PALM HARBOR — A few months ago, Innisbrook Managing Director Mike Williams revealed some of the projects the resort was undergoing, including remodeling all 300 guest rooms as well as a complete overhaul of the greens on two of the resort's championship level courses.

Roughly a year after the renovation of the North Course greens, Williams and other Innisbrook officials recently held a ceremony to commemorate the reopening of the south course following a six-month renovation of the putting surface on all 18 greens as well as other work.

"We couldn't be more excited to stand here today, knowing we now offer four courses with the same top-tier putting experience that is preferred by the amazing players we watch all season long on the PGA Tour," Williams told the crowd that included Tarpon Springs Mayor Chris Alahouzos and City Commissioners Rea Sieber and Susan Kikta.

"These improvements further underscore the investment and commitment to excellence we have from owner Sheila Johnson and Salamander Hotels & Resorts."

Innisbrook's director of golf, Bobby Barnes, detailed the work that was performed on the South Course, which included conditioning of the bunkers, clearing all storm canals, tree trimming and pruning to reduce shading and general maintenance.

"We're truly blessed to have four championship golf courses here at Innisbrook," Barnes said, adding, "the south course is our newest and most user-friendly course."
