But For......

The course was in very good condition but usually have problems with excess water on holes 14 through 18. Most often they are "cart path only."

But overall, the course and team are usually very good.

The exception is the arrangement with GolfNow. GolfNow is difficult to deal with and I've found it almost impossible to adjust my reservations. Palatine GC should fix this relationship or end it.

Fun course with a great staff

Overall Palatine Hills is a solid municipal course that provides a challenging yet fair test of your golf game. The back nine is prone to flooding if there is heavy rain. Dan, Eric and the rest of the staff are extremely friendly and make any visit a pleasant one. The golf association is a great way to meet new golfers and improve your game by playing in competitive games.

Great quality course

Walked 18 on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. Course has tight fairways. The rough was forgiving but could probably cause issues if they grow it out. Loved the greens. Rolled nicely.

A great public course

There’s been a lot of rain over the past few weeks but the course has absorbed it well. Fairways and greens are in fine condition, course layout has always been super, and the COVID-19 protection measures are sensible and effective.

Nice course. Nice rolling hills for a Chicago area course. Greens were in great shape. We played 18 in three and a half hours on Friday at 11:30 am.
The only drawback is the last three of the last four holes are in a flood plane and are very wet to unplayable if there has been significant rain.
Fortunately, it had been dry for several days prior to our round so we had no problems on the finishing holes.
Everything else about the course is well worth the money.

Even after many rainy days, the course played well - no flooding as in the past. Rough was long because too wet to mow, Was easy to change to later tee time to avoid coming rain, which was much appreciated.
