12 Ways to Celebrate National Golf Month with Salamander Collection
Play a PGA TOUR Course
At Innisbrook Resort, the legendary Copperhead Course – home of the PGA TOUR’s annual Valspar Championship — has easily become a bucket list course for golfers. Imagine yourself hitting from the fairways graced by some of the world’s finest golf professionals and taking on the Snake Pit, one of the toughest finishing holes on the PGA TOUR. Defined by tree‑lined fairways and rolling terrain, Copperhead tests players with its many uphill and downhill shots, significant elevation changes, and a variety of water‑protected approach shots. Put your skills to the test with our complex courses full of diverse scenery and unique layouts not typical of Florida.

Take a Snake Pit Selfie
Only the brave dare to enter the Snake Pit at Innisbrook Resort! Located on the 16th tee of the Copperhead Golf Course, home of the PGA TOUR’s Valspar Championship, the larger than life “Striker” the snake awaits. The cart path up the hill to the left of the 14th green will lead to the statue making it an easy walk from the Osprey Clubhouse.
