ORLANDO, FL - The Bay Hill Club & Lodge in Orlando Florida, Palmer's winter home and host course for theArnold Palmer Invitational Presented by MasterCard, made the 2010 Golf Magazine Top 100 You Can Play list coming in at number 51, up from 2008's rank of 54.
The Bay Hill course saw significant renovations in 2009 by the Arnold Palmer Design Company and received it's first true test at the 2010 Arnold Palmer Invitational Presented by MasterCard. PGA TOUR pros and club members alike have voiced overwhelmingly positive opinions on the renovations which were conducted under Palmer's keen eye.
"I think it's brilliant." said Ernie Els, 2010 champion of the Arnold Palmer Invitational Presented by MasterCard. "They are really tough pin positions. I mean, 11-under won. That's where, as a designer, that's where you want the winning score to be."
"Even though Bay Hill is a private course, you're still able to stay at the lodge and play a round of golf." said Palmer. "I really like that golfers are able to play my course as the PGA TOUR pros do."
The next Arnold Palmer Invitational Presented by MasterCard is scheduled for March 21-27, 2011 - for more information visit www.arnoldpalmerinvitational.com.
