Arnold Palmer’s Bay Hill Club & Lodge is an iconic landmark in the world of golf.  Playing this golf course is one of the best experiences in golf. Arnold Palmer purchased the full-service resort in 1976 and made it his winter home.  A trip to Bay Hill Club allows us to pay our respects to the King after his passing in 2017. The courses restrict play to members and guests of the lodge.  Arnold Palmer memorabilia fill the lodge.

A tremendous twenty-seven hole layout comprises three nines – Challenger, Champion, and Charger.  The Challenger and Champion nines comprise the 18-hole course that hosts the Arnold Palmer Invitational on the PGA Tour.  The championship layout is consistently intriguing with lakes bordering on twelve holes and over 100 bunkers.  Bermuda grass greens are raised, tiered and undulating and provide a consistent challenge.  Course conditioning is superb.  Penalizing rough places a premium on hitting fairways.  Multiple holes require forced carries over water providing exciting risk/reward opportunities. The fee includes a forecaddie for the foursome.  You can also hire a private caddie.
