The free, family-friendly Head to the Hills Golf Fest returns to Palatine Hills Golf Course, 512 W. Northwest Hwy., in Palatine, from 2 to 5 p.m. Saturday, April 24.

Head to the Hills Golf Fest is open to the community and will include a golf circuit with a variety of activities, including full swings, chipping, putting and a mini-tour of the facility. Masks are required for this event.

 

Advance registration is required and can be completed online at palatineparks.org using program code 227080.

Palatine Park District's own Sammy the Squirrel will be on-site for children to meet. The event begins at 2 p.m. and park district staff will have groups of 10 make their way through instructional golf circuit activities in 20-minute increments. Food and beverages will be available for purchase at the Palatine Hills Clubhouse.

Golf professionals and course staff will be on-site and available to answer questions.

The qualified Palatine Hills team will be able to provide advice on the putting green, at the driving range and take residents out onto The Hills Short Game Area. This new area, across the path from the first hole, offers players the opportunity to practice wedge shots, bunker shots, chipping and putting.

Head to the Hills is supported by local businesses, including presenting sponsor Eric Esch-State Farm.
