Winning 10-under par total, plus an additional 10 percent savings to match the 10-under Copperhead Course record, means substantial savings
INNISBROOK, FL – Kevin Streelman’s winning total of 10-under par at the PGA TOUR’s Tampa Bay Championship – played at Innisbrook, a Salamander Golf & Spa Resort – has delivered a 20 percent discount for future guests of the Grand Golf Resorts of Florida who book a Preferred Golf Package starting on the Tuesday after the tournament – March 19.
The 20 percent savings matches Streelman’s winning total to par on the famed Copperhead Course, plus an additional 10 percent to match Padraig Harrington’s 10-under course record, shot at last year’s tournament.
Ranked as one of the top 10 courses on the PGA TOUR by the professional themselves, players consistently raved about the quality and conditioning of the Copperhead Course and its challenging nature. But, Streelman persevered and did not bogey any of his last 37 holes to win his first PGA TOUR event after 153 attempts.
The Grand Golf Resorts of Florida collection is the most powerful new collection of golf resorts in the Sunshine State. It includes Innisbrook Resort in Tampa Bay, Reunion Resort in Orlando and Hammock Beach Resort in Palm Coast, and was created and is managed by Salamander Hotels & Resorts. Its nine golf courses were designed by Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson, Arnold Palmer and Larry Packard, while six of the layouts have hosted professional tournaments, including those on the PGA TOUR, LPGA Tour, Champions Tour and Legends Tour.
The Preferred Golf Package includes:
  • Spacious deluxe accommodations
  • One round of golf per night of stay from check-in until check-out PLUS an extra bonus round, based on availability
  • Full breakfast daily
  • $20 Retail credit to be used in any pro shop
  • Advanced starting times at time of reservation
  • Unlimited use of practice facilities
  • Daily one-hour golf clinic
  • Club storage and locker room service
  • Welcome gift
  • Unlimited fitness center access
Reservations must be made via phone by calling 855-808-9203 for Innisbrook, or 855-803-4603 for Reunion or Hammock Beach. Bookings must be made by April 15, 2013, and the discount is valid for stays until August 31, 2013. This offer is not applicable to groups or previously booked reservations. For additional information, visit and choose Innisbrook, Reunion or Hammock Beach resorts.
