A group of us are visiting Orlando in November, what would be the chances of going to Bay Hill golf club and meeting Mr Palmer?

Typically you can't play BayHill unless your staying there , have special circs or are a guest.

As for Palmer , I've never seen him there, out and about , when there's no tourny, event or....something going on.

So I guess..... slim. :)

If it's November(he resides in Latrobe in the summers) and he's in town, you'll see him out on the range before noon as he warms up for his daily shootout. He eats breakfast and dinner in the lodge most days, but as mentioned above you need to stay at the Lodge to play the course.

Uber Fan, Stalker or hitman? That's funny that you have his daily schedule including what time he eats breakfast. ;)

I visited Bay Hill back in June, and Mr. Palmer had just gone back north. In talking with one of the bartenders, apparently when he is in town most of his time is spent at the club. The other thing I found interesting was his statement that when Mr. Palmer is in town, the club is busy. When he leaves, it's dead empty. It was empty when I was there....

True.  I play there a few times a year and outside of rhe member "groups", its usually wide open,  

Palmer seems to think of that place like his backyard garden or something. I dont think he wants many people in his yard.
