TAMPA BAY, Florida – The travel options are plentiful for snowbirds scanning the Internet for the best deals and best places to visit in the next three months, and if there’s one common element among avid golfers it’s to book a destination to play where the pros play.
With that requirement in mind we have the answer: Innisbrook Resort.
Located 30 minutes from Tampa International Airport, the resort features 72 holes of championship golf, spacious condo-style guest suites and rooms, four restaurants and three bars, the Innisbrook Golf Institute, 11 tennis courts, the Salamander Spa and state-of-the-art Fitness Center, six heated swimming pool complexes, a nature preserve, and three conference halls with 100,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting space.
And, every March around St. Patty’s Day (March 17) Innisbrook hosts the PGA TOUR’s Valspar Championship at its famed Copperhead Course.
The good news from Innisbrook is that the resort has just finished a comprehensive remodeling of its spacious guest accommodations, just in time to start the 2020 golf season
The resort is completing extensive upgrades to the interior of its executive-, one- and two-bedroom condo-style suites to feature an appealing and modern look. Each unit will be completely refreshed to receive all new furniture, furnishings, flooring, stainless-steel appliances, quartz counters, cabinets, lighting, draperies and more. The resort’s condo-style accommodations feature complete kitchens and private balconies overlooking the golf courses and rolling landscape.
“Innisbrook has been a revered destination for golfers, families and conference groups for nearly 50 years, and the upgrades made to our accommodations have already received rave reviews,” said Managing Director Mike Williams. “These improvements are just another testament to our commitment to delivering a superior guest experience.”
Innisbrook’s suites, which are located in low-rise lodge buildings, have retained their unique exterior design. They are intended to 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 is preparing to celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2020. After it opened in 1970, the Tampa Bay area property quickly 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 the past 30 years – currently called the Valspar Championship, and the resort and the tournament have never been more popular.
Guests can experience the freshly remodeled suites through a variety of offers including select value date that are perfect for both the leisure and business traveler, golf packages, or one of the resort’s meeting package specials for groups and special events.
