We stayed at the Bowen house for two nights. Located on the 18th fairway, a two bedroom masterpiece. Mr. Palmer had passed away just days earlier and the feeling of loss was palpable. Everything about the visit from check in to check out was first class. All guests are treated like members of the club. I will not stay at...

I'm a new member at Bay Hill. The course is outstanding and the locker room atmosphere is great (including frequent Arnie sightings). They managed to kill the greens on the back nine a few months ago and it's been closed ever since. This has been hugely disappointing, but they did reduce member fees during the replanting period. As a helpful...

For the second straight year, we spent a week at this property that's just far away enough from the tourist "madness", but close enough to many good restaurants (including the one on property). It's hard to beat the value (two rooms.. four people... less than 300/nt including tax). No this isn't the fanciest place, but as the headline suggests, we...
