Thank you to all the people that took the time to complete our survey last November. We received many positive comments along with suggestions for ways to improve Palatine Hills Golf Course.
Below are responses to some of the more common suggestions.
Course Conditions – Overall ratings of above 90% for course conditions which is virtually the same as in 2014. Many people requested improvements to the tee grounds where the white tees are located.
Staff agree that work needs to be done on these tees. Our maintenance crew will be expanding and leveling these tees on an annual basis as time and resources permit. In 2017, the 2nd and 6th tees are scheduled for improvements.
Pricing – There were numerous comments regarding the perception that Palatine Hills’ pricing is too high. Staff annually compares Palatine Hills’ pricing to that of several local competitors to ensure our green fees are competitive.
Palatine Hills does offer a Players Club Program which provides a means of reducing your green fee prices. Click here for details of the program.
Pace of Play – A wide variety of responses were received on the pace of play. Some commented about pace of play being too slow. Others replied that golfers are expected to play too fast.
Our goal is, depending on the conditions, to have groups complete 18 holes in 4:00-4:15. During our preseason meetings, staff will be trained so there is a more consistent message regarding pace of play communicated to our customers.
