Arnold Palmer, the legendary golfer and course designer, is closely connected to the Bay Hill Club & Lodge. Palmer first played the golf course in 1965 and then bought the facility in 1976. Bay Hill claims that Palmer still plays there often. The Championship Course at Bay Hill is a challenging course that is still suitable for players of all abilities. The golf course is straightforward with no hidden shots. There is also extensive mounding and bunkering throughout the course. Beautiful lakes are situated throughout the course adding some scenery and creating water hazards that come into play on a few holes.

    This is a tough course you can play over and over again without ever getting bored. The finishing holes are great, with a par 5 at 6, which(depending on wind and your drive) you can reach in two, a visually intimidating par 3 at 17, and the classic par 4 at 18 over rocks and water. The recent remodel of the course has greatly improved holes like 14. The lodge has excellent food. And if you come here during the winter months, you may even run into Arnold Palmer! Conditioning of the course tends to be at its peak during the winter months leading up to the Arnold Palmer Invitational PGA TOUR event.
