Bay Hill is located midway between Universal Studios and the Disney Resorts in southwest Orlando, and is owned by and the winter home of Arnold Palmer. Dick Wilson designed the course in the early 60's, but Palmer and the late Ed Seay have tinkered with the course ever since.

It is a classic and big, Florida course playing to 75.3/140, course/slope ratings from the 7,267 yard tips. There's plenty of sand and water hazards creating heroic strategies, and not a hole to catch you breath on. It's the home of the annual PGA tour stop bearing Palmer's name, and only open to the public if you stay in one of the 70 lodge rooms. If you're there in the winter around 12 noon, you might even see the King as he prepares for his daily shootout.

Bay Hill ate my lunch, there's not one hole where you get a break. It's a big course, mostly a lot of room off the tee, although there's some strategic holes like #6 which bends around the lake, cut off as much as you like. Bring your A game, fairly well conditioned for this time of year, very expensive, but a treat to play. Didn't see Arnie although I understand he was out at the range earlier.

My wife and I stayed at Bay Hill over the weekend. Played only the championship course, it was in good condition, played three rounds and pace of play was always about 4.5 hours. Very challenging golf course, although the rough wasn't up all that high, we found it somewhat penal. While the fairways are mostly wide open off the tee, it does require good shot placement to have the best approach to the greens, which were some of the more difficult we've played in Florida, and some of the fastest.

Slow day of play, but almost the last time you can play before the tournament starts next week. Course was in fantastic shape, greens were the fastest I've played in Florida, the rough was extremely deep, very challenging no matter which tees you play from.

Worth the cost to stay at the lodge and play. The best time of year here is fall and winter for optimum conditions, just after the tournament or in the summer it's just not the quality
