The Bay Hill Club was built in 1961. It was just four short years after that in 1965 when the “King of Golf”, Arnold Palmer, played in and won a charity golf event on what was then an unknown golf course. He fell in love with Orlando and Bay Hill that day and it became a part of him. In 1970 the process began to make Bay Hill his own with a 5-year lease that ended with Palmer making it the Florida home he still frequents today. By 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 which takes place annually in March. Just like Arnold Palmer himself, Bay Hill is a charming, inviting, special place that features a 70 room Lodge and many other world class amenities, making it a comfortable and value added experience for guests to enjoy this historic place.
