Miami, FL (Sports Network) - The legendary Blue Monster course at Doral Golf and Spa is scheduled to be lengthened by 166 yards, adding yardage to five of the course's holes. Home to the PGA Tour's Ford Championship, the Blue Course is scheduled to have the process completed by December.

"The new changes at Doral will keep the Blue Monster at the top end of all tour courses and I'm quite sure that the lengthening of hole No. 18 will make this, once again, the toughest finishing hole on the PGA Tour," said golf instructor Jim McLean, who has Doral Golf Resort and Spa as the headquarters of the Jim McLean Golf School.

The Blue Monster is currently 7,125 yards long from the tournament tees. The holes that will be lengthened include the third, eighth, 11th, 14th and 18th.

Doral has been the home to a PGA Tour event for over 40 years. This past season, defeated in a playoff at the Ford Championship.
