Bay Hill is a residential golf community with breathtaking lakefront homes on the Butler Chain of Lakes. It is located in the Dr. Philips area about 13 miles southwest of downtown Orlando, 15 miles northeast of Disney World, and on the eastern shore of Lake Tibet.
Due to its hills and valleys, Bay Hill was unable to become a citrus grove like its surrounding neighbors. Not wanting the land to be useless, they came up with the plan to create Bay Hill and its golf course. The community was named after the bay on its north side and the surrounding hills.
Bay Hill offers a wide variety of homes such as single-family, condominiums, lakefront properties, estate homes, and gated communities. It is a great place to raise children, with quiet neighborhoods and top-ranking schools such as Dr. Philips Elementary School, Southwest Middle School, and Dr. Philips High School.
