Whether you’re looking to simply warm-up prior to your round or trying to solve a nagging hook or slice, consider visiting the main practice area, located near the Osprey Clubhouse. This 10-acre practice and instruction facility is available to guests prior to playing a round at the Island, North, or South courses, and it also serves as the primary practice spot for players without a tee time.

The main practice facility boasts 100% grass tees as well as putting, sand bunker, and chipping areas. And, as part of our service standard, our Golf Club Services staff will ensure that your clubs will be awaiting your arrival whether it is at the practice tee or on the first tee. Complete golf clinics, conducted daily by our professionals, are also available to all resort guests. After all, it’s what we do to make a visit to Innisbrook a memorable experience.

For golfers who are dedicated to improving their game, the award-winning Innisbrook Golf Institute provides the perfect setting for students to concentrate and focus. Founded more than 30 years ago and led by Director of Instruction, Dawn Mercer, the Innisbrook Golf Institute is ranked in the Top 25 of all golf schools nationally by Golf Magazine.

Focused on “back-to-basics” philosophies, our award-winning male and female instructional staff works with each student on their mechanics and techniques – from short game to full swing – as well as offering an evaluation of equipment, golf ball evaluation/selection, proper stretching and strengthening exercises to develop a stronger golf swing and a better mental approach to the game.

By taking advantage of our state-of-the-art instruction techniques, video and computer swing and putting analysis, equipment, and methods, you’ll find your game.
