Schaumburg Golf Club - Tournament/Players Course
Schaumburg Golf Club is a 27-hole layout that has hosted the U.S. Open Qualifying and Illinois Open Qualifying tournaments as well as numerous other events since it first opened in 1928. The course is divided into three nines: the Tournament, Players, and Baer. Each course has a different character but one characteristic they all have is the undulating terrain. All three golf courses also boast well manicured tees, greens, and fairways. The nines are played in three different 18-hole combinations. The Tournament/Players course features the most water of the three combinations. The par-4 fifth hole on the Tournament nine has a particularly tricky forced carry over a large pond. In addition to the golf courses, Schaumburg has a practice facility that includes a driving range and two putting greens.

had hard time figuring where next tee box is. also no indications of distance to middle of green. had to flat out guess distance many times. Beautiful course, very good layout, great fairways and greens.
Haven't played for 15 years. It was a great course
Back then. Even better after their remodel.
Highly recommend this course.
A great weather day spoiled
The round took 4 hours and 50 minutes to play with perfect weather conditions and tee time at 12:45 on a Sunday afternoon. There's plenty of staff hanging around at each of the first tees on the 3 nine hole courses, but we didn't see a ranger on the course the entire day. The knuckleheads two groups in front of us had 4 or 5 holes open in front of them, were oblivious to their slow play, and were making everyone's game in back of them miserable. We finally figured out the problem on our 11th hole and talked to them about moving it along (which never goes well) and they did do better after that, otherwise it would have been over 5 hours. You just shouldn't have to do that after spending $73 to play golf.
Well maintained course
This course is one we really enjoy playing. It is challenging enough that my husband likes it and open enough so that I, as a newer player, can still enjoy myself.
Renovation looked great, first time I played here since the completion of it. Greens rolled good. Good to see many walkers playing since it’s a fairly easy course to walk a round in.
Play with others
We booked a 9 hole for the two of us. They squeezed us in with other people (total strangers), which is fine - if it is the rule that four people have to play together, but they should let us know before we book it. We would have invited some friends to play with us instead of playing with strangers. As a beginner, we may not know all the rules.
I was expecting friendly staff but unfortunately it was not true - especially the lady at the hut where we started the first hole.
Fast Greens and Good Times
Shaumburg Golf Club has become a favorite for me and my wife. the Stone or Back Tees provide a reasonable challenge while her Cedar Tees allow her to play on pace with anyone playing any other tee.
What I find most impressive at Shaumburg is the consistency. Every time we play we get quality tee boxes, well groomed fairways, excellent bunker conditions, and reliable, consistent green speeds.
You can't ask for much more.
If there were one issue, the rough is not so consistent. That's fine, but finding your ball can be a challenge at times even when you know where you hit it. I actually like that the rough is so penal however it can affect pace of play to some degree if multiple people in your foursome are missing the fairway.
Staff is always friendly and accommodating but the masks and plexi make it very difficult to communicate and never seeing a smile really has a way of sucking the warmth and charm out of an otherwise pleasant experience. I do look forward to the days when masks are optional.
Always thumbs up.
Never go wrong playing Schaumburg.
Great shape, fair price and easy to walk.
