One of Orlando’s most exclusive communities, Arnold Palmer’s Bay Hill Club & Lodge is beautifully nestled on the Butler Chain of Lakes. Built in 1961, the Bay Hill Club was originally owned and designed by Dick Wilson. Upon Wilson’s death an additional 9 holes was added by Bob Simmons to the course. Purchased by world famous golfer Arnold Palmer in 1974, the club, course, and grounds grew in popularity considerably under the new ownership by Palmer. SInce 1979, the Bay Hill Club has hosted the Arnold Palmer Invitational at the club, a PGA tour event. The Invitational is usually held in early March and is a favorite of both Bay Hill residents and golf enthusiasts alike.
Although Bay Hill is known mostly for its famous golf background, the community also boasts many other amenities due it its access to the Butler Chain of Lakes. Over the years the clubhouse was expanded to include the 70 room Bay Hill Lodge featuring a spa, fitness center, pool, and even tennis courts for guests to enjoy. A favorite feature of the community, the lodge is the perfect place to have guests stay when visiting where your home can remain private after a long day of hosting and visiting. Bay Hill also contains its own marina where boaters can visit the club, residents can store their water-crafts, and it also provides fishing packages for those staying at the Bay Hill Lodge.
