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.

Chicago has many nice suburban golf courses. My favorite in the Northwest suburbs is Schaumburg Golf Club. Course conditions are always excellent. Of their three nine hole courses, the Tournament/Baer combination has been my favorite but that could change as they are currently in the process of renovating their nine hole courses. The Players course renovation is near completion with Baer course renovation coming up next. The staff is always helpful and friendly. The clubhouse has excellent bar, restaurant and banquet facilities. I always enjoy playing at Schaumburg Golf Club.

Saturday 2:20 time w/my wife we had no concerns about sunlight once we got going. Done in <4 hrs. The Starter was helpful in getting us out 10 minutes earlier than our scheduled tee time.

We play this course 4-6 times/year. Convenient. Always in good shape. Just gotta use GN to get a fair price. They can be pricey at times.

Course worth $33-weekdays & $40 on weekend.

I've been golfing for awhile now, and have never had such a bad experience with the staff from this course. First off they timed us on some holes and said we were taking too long with the hole. In reality they didn't see us have to wait for the others to go before we could go. They said they we could just hit a few balls and then head to the green. They said we looked like we were new to golf and that we were holding people up. In reality they overbooked the the course and were going about it all the wrong way. I've never been to a course were they were "nice" jerks to the customers. We booked the twilight rate for 18 holes on a Sunday evening and stopped us at the 15th hole because they needed the carts in by 8:30 pm. There were still light out and we could have easily finished the last three holes before dark, but they wouldn't let us. I will NEVER be back to this location, which sucks because I got the SPD card which gives you a discount at the Schaumburg Golf club. Such a waste of time.
