The team at Bay Hill Club & Lodge has been monitoring updates from the Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization and we are responding quickly and effectively. We want to assure you that our priorities are to help the nationwide effort to prevent further spread of the virus, to provide comfort and safety to our Members and guests, and to support our valued team members. Efforts to keep our facility as clean and safe as possible include:
Due to the availability of vaccines, declining numbers of cases in our area and guidance from the CDC, the Bay Hill Club & Lodge has adopted a voluntary or optional mask policy for members and guests. We will continue to enforce a mask policy for our employees (those working indoors only). Throughout COVID our priority has been the health and safety of all members, guests and employees. We will continue to operate in line with this effort as we step closer to a sense of normalcy for all of us.
