You’ll find the Innisbrook Resort, a Salamander Golf & Spa Resort; Tampa, FL nestled on 900 wooded acres of rolling hills in the St. Petersburg/Clearwater area. The Innisbrook Resort is world-renowned for its championship golf, and rightly so, because there are few grand resorts that can boast four – that’s right, four – championship layouts, 72 holes that will provide you with the golf vacation of a lifetime, and you’ll never need to leave the property; Amazing: the North Course, the South Course, the Island Course, and finally, the famous Copperhead Course, home to the PGA TOUR’s annual Valspar Championship.

  Constantly ranked among the best of the best of what I have labeled THE GRAND RESORTS, Innisbrook continues to garner top accolades such as Golf Digest’s “Top 75 Golf Resorts in America” and Golf Magazine’s “Top 100 You Can Play,”

The four Innisbrook Golf Resort layouts were all designed by the innovative and imaginative Lawrence “Larry” Packard. A favorite among PGA TOUR professionals, the Copperhead Course recently underwent a six-month restorative enhancement. This 7,340-yard course is a lengthy challenge for even the longest hitters. The Island Course features six holes bordered by beautiful Lake Innisbrook and lateral water hazards that require pinpoint accuracy on tee shots and approaches.

Similar in terrain to the Copperhead Course, but with a personality all its own, the North Course is known for its daunting par 3s, well-bunkered greens and recent course enhancements including additional yardage to selected par 4s and 5s. The par 71 South Course is one of those so-called links-style designs and does indeed have more than its fair share of rolling hills and breezes sweeping in from the Gulf of Mexico, just minutes away from Innisbrook Golf Resort, thus it has become a favorite among the resorts golfing guests.

Apart from the impressive greens, the property boasts “six monstrous pools, multiple bars and restaurants, the 18,000 sq. ft. Salamander Spa and shuttle access to Honeymoon Island Beach, one of the Gulf Coast’s most romantic shores. For more information, visit the Innisbrook Website.

Okay, but isn’t it expensive to stay and play Innisbrook? NO, it’s not, not with these great packages on offer”
