Trump National Doral makes its official debut this week, as it hosts the Cadillac Championship from March 5-9 with much fanfare by way of parties, exciting dining options, a fashion show and concert. This is definitely “not your father’s golf tourney.” Unless of course, your father is Donald Trump, which explains why Ivanka Trump is at the forefront of this landmark event.
The much buzzed-about, Cadillac Championship has made major enhancements for this year’s tournament, merging the worlds of golf, fashion, food and music to create one of South Florida’s premiere social events.
The celebrations begin with a VIP kick-off party at Hyde Beach at the SLS Hotel on Tuesday, March 4, where players and VIPs will gather to socialize and dance to music by Miami Heat DJ, DJ Irie.
Other highlights include a Carolina Herrera fashion show hosted by Ivanka Trump and a live concert performance by Gym Class Heroes’ front man and solo star, Travie McCoy. Hungry golf fans will have a slew of dining options including food by seven of South Florida’s top food trucks in the Food Truck Fairway, located adjacent to the Blue Monster Village and the Cadillac Performance center near the first tee; the new BLT Prime in Trump National Doral’s clubhouse (the sister restaurant to the acclaimed BLT in the Betsy Hotel on South Beach); an Eating House pop-up by celebrity chef Giorgio Rapicavoli, located at the all-new Escalade Lounge hospitality venue on the 16th hole; Latin flavors from Versailles, located between the 1st tee and the 18th green; and scrumptious burgers from Shula Burger, served throughout the course at concession areas.
Guests will also stay well-hydrated at a multitude of bars and lounges throughout the property. The Grey Goose 19th Hole Lounge, located behind the 9th tee, will feature the exclusive Blue Monster Signature Cocktail. Other Grey Goose offerings will be poured in the Escalade Lounge, on the patio and throughout the clubhouse. Additionally, there will be a Beringer Wine Bar, located outside the Blue Monster Village, a Michelob ULTRA Beer Garden and the frozen Island Whip on the beach near the third tee and a Moët & Chandon Champagne Bar, located behind the 9th green which will also serve stone crabs and sushi.
Because no Miami social event would be complete without music and fashion, the Cadillac Championship has rounded up DJ Irie to spin at the kick-off party on Tuesday, March 4 and before and after the elegant fashion show on Friday, March 7, dubbed “Fashion Friday” hosted by Ivanka Trump, wherein world-known designer Carolina Herrera will showcase her collection.
On Saturday, March 8, Gym Class Heroes’ frontman and solo star Travie McCoy will headline a concert, in the Blue Monster Village, following the completion of the tournament’s third round. Pop star Emin, will open for McCoy.
Access to both the Carolina Herrera fashion show and Travie McCoy concert is complimentary to all Friday and Saturday tournament ticket holders, respectively, with additional VIP opportunities available for purchase.
