The Arnold Palmer Design Company has long been regarded as one of the premier companies in the golf course architectural industry. Founded in 1972, APDC has created approximately 300 golf courses around the world. APDC has won numerous awards and their courses have been the venues for many tournaments. However, APDC believes the best reward is the quality of life provided to those who enjoy their golf courses and the friendships with clients coming from jobs well done.
Arnold Palmer Design Company is headquartered in Orlando, Florida, at Arnold Palmer's winter home, the Bay Hill Club and Lodge. This location allows clients to come enjoy Mr. Palmer's world-class resort and play on the renowned golf course which hosts the annual Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by MasterCard on the PGA Tour, while being able to meet and spend time with Arnold Palmer and his staff.
The Arnold Palmer Design Group designed the course with the following philosophy, "The sky is the limit!"
"If you think anything of Augusta and what you've seen over the years… I certainly think Cherokee Run is one of the great golf courses in the world." – Arnold Palmer
