Innisbrook Resort Gets Facelift 1

Home of the Valspar Championship Celebrates 50 Years

Innisbrook Resort Features the Copperhead Course

Innisbrook Resort, home of the Valspar Championship, has finished a comprehensive remodeling of its guest accommodations.

Upgrades were completed to the interiors of its executive-, one- and two-bedroom condo-style suites with new furniture, furnishings, flooring, stainless-steel appliances, quartz counters, cabinets, lighting and draperies. All accommodations feature complete kitchens and private balconies overlooking the golf courses and woodland.

Innisbrooks rooms have been updated for a fresh, modern look.

Located northeast of Tampa in Palm Harbor, Fla., “Innisbrook Resort has been a destination for golfers, families and conference groups for nearly 50 years.

“The upgrades made to our accommodations have already received rave reviews,” Managing Director Mike Williams said. “These improvements are just another testament to our commitment to delivering a superior guest experience.”

Innisbrook’s suites, located in low-rise lodge buildings, have retained their unique exterior design which helps them blend into the property’s 900 wooded acres through the use of a “back-to-nature” style of architecture, and the buildings deliberately sit below the treetops to offer a sense of seclusion for the guest.

Innisbrook Resort, a Salamander Resorts property, is preparing to celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2020. After it opened in 1970, the Tampa Bay area property vaulted into the echelons of the country’s finest golf resorts, and has remained there ever since. The resort has also hosted a nationally televised PGA Tour event on its Copperhead Course for 30 years.

Salamander also owns Reunion Resort & Golf Club southeast of Orlando.
