The members have the dual ambition of raising money for charity and providing golf fans with the best in PGA TOUR competition.

Copperhead presents a stern test of golf odds at this years Tampa Bay Championship on March 9 – 12, 2018. One of the newer events on the PGA Tour, the 2018 Transitions Championship will take place on the Copperhead Course at the Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club in Palm Harbor, FL this March.

This PGA Tour event was founded in 2000 as the Tampa Bay Classic, and was known as the Chrysler Championship from 2003 to 2006. Now, it's made the transition to its current name and is garnering a reputation as a great event on a yearly basis.

John Huston won the inaugural event at this venue known then as The Chrysler Championship in 2000. The tournament was cancelled in 2001 due to the events of Sept. 11th. K.J. Choi won it in 2002 and Retief Goosen in 2003 with Vijay Singh in 2004, Carl Pettersson in '05'.

K.J. Choi won the tournament in '06' and Mark Calcavechia won in 2007.

Most of the 2011 field is expected to return, including Steve Stricker, Jim Furyk and Kenny Perry (all ranked in the top 13 players in the world in the latest Official World Golf Rankings) as well as recent past champions Retief Goosen (2009) and Sean O'Hair (2008).

The players with the most Transitions Championship victories are Retief Goosen in 2003 and 2009, and K.J. Choi in 2002 and 2006, and the tournament record was set by Vijay Singh in 2004 by winning with an 18-under-par total of 266.

The 18-hole "Copperhead" course at the Copperhead Golf Club facility in Lehigh Acres, Florida features 6,680 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 72. The course offers tightly cut fairways bordered by towering whispering pines, demanding accuracy as well as distance.

The course rating is 70.9 and it has a slope rating of 129 on Bermuda grass. The course opens with a par-5 (560 yards from the back tees and 450 from the forward) that is a sweeping dogleg right with a tee box perched some 50 feet above the fairway. The placement of the second shot must be accurate to set up a birdie chance here. Designed by Gordon G. Lewis, the Copperhead golf course opened in 2001.
