Tampa area resort renames golf course to honor Republican presidents

Delegates to the Republican National Convention who are duffers will want to check out the Copperhead Course at the Innisbrook Golf Resort.

The Tampa-area vacation haven has temporarily renamed that course's holes after the past 18 Republican presidents, reports's Golf Buzz blogger John Holmes.

Golfing convention goers from South Carolina and Florida who are staying at Innisbrook later this month will start at the Abraham Lincoln tee box and wrap up their rounds by holing out on the George W. Bush.

The Tampa Bay Business Journal had some fun in describing the presidential attributes of the renamed holes, notes Holmes, who cites several of the examples. My favorite is the tricky 14th, or as it's known while the 2012 Republican convention is in town, the Richard Nixon.

So I'm wondering if some Charlotte, N.C., course might follow suit with a Democratically renamed presidential course while Obama and the Democratic National Convention are in town in early September.
