Had lunch here before playing a round. I’ve been here before, but the lunch yesterday was so good. I had a gyro with a side of fries. My father had the fish sandwich with sweet potato fries. Our server Sophie made sure that we had everything we needed. Friendly, professional, and on top of everything. Jersey was the manager on today and followed up with us to make sure that we had everything we needed, and that our items were cooked to our satisfaction. Such great service and food! My round started well- I think it was the lunch- but then I fell apart. I hope to be back here some other time soon. Thanks again to Sophie and Jersey!!!!

Spent two nights here in September to play the Bay Hill course and enjoyed every minute of it. Every member of staff was very pleasant and welcoming and the facilities are very good although some of the furniture is dated. The food we had for brekkie and dinner was exceptional and nothing was too much for the staff. The golf facilities are as great as expected and pretty quiet as well so no pressure or people to watch you. I had the first tee time of the day as a two ball with an 80 year member called LP who was really fun to play alongside. Managed to birdie 18 to really seal the trip. Will definitely be back

Just finished a 4-day stay at beautiful Bay Hill. Everything was incredible from check in to check out. Sonia and Jessica were amazing with our reservations and ensured every detail of my entire 7-person group was provided and taken care of. Rick in the Gentleman’s locker room provided a fantastic adult beverage following a great round of golf on the PGA championship course and Cheryl was amazing in the member’s bar in the evening. This was our 5th trip to the lodge and certainly we will be back next year! Thanks to the entire team!!

This was our third time staying at Bay Hill for the 4th of July and we loved it as always! We had a very quiet and spacious room and really appreciated the care that they have taken to ensure that hotel room doors close softly with no slamming! The bathroom had double sinks, a tub with a nice rainfall shower, and Arnold Palmer's signature toiletries. Anna and Rick at the front desk made us feel so very welcome! They were both helpful in outlining our many dining options and other amenities. Rick took care of our luggage for us as well as bringing us ice and making sure we had everything we needed to get settled in our room. Now on to the dining: The Bay Window Bar and Restaurant is where we had "lite bites" in the afternoon followed by dinner. The chicken wings with the Palmer's blue cheese dressing are not to be missed! The service was terrific and we want to acknowledge and thank Max, Sofie, Cassidy and Vanessa for really spoiling us during our stay! Their wine list (book actually) is extensive and prices range from reasonable to high end. The best deal we found was a bottle of La Crema Pinot Gris (nice light white wine not to be confused with Pinot Grigio) for $30.00. This is one of the best values in Central Florida! We loved every minute, every bite and every sip and can't wait to go back!

The lodge is a good place to stay for the golf course guests. The driving range and facilities are just a short walk away. We had breakfast in the restaurant both days of our stay, and were checked for collar shirts each time (which we wore to the staff’s sigh of relief). On the putting green somebody from the staff disapproved of the adidas joggers my 14 year old was wearing and asked to change into khaki shorts. Not sure if my pants were too colorful either so I changed into different shorts as well. We also were reminded to tug our shirts in which we had. Juniors pay the same as adults (same green fee) and are not allowed into the member locker. We wanted to watch the World Cup soccer final on one of their six TV screens but unfortunately one has to be older than 18 (and we’re asked to leave). We ended up watching the soccer game in our hotel room. When our tee time arrived we had the same caddie for two days who caddied for the foursome. He made sure we kept pace with the group ahead and gave us the distances (the carts do not have GPS). I was hoping for the caddy to help with the club selection and provide guidance on what type of shots to hit. The course itself is fun to play, with challenging water and bunker hazards. It is not a scenic course with the holes going through neighborhoods with close by homes. It looks different to what you see on TV, and hole 18 has a very tiny putting green. Overall there are better suited places for junior golfers than Bay Hill where the membership seems to prefer being amongst themselves. Maybe a resort course is better suited for a father/son weekend golf trip.

If you’re looking for evenings of late-night partying and raucous party goers, don’t stay here. However, if you are looking to experience the traditional golf type of environment that Mr. Palmer created, this is the place. We went to Bay Hill for our anniversary and stayed two nights, October 24th and 25th. We were treated like royalty the entire time. The rooms were extraordinarily clean and most comfortable. The food was exceptional and the staff, regardless of what capacity they served in, was equally exceptional. Every person we happened upon were sure to say hello and ask if there was something they could do to help make our time there better. It stars with check-in. You’ll be greeted by a wonderful staff. Be sure to say hi to Sonja, Sofia, and Ann. They will make you feel at home immediately. When you stop in at the bar, say hi to Anna and Whitney. I saved the best for last. Upon checking in, I wanted to make reservations for dinner that evening, but we couldn’t until 3:00 pm, and we wanted to get to the practice area and range to prepare for our round the next day. We walked toward the restaurant and happened to meet and lovely young lady, Alexis, who volunteered to get us into the restaurant and make reservations, including recommending Mr. Palmer’s table. Alexis found out that it was our anniversary. Not enough space for everything she did. Suffice it to say that she went over the top. THANK YOU, ALEXIS. ALEXIS FOR PRESIDENT!!!! Would I go there again? Absolutely!

Mike Brady the shuttle driver was extremely accommodating, pleasant and friendly. Welcoming at check-in. Great food suggestions. Mike also offered to shuttle our whole group to a local restaurant and was quick to return in order to get us back to our lodging.

The golf course is pristine. Overall, lodge is lovely. Furnishings in rooms are dated, no mini fridge (we were able to request a “medication cooler- a small playmate cooler with some ice- hard to manage the safe temperature needed). Smaller flat screen TVs but they did add USB charging stations. Morning coffee service is a plus. We appreciate the dress code and attention by staff.

16 0f us travelled from the uk, stayed on night in the lodges, so we could play golf the next day, checked in late at night due to travelling from sawgrass. First impressions of the accommodation that it looked very dated,rooms were ok but could do with a facelift, no coffee facilties available so just go to bed. Next morning had a great breakfast, then on to play golf, which didn't disappoint an absolutely stunning golf course, another on to tick of the bucket list thank you
