About Arnold Palmer's Bay Hill Club & Lodge

Par: 72   Yards: 7,381   Slope: 142   USGA: 75.4

9000 Bay Hill Boulevard • Orlando, FL 32819

Truly one of the most recognizable courses in America, Bay Hill was known as Arnold Palmer's winter home course. The original design, by Dick Wilson, dates back to 1961. However, it seems like they are always tinkering with the layout, making it better and tougher for today's pros. The course is most famous for its final three holes, but the other 15 are just as impressive. It's one of those layouts that can just jump up and grab you at anytime. Number six, for example, probably sees more X's than pars. It's a massive par five, that hooks around a beautiful lake. A stay at Bay Hill is golf at its best!

PLEASE NOTE: Bay Hill is a private club and only available to guests of the Bay Hill Club & Lodge.
