Innisbrook, A Salamander Golf & Spa Resort

Innisbrook, Florida

By Roger Cox, Editor

Part of this 1,000-acre property was originally an orange and grapefruit grove. A few trees survive, including some dotting the outskirts of the tennis complex, though today the predominant features are golf fairways and neatly manicured landscape with the occasional wetland or native forest. Accommodations have been scattered though a series of lodges, with views of golf courses or the resort grounds and situated to be close to swimming pools, dining, recreation, spa, and conference center, with a free on-property shuttle to stitch everything together.
