Innisbrook's Copperhead Course just completed a spectacular $4.5 million renovation in the fall of 2015, which included regrassing all the fairways, rebuilding all the bunkers and designing all 18 greens to USGA specifications. Innisbrook is now more popular than ever as it offers golfers a true modernized PGA Tour course experience. It plays host to the world's greatest golfers during the PGA TOUR's annual visit to the resort for the Valspar Championship. Tree-lined fairways and rolling terrain define the course - a lengthy challenge for even the longest hitters at more than 7,300 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 water fowl. With the fairways and greens mostly free of residences, Copperhead provides the opportunity to enjoy golf the way nature intended.
The Island Course
7063-74.1-132 6654-72.4-128 6166-70.7-121 5578-73.0-129
The first course to open at Innisbrook in 1970. Considered by some to be more demanding than the top-ranked Copperhead, Island promises breathtaking views, endless water and varying terrain throughout. Previous site of the NCAA Division I Men's Championship, the Island course is rated one of "America's Finest Resort Courses" by Golf Digest.

Innisbrook's newest layout, the Highlands South Course was created by combining a new nine holes of golf (which just opened in January, 1998), with nine existing holes. The Eagle's Watch course offers both beauty and challenge. Stretching almost 6,600 yards from the back tees, this course got its name from the majestic eagles nest overlooking the green on hole 8. Undulating terrain and elevation bring the wind into factor when making club selection. Ample waste bunkers and native grasses throughout offer a Scottish feel and numerous hazards to avoid.

Designed by E. Lawrence Packard, Highlands North is similar in terrain to Innisbrook's famed Copperhead course, but not quite as lengthy. Rolling terrain and water throughout make club selection your most important strategy on this course. The course has received extensive renovations and enhancements in 1998, offering immaculate course conditions year round. Although the course measures approximately 6,400 yards from the back tees, it plays much longer because of its long par 3's, small greens and tight fairways. Ball placement becomes critical!
