To those who are fans of the greatest game ever played, look no further than the home of the legend Arnold Palmer. The Bay Hill Club and Lodge consists of 70 guest rooms, 4 handicapped rooms (only one with a roll in shower) and 9 inaccessible guest cottages. The accessible room has two queen size beds right at 30” high, some toppers and the comforter can be removed before arrival to help lower if needed. The shower has a removable chair and a small 1” plastic lip.
The lodge was originally designed in 1961, which allowed the club house and pro shop to be built with multiple levels. Navigation of the lodge can be difficult due to these levels, and there is no direct path to the lobby, pro shop and to the “Bay Window” and “Grill Room” restaurants from the handicapped accessible rooms. However, the Bay Window bar is at a low accessible height with a gorgeous view of the driving range. The “Splash Café” is located right outside the handicapped entrance to the lodge.
To access the pro shop, a small hydraulic lift must be used.
A golf cart may be used to navigate the grounds. The club owns no wheelchair accessible carts, but does allow personal and/or modified carts.
The lobby restrooms are narrow, and the stall doors will not close behind a wheelchair.
Please know that booking a lodge room is the only way to play the Bay Hill Golf Course without connections to membership.
