One Of Only Six Resorts To Receive Golf Digest's “2018 BEST GOLF RESORTS IN FLORIDA” Designation,
Tee off among champions. Not only do they consistently receive top accolades - including Golf Magazine's "Top 100 You Can Play," and Golf Digest's "Top 75 Golf Resorts in America" - this Florida golf resort also hosts an annual PGA TOUR championship each March.
Innisbrook Resort is home to four outstanding courses - all designed by the innovative and imaginative architect Lawrence Packard - including the top-rated Copperhead course, which welcomes the world's finest players each March when the PGA TOUR visits Innisbrook for the Valspar Championship.
As an Innisbrook guest, not only can you play where the world's finest professionals love to play, you can also take advantage of three other championship layouts featuring up to 70 feet of elevation change, and scenery more reminiscent of the Carolina Sandhills and Georgia foothills than the typical Florida terrain.
A favourite among PGA TOUR professionals, our Copperhead Course is the most recognizable of Innisbrook’s four Tampa, Florida courses. After all, it plays host to the world’s greatest golfers during the PGA TOUR’s annual visit to the resort for the Valspar Championship. Pine tree-lined fairways and rolling terrain define the course – a lengthy challenge for even the longest hitters at more than 7,200 yards.
Striking in beauty and challenge, the surrounding lakes and ponds are home to abundant wildlife, including fox squirrels, bald eagles, alligators, blue herons, and many other types of waterfowl. Copperhead provides the opportunity to enjoy golf the way nature intended.
The North Course at Innisbrook is similar in terrain to the Copperhead Course. At about 6,000 yards, it remains one of our most challenging courses. Known for its daunting par 3s, North features tight fairways, an abundance of trees and well-bunkered greens, placing a premium on accuracy from tee to green.
Eleven holes at North present water hazards, making club selection a critical decision when trying to break par. Recent course enhancements include additional yardage to selected par 4s and 5s, along with strategically placed bunkers and “waste bunkers".
At over 6,600 yards, South is reminiscent of a links-style design, both in terms of rolling terrain and numerous fairway bunkering. Ample waste bunkers, a total of 10 water hazards, undulating terrain, and the Gulf of Mexico breezes all combine to make South another great Innisbrook challenge that’s become a favorite of our returning guests and event planners.
With tight fairways, intimidating water hazards, abundant bunkers, and extraordinary elevation changes, the newly renovated and lengthened Island Course is considered by many to be as equally demanding as Copperhead. The extraordinarily picturesque Island has played host to numerous U.S. Open qualifiers and NCAA Championships and has also been ranked among the country’s top 50 resort courses by Golf Digest. The LPGA selected the course as the site of the ISPS Handa Legends Tour Open Championship, proving that ladies appreciate Innisbrook’s golfing experience as much as men.
The Island’s first six holes are bordered by beautiful Lake Innisbrook and lateral water hazards that require pinpointing accuracy on tee shots and approaches. The middle six holes feature rolling hills dominated by cypress and pine trees. The final third of this course boasts a mixture of holes designed to reward the bold and penalize the errant golf shot. Your round ends at a finishing hole that’s withstood the test of the world’s most skilled players and is one of the most photographed in Florida.
