The 20th edition of the Valspar Championship tees off on Thursday from the Copperhead course at the acclaimed Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club in Palm Harbor, Florida.

Located on the west coast of the Sunshine State, Palm Harbor is about 22 miles north of St. Petersburg and west of Tampa. Those watching the Valspar on TV, or streaming on PGA TOUR LIVE, will notice that Innisbrook – with its sloping fairways, bordered by tall pines and oaks – looks more like a golf course in Georgia or the Carolinas. This is due to Palm Harbor’s hilly geography which is unique in Florida.

What’s also unique are the Valspar’s branding colors. All of them!

Self-coined the “most colorful PGA TOUR tournament in the world,” the Valspar is, well, very colorful. If you’re into more clean-lined styles with a set color palette, the Valspar’s not going to be for you, but…

Let’s look at how the Valspar presents itself as a PGA Tour brand:
