Regarding the history of (El) Doral, here's the following: "In the late 1950s, real estate pioneer Doris and Alfred Kaskel purchased 2,400 acres of swampland between NW 36 Street and NW 74 Street and from NW 79 Avenue to NW 117 Avenue for about $49,000 with the intention of building a golf course and hotel. In 1962, the Kaskel's dream came true when they opened a hotel and country club that featured the Blue, Red and Par 3 golf courses. They named it Doral - a combination of Doris and Alfred. In the second year of operation, the Kaskels hosted the first Doral Open Invitational, Florida's major PGA event. After ownership changed through the years, Donald Trump bought the Club in 2012 for $150 million and its name changed to Trump National Doral Golf Club.

By the early 1980s, Doral experienced its first residential growth spurt, when Alfred's and Doris' grandson Bill developed Doral Estates, followed by a joint venture with Lennar to build Doral Park (Country Club). Both communities were named after the hotel, a trend that was to be repeated many more times.

Incorporation began in earnest in 1995 with the realization that residents were paying a very high price for services received; they wanted more services at a reasonable price. The County met the first attempt at incorporation with a year's deferral. Doral had been classified as a "donor community," meaning that the taxes paid were more than the cost of operations. With the deferral, incorporation efforts intensified even more.

In 1996, the first election of the Community Council was held. The City of Doral elected its first Mayor, as his replacement to the Community Council: Juan Carlos Bermúdez. At the time, Bermudez was president of One Doral, a Community-based Action Coalition (civic organization, non-profit) formed to counteract the perceived influence of the West Dade Federation of Homeowners Association, Inc. (WDFHA) (established in 1989) on the Council. The Miami Herald reported that Bermudez intended to create a transparent government in Doral by bringing a balance to the table. One Doral and the West Dade Federation were instrumental in the incorporation process, as well the Doral Community Coalition.

In January 2003, following a seven year battle, 85% of the voters in Doral voted in favor of incorporation."
