Great Round of Golf on a Beautiful November Day

This was my second time playing at Palatine Hills, I brought two of my friends with me, and we had a wonderful time. We are all beginner golfers who really started playing serious this year. Being beginners the course presented some tough challenges for us to overcome but we still had a fantastic time. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day in terms of the weather, especially since it was mid-November. The greens were in pretty good shape, some needing more care, but this was understandable since it is the end of the season. Some of the grounds crew were out working on on the fairways and cutting tree branches down but were mostly respectful to us as we played through. Unfortunately, the clubhouse must have recently closed, since it was open about a month earlier. It must have been closed either due to covid or it being the end of the season. We were unaware of this and were unable to get any water or food at the turn, which was disappointing. Otherwise, the course is beautiful, maintained well, and was a lot of fun. I highly recommend it and will be back to play here next season.

Nice course

Great layout and the course was in good shape overall. There was a lot of sand on the greens and a few places under repair, which were my only complaints. Very friendly staff and would definitely recommend!

Nice course

Pretty course of moderate difficulty. Appreciated all the rangers on the course making sure people were keeping pace. The restaurant afterward had exactly what I wanted and were very friendly. My only negative is that they need to replenish the toilet paper in the bathrooms.

Good track, slow pace

Course was in good condition. Fairways, greens and bunkers were good. Pace of play could be better as my group waited to tee off on every hole.

Why?

Someone got over zealous with new tree placements and severely sloped greens trying to trick up this course in an effort to make it more difficult. The result is an aggravating affair that never approaches anything close to being fun.
