General

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. No more than four students are paired with an instructor, and individual coaching is also available. For non-golf activities, visitors book a spa treatment, grab a workout in the fitness center or pool, or practice on six tennis courts. A salon pampers with full- or half-day packages and individual hair, nail and skin-care treatments.

Nice even for a non-golfer

I chose this lodge because it was close to the venue for an event I was attending and reasonably priced. It was charming and rustic (in an elegant way) and immaculately maintained. The restaurant overlooked the golf course, was priced surprisingly reasonably for a resort, and served top-notch fare. The wait staff was cordial and attentive. The room was quiet, well-appointed, and spacious.

Hidden Gem

This resort/hotel is a wonderful place to stay for business to keep away from the touristy areas of Orlando. There are only 72 rooms so it is nice and quiet. If you are arriving after dark, make sure you have a GPS as the venue has no lit signs and the area is quite dark.

Great place, great value

It was a great experience. The staff was friendly. The room was very comfortable and clean. The surroundings were quiet, much better than a hotel nearer to the convention center.

Went on business, but a great family getaway!

Went on business with my husband, two adult sons and one daughter in law. Stayed in a two bedroom house on the fairway. Beautiful view! Very relaxing. The house design is very eclectic. Probably from the 60's with today upgrades (flooring, carpets kitchen appliances and master bedroom bathroom). We all enjoyed the house which is quite spacious. We didn't really use the full kitchen or hang out as much as we would have liked to. We would like to come back with the grandchildren. It's close to Universal Studios, a lot of nice restaurants and a Whole Foods Store. The Club House and restaurant (good waffles) are quite nice! The service is also quite good. My husband and sons played golf and that was expensive but a lot of fun. They saw Mr. Palmer and he kindly signed some golf balls for them.
