Fountain Hills Golf Club – Rules/Policies

Course Rules/Policies

Dress Code – * Management has right to deem what is appropriate.
Please be aware that Fountain Hills has a dress code for its golf facilities (range included). Proper golf attire is required to be worn at all times and does not permit spaghetti strap shirts, cut-off or short shorts, tank tops or sleeveless shirts. All patrons/spectators using the facility not in compliance with the dress code will be asked to change.

No metal spikes allowed on the course or in the clubhouse. Soft spikes only please!

Outside Food & Beverage
Guests are not allowed to bring in any outside food or beverages on property for consumption.  Only food and beverage purchased from the Club may be taken onto The course.  Due to the State of Illinois liquor laws, all distribution of alcohol must be controlled by The Club.

Pace of Play
It should be a goal of all players to complete their round in 2:15.  The Club’s course advisors will work with all guests to ensure that an acceptable pace of play is maintained to maximize everyone’s enjoyment of their round.  It is the responsibility of each group to keep pace with the group ahead.  If a group falls out of position and is in danger of not completing their round within the allocated time of 2:15, then our course advisor will assist them in getting back into position, which may require them to skip a shot or hole to do so.

Rain Check
Rain checks will be issued for a prorated dollar amount for golf and gas cart (if applicable) based upon holes paid vs. holes completed. A rain check must be completely used in a single visit. Rain checks will not be issued for the following:

  • Due to darkness on a twilight round of golf
  • The golfer does not have time to continue
  • If the golfer leaves the premises

Reservation Policy
Reservations can be made up to 7 days in advance.  All reservations are guaranteed.  Either by 1) online prepayment or 2) guaranteeing with a credit card over the phone through The Club.

All golfers are expected to arrive at the golf course at least 10 minutes before their scheduled tee time.  Reserved reservations will be given away to walk-in players 5 minutes prior to a tee time if the reserved group has not checked in and paid for all golfers.

One important thing to remember, tee time is when you are expected to be hitting your ball down the fairway from the first tee, not when you enter the parking lot with your vehicle or are walking in to the pro shop to pay your green fee.

Fountain Hills Golf Club reserves the right to pair players together.  Groups of less than four (4) players run the risk of being paired with other prepaid or walk-in player(s).

Each golfer must have their own bag and clubs before teeing off.

A reservation may be cancelled up to 24 hours in advance of the tee time with no charge either by contacting the golf shop or through the website.  Any cancellations made less than 24 hours prior to the tee time will be charged the Sr. Resident Rate, unless in the event of a course closure due to severe weather.

No Show Policy
A no-show policy will apply to all tee time reservations.  The individual making the reservation, whether it is for 1,2,3 4 or more players will be responsible for the entire group’s no-show fees, or any portion of the fees if players are missing from the group.  No-shows will be charged the Sr. Resident Rate.

Spectators are at the discretion of the golf shop and must adhere to the dress code and course rules/policies. All spectators must sign a waiver and pay the prevailing spectator fee.
