The lower the winning score at the Transitions Championship, the higher the resort discount
INNISBROOK, FL – This year’s Transitions Championship at Innisbrook, a Salamander Golf & Spa Resort, could result in big savings for guests. The Tampa Bay/St. Petersburg area resort is offering a discount to match the winning score to par on its famed Copperhead Course, rated by professionals as the finest Florida course on the PGA TOUR.
Last year’s tournament was won at 15-under par by Gary Woodland. A similar score at this year’s event, being played March 15-18, will provide a 15 percent discount on a future overnight stay.
All reservations made with this offer will also be entered into a drawing to win a two-night stay at the new Grand Golf Resorts of Florida collection, which includes Innisbrook, Reunion Resort in Orlando and Hammock Beach in Palm Coast. The group is managed by Salamander Hotels & Resorts, founded by Sheila C. Johnson.
To make Innisbrook reservations after the trophy presentation, call 800-492-6899.
