We only play here after they drop their greens fee - over-priced during the regular playing season with only a meager break for seniors.

The course itself is terrific - great layout, fun to play, good bar and restaurant.

Schaumburg GC is one of the best "park courses" in the West Chicago Suburbs. They have 3 9's which helps keep the course interesting. The par 5s need a couple long hits to reach in two. Good mix of Short par 4's and Long Par 4's. Conditions are always pretty good from tee to green. The greens can be very fast during the hot summer months. Overall this course is super solid and i do play it consistently

Took over a half hour to play the first two holes, so we knew we were in for a slow round. We notified the pro shop after five holes about the pace of play . Nothing was done. We notified a ranger on the course on the 10th hole . He shrugged our complaint off..... Still nothing was done. The group behind us quit after 12 holes because of their frustration. The round took over five hours and the course was only half full . The course was in good shape and the girl at the halfway house was very friendly. We should've played a different course.

I've been playing this course since well before the redesign in 90 or 91 and it has consistently been an enjoyable experience. The course is always in superb condition and the pace of play is almost always well within an acceptable range. This year is no different. The course is once again immaculate and the staff is by far the best I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. If you don't have an enjoyable round at Schaumburg Golf Club it's probably a 'you' problem rather than a 'them' problem. And no, I'm not being paid to write such a glowing review - I just love the place and pretty much everyone who works there. Municipal golf at it's absolute best. Thank you Jon and staff!

Schaumburg Golf Club is a beautiful golf course that plays very well. The course is well maintained and has high-tech golf carts. My only complaint of the course was having an attendant say "We can't have you taking 9 strokes to get down to the green. We are very busy today." at our first whole. Nothing distracts your first shot more than being rushed. This was very inappropriate as the pair we played with maintained pace right behind the earlier tee time. I will likely return to this course with hopes of better staff.
