Featured PGA Tour Destination: Florida, Palm Harbor

The Valspar Championship 2019

Florida is a wonderland, especially in the summer. Like a Russian doll, it houses multiple worlds and has everything from gorgeous gardens to exciting theme parks. At the heart of it all is the sprawling seaside Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club located in Palm Harbor. 

Designed by celebrated architect Larry Packard in 1972, this Copperhead golf course annually plays host to the PGA Tour in the United States. The course stands out with its challenging and awe-inspiring terrain. Characterized by its dramatic elevations and majestic pines. This giant of a course is one of the longest golf courses on the East Coast, offering players an 18-hole course sized upwards of 7,200 yards.
It is now home to the iconic Valspar Championship, a golf tournament for the crème de la crème of the golf world. 

Originally named the Tampa Bay Classic, the Valspar Championship started in 2000 as a tournament for autumn and summer. Today, it is renowned for being one of the most brutal golfing tournaments in the world; and this is primarily due to the formidable course at the Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club.

Undulating more than most other Florida golf courses, the Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club in Palm Harbor offers a highly challenging game for hitters. Its narrow landing areas and demanding tees and greens are unlike any other golf course in and around Florida. The narrow landings are flanked by multiple small ponds, which offer breathtaking views of seasonal flora and fauna. 

The course starts with an uphill tee, which offers brilliant views of rolling fairways. Mid-way, the course offers gentle slopes and flatter surfaces. The final three-hole closing stretch of the course is the most challenging. Aptly named ‘The Snake Pit’ for its exacting angles, this is where most players face defeat. 
But, the one who successfully comes through to the other side has a cheque of $1,170,000 waiting near the finish line.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game.

Golfbaan Stippelberg: located 25 kilometres north-east of Eindhoven, this relatively new addition to championship golf in the Netherlands has fast become one of the country's "must play" courses.
