Where2Golf says: 

The Bay Hill Club & Lodge is Arnold Palmer's Florida headquarters. As you'd expect, the course he designed here is indeed fit for a King. Laid out in three nine-hole loops, the Challenger and Champion nines are used annually by the US PGA Tour for the Arnold Palmer Invitational (formerly Bay Hill Invitational), with the Charger-nine also maintained and presented to the same immaculate standard as the other two.

Bay Hill's gently undulating terrain adds pleasant elevation changes to many holes, which is not too typical for central Florida courses. Ponds large and small also define several holes, and are first encountered at the par-4 3rd and spectacular long par-5 6th. These two holes are wrapped on opposite sides around the same large round pond. The extravagantly curving 6th doglegs right to left around the pond from tee-to-green, the picturesque expanse of water an ever-present threat.

Most of the Bay Hill layout maintains quite an open feel, with trees liberally dotted around the course, but never too densely. The good size homes that flank parts of the course perimeter are always set far enough back not to be intrusive.

MOST MEMORABLE HOLES: The final trio of holes at Bay Hill present as formidable a closing stretch as you'll encounter anywhere. Ponds are a significant threat at the risk-reward par-5 16th, par-3 17th and superb par-4 18th. Water has to be crossed in front of the greens of each of these wonderfully challenging and excellently crafted holes.
