Innisbrook Golf Resort & Spa

Innisbrook Golf Resort & Spa in Palm Harbor, Florida, is part of the Salamander Golf Collection, an unparalleled group of Florida golf resorts which includes Reunion Resort in Orlando and Hammock Beach Resort on the Palm Coast.

At Innisbrook,  Copperhead, the most famous of the four golf courses on property, is home to the PGA TOUR’s Valspar Championship.  Copperhead golf architect Lawrence Packard says,

Copperhead is a tough golf course but it is fair. I designed it so if you hit a good shot you will be rewarded. There are no gimmicks. I wanted you to have to use every club in your bag.

With the pine tree-lined fairways, Copperhead feels more like the Carolinas than Florida. The natural beauty and challenges are the result of the surrounding lakes and ponds, home to abundant wildlife, including fox squirrels, bald eagles, alligators, blue herons, and many other types of waterfowl. The greens are TifEagle Bermuda Grass – an exceptional putting surface favored by PGA TOUR professionals.

If you can’t get a tee time on Copperhead, take advantage of the three other championship layouts, The Island Course,  the South Course, and the updated North Course. Innovative and imaginative  golf course architect, Lawrence Packard designed all four Innisbrook Resort golf courses.
