What a wonderful experience!
The entire Bay Hill experience is unforgettable! My wife and I throughly enjoyed our time. We were greeted like old time friends when we arrived, and treated as such until we've left. Rooms are quaint, quiet, and have a wonderful view if you're on the golf side. Don't expect a resort, expect and welcomed quiet release. This is a perfect place to stay, play golf, then hit up a park. Prices are very fair. Dining at the Lodge is a must! Dress codes are enforced, but I appreciate it! Makes the experience more special.
Wonderful historical touch, and lots of Palmer memorabilia around the course and clubhouse.
Cons: I wasn't a fan of was the attitudes of the gentleman in the pro shop. I understand I'm a twenty-something guest at a prestigious country club, but the arrogant, nonchalant demeanor towards my wife and I was very disappointing.
Also, the course was in pretty tough shape around the tee boxes... Very, very gnawed and dry. I expected a little more from a world famous course.
All in all, my wife and I will be back, probably more than once!
