About

Length 6435
Slope 128
Rating 70.6
Type Public
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.

Greens were great

I have been playing this course forever. For a late autumn day, it was fantastic. The greens rolled true, the rough was long and the pace of play was very good.

Third Year Playing Here

Played in a small company outing on the 21st, in which we played the Player’s and Tournament course. Player’s just re-opened this season after a rehab and loved every part of it. Fun layout, beautiful sand and true-rolling greens. Very excited to see what they do with the Baer track. The Player’s track was in okay condition.

Very friendly staff who genuinely care about the players and their experience. We work with the PGA Pro, Johnathan Parsons for the course setup and Bob Whitehead for the food and beverage at Chandler’s Chophouse. Johnathan and Bob have helped us out each year of the outing and is very accommodating. I forgot to mention to John that we wanted to have closest-to-the-pin and longest drive contests, but the staff was able to set it up in a matter of minutes with no hesitation. While we are not a huge outing, the club’s service is no different from if we filled the course with a shotgun start.

The course and staff quality brings us back each year.

Nice track, but

Layout is nice. Not long (>6100) from the tips.

Played Players than Tournament courses. Completely different experience. Well maintained, fast greens, fair rough on Players.

Tournament was shaggy fairways, slow greens, and rough where you had to step on the ball to find it. At least 5" deep. Incredible. But I recommend for the Golfnow price. I'll give them a chance at redemption at some point.

Great renovation

Played Tournament-Player Course.

First time playing Player course since redesign was finished. sand traps were beautifully done with new sands. green speeds were average. enjoyable cousrse overall. #6 hole could be intimidating with this hole so close to a street. It has no protective neting so, I imagine a ball could easily be hit into the street.

Schaumburg Golf Club

Schaumburg GC is a nice course, a good test for all and in good condition. One of their 3 mines is under repair and not open for play so be aware if you’re looking for 27. The 18 holes that are open are very good.

The practice range is solid and the clubhouse , pro-shop and Chandlers restaurant are first class. The staff is great!

Finally, some decent greens

Schaumburg CC is generally in good shape, the greens were considerably better than the courses I have played lately. They ran true with some decent speed, not as fast as normal here but pretty good. The rough was brutal, didn't look like it had been cut for some time. Finding balls was very difficult and it was definitely a penalty to be in it. Our group of 4 lost 6 balls that we should have been able to find. Pace was good, just over 4 hours on a holiday. I would play here every day on a hot deal with 25% off.

Good course, horrible pace of play

Solid course for the price, conditions are always above average and it’s a challenging layout. The problem this course has is the pace of play. It’s up there with the worst in the area. 5 hour round yesterday. I will not be going back
