Copperhead Classic 2017
The 2017 Regional Championship schedule will kick off at Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club with the sixth annual Copperhead Classic. The 2016 Copperhead Classic welcomed back 10 of the previous fifteen champions, but only three were able to defend their title – Jessy Huebner, Bailey Shoemaker and Madison Hewlett.
The resort offers easy beach access, bike rentals and many other fun family activities!
A favorite among PGA TOUR professionals, the Copperhead Course is the most recognizable of Innisbrook’s four Tampa, Florida, courses. After all, it plays host to the world’s greatest golfers during the PGA TOUR’s annual visit to the resort for the Valspar Championship. USKG alumni, Lee McCoy placed 4th in the 2016 Valspar Championship as an amateur.
The North Course is similar in terrain to the Copperhead Course. Known for its daunting par 3s, North features tight fairways, an abundance of trees and well-bunkered greens, placing a premium on accuracy. Eleven holes at North present water hazards, making club selection a critical decision when trying to break par.
The South Course is reminiscent of a links-style design, both in terms of rolling terrain and numerous fairway bunkering. Ample waste bunkers, 10 water hazards, undulating terrain, and the Gulf of Mexico breezes all combine to make South another great Innisbrook challenge that’s become a favorite of our Regional Championship contenders.
