The North course at Innisbrook is similar in terrain to the Copperhead Course. At about 6,300 yards from the back tees, it is still one of the resort's most challenging courses. Known for its daunting par 3s, the North course features tight fairways, an abundance of trees and well bunkered greens, placing a premium on accuracy from tee to green.

Eleven holes on the North course 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, and strategically-placed bunkers and "waste areas."

Not a bad track!

Enjoyed the course. Nice typical flat Florida layout with a little topo to it and some challenging water holes. Staff was exceptional, and food and drink amenities were nice, albeit simple, and fairly priced.

Not worth it

Pretty disappointing experience at the North Course. I’ve playing regularly at Innisbrook this summer and it’s generally been a positive experience. In this case a 7;30 booked time becomes 7:55 then I arrive and they have us starting on the back 9 behind 4 groups that can’t seem to understand what a starting time is so the 7:55 starting time becomes 8:25 and then we proceed to play 9 in 2:40 minutes. Throw in spotty fairways and bar tee boxes and you have to ask yourself what did I pay $130 for? I quit after 9, wasn’t worth it.

Nice improvements at the North

About once a generation, it becomes necessary for a golf facility to embark on some nips and tucks to its courses. Innisbrook is in the midst of this process, with the North Course representing the third of the resort's four courses to get some TLC in the form of new greens and some other adjustments. The large, undulating surfaces here are fun to putt, but can be fearsome if you find yourself above the hole. The course is not long, but it is a challenge, with many tee shots needing to be fitted through narrow corridors through the mature trees.

The North course is terrible. Not up to the usual Innisbrook standard and the front nine should be free to play.

Grossly over priced!

This golf course was in absolutely horrible condition. The greens had a mixture of two grasses, were bumpy and difficult to putt. The fairways were thin and so were the tee boxes. Innisbrook should be embarrassed to charge $108 for this sub-standard golf course that wasn't worth $15. Had we known it was in such bad shape we never would have played it and the staff did not give us any indication of the poor condition.

Good change of pace course at the Innisbrook resort

The Innisbrook resort has 4 courses and this course is one of the 2 short courses although it still plays to a par 71. If you are here to play multiple courses, the North course is a good change of pace from the longer Island and Copperhead courses. I believe the back tees max out around 6k yards. However, with all of that said, the North course is not easy by any means. Lots of trees and dog legs to navigate here and although there are multiple par-4's that are under 300yards, going for any of these greens can lead to extremely high scores...it's a fun course but if you can only play one while you're in Palm Harbor, choose Copperhead or at least the Island course.
