There’s a lot more to the Copperhead at Innisbrook Resort near Tampa, Florida, than a clever marketing moniker. Holes 16, 17 and 18 might be known as the Snake Pit – and we’ll all hear that term plenty of times on televised coverage this week – but each of the holes on this 7,340-yard layout can be a killer.
Narrow, tree-lined fairways. Tall rough. Surprisingly rolling terrain for the Sunshine State. Challenging greens. Call the finishing trio what you want, but the whole course is a great test for the PGA Tour players in this week’s Valspar Championship in Palm Harbor, Florida. Built in 1974 by Larry Packard and Jerry Pate, the Copperhead can require patience and precision as much as power. The course ranks No. 9 in Florida on Golfweek’s Best Courses You Can Play list for public-access tracks.
