The history of Bay Hill and this charming golf club is steeped in tradition. The highly regarded golf course was built in 1961, with breathtaking views that sweep across 270 acres along the shores of the 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 Don Cherry on the then unknown 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 has been the winter home of the Palmer family ever since. 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, where Tiger Woods just reclaimed his status at No. 1 in the world with his 8th victory at Bay Hill. Just like Arnold Palmer himself, Bay Hill is very charismatic and inviting, and for those that love the traditions of the game, Bay Hill is the perfect Bucket List venue. The Lodge features 70 rooms, a full service Spa and Fitness Center, and outstanding cuisine in 3 restaurants.
