Type Resort
A longtime favorite among PGA Tour pros, Innisbrook's Copperhead course is the most recognizable of the resort's four courses. After all, it plays host to the world's greatest golfers during the tour's visit to the resort each spring. Paul Azinger, a 12-time winner on the PGA Tour and Captain of the 2008 U.S. Ryder Cup Team, has called Copperhead "the best course we play on tour." Meanwhile, Stewart Cink, a four-time PGA Tour winner and two-time Ryder Cup Team member said, "This course could host a U.S. Open." Tree-lined fairways and rolling terrain define Innisbrook's most famed course - a lengthy challenge for even the longest hitters at more than 7,200 yards. Striking in beauty and challenge, Copperhead is characteristic of a Carolina layout with dramatic elevation changes and tall, stately pines. Here you will find a truly breathtaking experience from tee to green.

Pro Am Gloriousness

I had the opportunity to play the course on the Monday of the Valspar, and to say it was anything less than spectacular would be a sin. Tough yet fair, it was a course that rewards well played approach shots and I recommend staying under the hole whenever possible. You don’t have to pull driver, so think your way around the course and you can score. Enjoy!

Easy to see why the pros love it

I always find it a treat to play courses that host big-time golf tournaments, and for putting oneself in the shoes of the best golfers in the world, there are few more fitting venues than the Copperhead. It is the consummate "ball-striker's paradise," where a significant mix of power and accuracy are essential for survival. If you can hit fairways and greens here, you can score a little bit, but with the narrow landing areas and tough rough, any looks at birdie will have been hard earned. It's a great diagnostic for any golfer's game.

Expensive But Worth It

Our group of 8 guys play the Copperhead Course each fall as part of a week of golf. Copperhead remains on our list of "must play" courses. The day before we played Copperhead, we played the Island Course at Innisbrook. People say the two courses are comparable. They are alike in difficulty. Neither course is easy. The Island Course is the more difficult of the two. Conditions between the two courses varies greatly. Copperhead is in exceptional condition. From tees to the greens, we were not disappointed. The bunkers were raked, the greens were fast, and the fairways were wonderful. The ball sat up nicely in the fairways. Conditions at the Island Course were much different. The greens were just as nice as Copperhead's. After that, the changes were quite appearant. The grass on the tees was more sparse. The fairways were brown and had barren areas. The bunkers were not raked. If you're going to spend big dollars to play Innisbrook, play Copperhead.

Couldn't ask for more

Darrell in the pro shop and Fred the starter were extremely accommodating. They provided excellent customer service. I really had a great experience and look forward to returning in the future. Keep up the good work.

Not What I Expected

First of all let me say right up front, we had a great time and the service was over the top. Our room was perfect, quiet, and overlooked the Island Course. However the conditions of the Copperhead Course was far less than I expected. The greens were hard, and the green surrounds were bare in areas and overgrown on others. The rough was deep in com areas and others not as much. Many weeds and the bunkers were very bad, maybe not as bad as the Island Course, but bad. I thought the course conditions would be pristine, but not so, just the average course. Certainly nothing special.

Copperhead Best in Tampa Area that You can Play

As they say, "play where the pros play." If it wasn't for its place in the schedule they would probably get all the best players as this is and excellent challenging course. Often forget that you are in south FLA with the pines, lakes and elevation changes. This course challenges every part of your game. You need all the shots as well some strategy. Conditioning has been an issue the last few years as the reseeded to whole course and had some bad breaks with the weather. But things should be much improved this season and going forward. Can't wait to get back there.

Better than ever and ready for the PGA Tour

Having never played this course before a recent restoration that included new greens, new irrigation and bunker renovations, I really can't compare it to the old. But I can certainly understand why the PGA Tour players list this among their favorite courses. It rewards good shot-making, plain and simple. And the design, though it's less than 50 years old, is certainly classic. The finishing stretch -- the Snakepit -- is certainly memorable and challenging. And with a a few hills, bends and strategically placed water hazards, it never gets boring.

Must-Play Course and the best of the Innisbrook resort courses!

Copperhead recently re-opened after a full restoration of the course and it did not disappoint. The course layout is almost exactly the same but the course is in pristine condition right now. The greens are a bit slow on some holes but thats normal as they are new and its hard to cut down as they come in. The course itself is challenging but very fair. The greens are fairly large so GIR isn't as relative. The scenery surrounding the course is pretty amazing as its surprisingly hilly and the elevation changes/tall pines can make it feel like the carolinas which is nice in a very flat area of florida. The practice area and driving range has plenty of space to fine-tune your game. The copperhead course is the best course of the Innisbrook resort and is a must-play when in the Tampa/Palm Harbor area especially considering its an annual PGA Tour stop. The other courses here are nice but this is the one you should look forward to playing!

Snake Pit Awaits

This is a great golf course. Be ready for deep rough and an excellent layout. Just make sure you check the weather.....We didn't have rain for 4 days prior to our round and the course was still we and mushy in many areas. It does not drain well!!!
