Innisbrook Resort & Golf Club (South course)

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1971

Innisbrook Resort & Golf Club (South course): Many would say Innisbrook's South course (formerly Highlands South and more recently Osprey South) is the easiest going of the resort's "Perfect Four" layouts. The South's opening and closing sections were inherited from the former Sandpiper course. These holes display many of the tight tree-lined and water-defended characteristics found on the front-nine of Innisbrook's North course (which was the other half of the old Sandpiper layout).

The South's middle section, from the par-3 5th to the long doglegging par-5 13th, comprises nine newer holes, opened in 1998. Here you will enjoy considerably more room from the tee, even though one or two of the holes are flanked by large residential properties. This more open and linksy environment is accompanied by rolling mounded terrain, where pot bunkers join forces with more expansive sand traps to create the principal line of defence.

Both the old and new sections of the course contain pleasant and gentle elevation changes. At the snaking par-5 2nd you'll play up and over a small ridge, while the terrific uphill par-4 11th most exuberantly showcases the layout's excellent bunkering. On this out-and-back layout, the "turn" comes at the good-length par-3 9th. Here the green and its attendant bunkering jut precariously out into a pond, water lurking on three sides of the target area.

Although overshadowed by the more renowned Copperhead and Island courses, the South is another admired member of Innisbrook's quartet of championship layouts. From its short opening par-4 through to the testing carry over water at the par-3 18th, it lays down a wonderfully absorbing and natural challenge. And arguably a bit more variety than its siblings.

Stay&Play: luxury onsite accommodation is available at Innisbrook (see Where2Stay section below).
