Four Championship Courses, One Amazing Experience The newly renovated Innisbrook is simply one of America’s most celebrated Florida golf resorts. Not only do we consistently receive top accolades – including Golf Magazine’s “Top 100 You Can Play,” and Golf Digest’s “Top 75 Golf Resorts in America” – our Clearwater golf resort also host an annual PGA Tour championship and the LPGA Legend Tour’s first major. Our Tampa golf resort is home to four outstanding layouts – 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 Transitions 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 sand hills and Georgia foothills than the typical Florida terrain.
