Golf lovers at any age and skill level challenge their skills at the sprawling Bay Hill Club and Lodge resort, which established the Arnold Palmer Golf Academy to teach the fundamentals according to Palmer and his philosophy of the game.

Great place, quiet, relaxing, and comfortable!

We were very pleased with our entire stay. After long hot days in big crowds it was very nice to come back to a place that felt like home sweet home! We highly recommend it to all. You don't need to be a golfer to enjoy all the other aspects of this great hidden jewel of a resort!

Love, love, love it!

Second stay at Bay Hill and plan to return again & again. Love the gracious, classic ambience that combines with modern amenities such as in-room wi-fi internet access. Staff is extremely pleasant and helpful -- one example, they'll print boarding passes for FREE. Primary purpose of our stay was R&R and we got it in a quiet, beautiful locale in which the guests truly are treated like club members. My husband hit a bucket of balls on the driving range and was treated exactly as if he was a full member going to play 18 holes. At the pool, drink & snack service is friendly and efficient. The grounds are beautiful, the bed comfortable. Not a place for lots of activities, but rather for quiet relaxation and old-fashioned comfort.

A Miniature Pebble Beach Feeling

This was NOT a hotel feeling. The Lodge had a "welcome to the family" greeting with everything available a golfer and friend could enjoy. The history of Arnold Palmer and friends jumped out everywhere you visited - only Mr. Palmer was missing out West with his grandson. I so look forward to visiting again. The Bay Hill Lodge is a very special location to sleep, play, and enjoy life.

Besdies playing the great Bay Hill course, just a short drive away is Grand Cypress GC where playing the North and South courses will add to your golfing experience for the week.

Clean and updated.

We stayed at this hotel for one night because we found a good rate. Honestly, we did not stay here because of the golf course; we had plans to visit Disney. The rooms were very clean and updated. The bed was not very comfortable. The front desk quickly changed our room from a double to a king sized bed after we checked in. The staff were friendly. We ate breakfast in the restaurant; the meal was fairly priced and of decent quality. The hotel is very quiet and in a well manicured area of Orlando called Bay Village. We would stay there again even though we don't play golf.

Great Retreat

Very quite, serene retreat from the hectic traffic of the Orlando area. Great accommodations with excellent dining facilities. Beautiful and challenging golf course. One can feel the influence of Arnie while relaxing.
