Golf Nation has announced they are shutting their doors on September 30th.
The long-time Palatine indoor and outdoor golf practice facility has regrettably announced, that they are permanently closing their doors on September 30th. Golf Nation had health club facilities and a bar and grill area.
Just last December Arlington Hts. resident and the top rated junior golfer Doug Ghim announced his intentions to attend the University of Texas on a golf scholarship at Golf Nation. Ghim signed his letter of intent at Golf Nation with the camera’s of both members and local media flashing. But that wasn’t enough to help bring in some needed new members and business.
While many people who belonged there, or went there didn’t find an issue. There were those who thought the location was hard to find.
Golf Nation opened in 2008 and was quickly the place to be. The first year the club had 500 members, and won a national award for being a top new practice facility.
But the statement for GM Tim Wuhrman said, ” a challenging economy and cutbacks by consumers on discretionary spending resulted in Golf Nation never growing to a sustainable level.
Founder Bob DiMeo echoed the comments made by Wuhrman. Both thanked a loyal and friendly staff for their years of service.
There will be an inventory sale of the merchandise in the club,ranging from golf equipment, food and kitchen items, TV’s and more. Call Wuhrman at the club if interested in purchasing any of the items.
