About MiamiThere's so much to see and do in Miami -- South Beach, the Miami Heat and Dolphins -- that golf tends to take a back seat. Still, the game is a big part of life in southeast Florida. If you aren't living in a gated golf community, chances are you want to be. Donald Trump has spent millions to revitalize Trump National Doral Miami, both the resort and its famed Blue Monster, recently redone by Gil Hanse.
