The Association was formed in 1970 as Palatine Hills Mens Golf Association. The object of this Association is to promote the best interest of the game of golf and thereby to promote the good fellowship and sportsmanship of the Association members. Membership is restricted to golfers of good character and sportsmanship.

Our Board consists of the President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer and 11 elected Directors. These Officers and Directors are elected annually at our Fall Smoker. In addition, the Presidents from the previous 2 years and the Handicap Chairman are automatically made Directors, giving us a total of 18 Directors. The the Park District Liaison and Historian/Librarian are positions appointed by the Board.

There were 53 members in 1970. In 1978 the name was changed to Palatine Hills Golf Association to allow women to join the Association. By 2006, the Association had grown to over 160 members.
