel and teach around the world. The opportunity to call Trump National Doral the home of my flagship performance center is an honor,” said Smith. “My staff and I will take this facility to the next level with world-class service and instructional offerings.”

“Rick and his staff are the ideal fit for our vision: to be the world’s pre-eminent golf resort,” said Trump National Doral Golf General Manager Darrin Helfrick. “Their award-winning instruction perfectly complements our company mission: ‘Never Settle.’”

Home to the iconic Blue Monster, the Red Tiger, the Golden Palm and the Silver Fox, Trump National Doral boasts some of the game’s most challenging courses while offering picturesque views of South Florida. Rounding out the resort’s golf offerings are a state-of-the-art LED practice facility for both day and evening use, a cutting-edge True Spec custom club-fitting lab, a 7,000-square-foot golf shop and a private members’ clubhouse.
