This beautiful 18-hole layout features tight fairways and well-bunkered greens, placing a costly premium on accuracy from tee to green. Recent course improvements include longer, more challenging par-4s and -5s with added bunkers and waste areas to create greater penalties throughout for those errant approach shots. This course is known for its daunting par-3s. "This is known as a shotmaker's course," says Tony Arielly. "There's definitely a premium on accuracy and not so much on distance." Also designed by Lawrence Packard, the Highlands North at Westin Innisbrook is similar in terrain to the Copperhead Course, but not in length. Rolling fairways and water throughout make club selection your most important strategy on this course. About 6,600 yards from the back tees, this course is known for its long par-3s and small greens. Ball placement becomes critical. One of the most scenic holes here is No. 5, a dogleg-right par-4 (410 yards from the back tees and 300 from the forward) that curves around the water. Your second shot has to take you onto an island green. "Whenever you say the words 'island green,' it puts fear into the heart of golfers," says Arielly. "On top of it all, you can't see the island green from the tee because this is a pretty sharp dogleg. You have to hit down a chute of trees off the tee. If you go too far right, you're in the water." Approximate Yardages for the 54 Hole Challenger at Innisbrook are as follows: Boys 10U: 4,864: Girls 13U: 4,955; Boys 11-13/Girls 14-18: 5,580; Boys 14-15/Boys 16-18: 6,325.
