They say good things come in threes.
That’s certainly true when it comes to the Grand Golf Resorts of Florida. Three of Florida’s best-known and grandest golf resorts (Innisbrook Resort, Reunion Resort and Hammock Beach Resort) have united to create an unparalleled collection of golf and family destinations under the highly regarded Salamander Hotels & Resorts banner.
From the Gulf to the Atlantic, the collection features a total of 1,200 spacious villas and homes, numerous family-oriented activities, world-class spas and, of course, stellar golf. It all adds up to the ultimate getaway for families, couples and golfers in any season.
Each of the resorts offers Classic golf packages including luxurious accommodations and a round of golf per night of your stay. Best of all, there are no surcharges to play our championship courses.
You could start at the recently renovated Innisbrook Resort near Tampa. The resort hosts the PGA TOUR at its famed Copperhead Course, and the LPGA-supported Legends Tour Open Championship, is held annually at the equally challenging Island Course. You’ll also find 600 spacious guest suites and rooms, four restaurants and three bars, the Innisbrook Golf Academy, 11 tennis courts, the luxury Indaba Spa with 12 treatment rooms and fitness center, and six heated swimming pool complexes.
From there it’s an easy car ride to Orlando and the AAA Four-Diamond-rated Reunion Resort.This is the only location in the U.S. with golf courses designed by Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Tom Watson, and also features the exclusive ANNIKA Academy by Annika Sorenstam. Luxury condominiums, private villas and deluxe vacation homes surrounded by lush landscape are available. As well as the 82-suite Reunion Grande, an 11-story hotel, featuring a stunning lobby and bar, exquisite decor, and two restaurants – including the hip Eleven, with a rooftop pool and nightly views of the fireworks from nearby Walt Disney World.
Next on your tour is the AAA Four Diamond-rated Hammock Beach Resort set along 2.4 miles of pristine Atlantic beach on Florida’s Palm Coast. Hammock Beach is famed for its two spectacular golf courses. The Ocean Course, designed by Jack Nicklaus, is one of Florida’s highest rated and plays six holes directly along the Atlantic Ocean. Tom Watson’s Conservatory Course is one of Florida’s longest layouts. Accommodations here include a 12-story tower of ocean view luxury suites, and an intimate 20-room lodge that features spectacular ocean and golf course views.
If you aren’t familiar with Salamander Hotels & Resorts, you should be. Founded by noted businesswoman and philanthropist Sheila C. Johnson in 2005, the company is readying to open the eagerly anticipated Salamander Resort & Spa near Washington, D.C., a 340-acre equestrian-themed, ultra-luxury resort opening in 2013 and located near Washington, D.C.
