One of my favorite PGA Tour courses is Bay Hill Golf Club in Orlando.
Here’s why I love the place:
The course, originally designed by Dick Wilson and Arnold Palmer, is a masterful layout with six doglegs and water in play on 10 of the 18 holes.
The 18th hole is a blast to play. The par-4, 485-yard (from the tips) hole requires a laser-accurate mid-iron shot over water to a huge, undulating green bordered by deep bunkers on the left side.
Though it’s a private club, you can play there if you stay at the resort’s 70-room lodge.
There’s always a chance you can meet Arnie, who is seen around the property a lot during the winter months.
The service at the course and lodge is attentive but unpretentious.
