The history of Bay Hill and this charismatic golf club is steeped in tradition. Built in 1961, guests appreciate the scenic views and traditional setting across 270 acres along the shores of the beautiful Butler Chain of Lakes. The property later became a favorite of legendary golfer Arnold Palmer after he competed in an exhibition match with Jack Nicklaus and crooner Don Cherry on the then unknown Dick Wilson designed course in 1965. On that day Palmer fell in love with Bay Hill and began the quest to make it his own. By 1970, that dream was a reality and Bay Hill was the winter home of Mr. Palmer until his passing in September 2016. In 1979 Mr. Palmer successfully created a tournament that became an official PGA TOUR stop, attracting some of the strongest fields of the season, now called the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard. Just like the personality of “The King” of golf, Bay Hill is very charming and welcoming, and for those that love the traditions of the game, it is the perfect Bucket List venue. The Lodge features 70 rooms, a full-service Spa and Fitness Center, and outstanding cuisine in 3 restaurants and 27 holes of golf. Bay Hill earned the distinction of Golf Resort of the Year – North America, by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO), was named to Forbes Magazine’s list of 10 Best PGA TOUR Courses You Can Play, and is a Golf Magazine Silver Medal Resort. Bay Hill is also a Top 100 Best Resort Course by Golfweek Magazine, and past recipient of the highly regarded Condé Nast Traveler Gold List Award. It is also the home of the Arnold Palmer Golf Academy, tennis on four Har-tru and two DecoTurf courts, a heated Jr. Olympic-size pool, 3 lounges, and 9,000 square feet of meeting and banquet space.
