    Trump National Doral's Blue Course has hosted the PGA TOUR for more than a half-century. Competitors at this year's World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship won't see the same old Doral when they arrive in South Florida, though. The Blue Course underwent a dramatic renovation immediately after the 2013 Cadillac, won by Tiger Woods. Famed golf course architect Gil Hanse, who also is designing the course for the 2016 Olympics, was behind the changes. Many holes, such as the par-5 first hole and Nos. 15 and 16, underwent dramatic changes. One hole remained virtually untouched: the par-4 18th, one of the TOUR's most famous finishing holes.

    Hanse strives to build golf courses that are "simple and elegant in appearance, yet sophisticated in strategy and interest," he wrote on his website. His philosophy will be on full display at the Cadillac Championship. Read below for his hole-by-hole description of the new Blue Course:
