Fox Run Golf Links opened in 1984 but over the past two years the course underwent a major renovation that made the layout both more challenging for serious players but also more forgiving for the recreational golfer. The multi-million-dollar renovation included enhancements to the hole layouts, redesigning the bunkers, installing a new irrigation system, and creating new practice and chipping areas. Water comes into play often throughout the golf course and you'll find elevation changes on nearly every green. The water holes will be especially tough if you have a tendency to slice the ball. Thanks to the varied layout, which includes some holes that are wide open and others that are more target-style golf, you will get the opportunity to work on different types of shots. Fox Run Golf Links is a challenging but fair test that players of all skill levels can enjoy.

Good course with some work to do

Greens are a little bit bumpy.
Sand traps need to all be redone completely.
Tough layout, makes you work for your score.

Junior friendly

I’ve played this course a few times years ago but recently started bringing my two daughters 8 & 6 with me. They are part of the youth on course program and I’m ever so happy for it. They have markers set up for your junior to tee off from and junior score cards. I’ve found it difficult finding places to take my girls due to courses not really accommodating the junior golfer whether from lack of junior tee area and biggest cost. With them being part of youth on course it makes it very affordable and easy. My youngest can’t always finish a round no matter how much she insists. Lol. It’s nice having to only pay $5 so if she can’t it’s not a big deal. The staff is very friendly and considerate. Course is well maintained. Challenging but not discouraging difficult for my girls. I love golfing with my family and Fox Run has made that easier and even more enjoyable!

Challanging and fun

This is probably my 20th time playing this track. Some tough par threes, challanging par fours, nice par fives. The stff is always friendly even though it rained and it was cold we still enjoyed the small amount of play we had gotten in. I say everyone should try this gem.

Alot of weeds

The course has way too many dandelions every where especially by the trees they should have workers use a weed wacker and kill these dandelions and weeds had to stop using a yellow ball cuz it Blended in with the dandelions also between some of the fairways and houses dandelions everywhere. It would improve the course greatly to take care of this

nice place to play

pace was good but had bunch of people waiting to go behind us and for sure they were going to be slow. As they were those type of people who are known to be slow players, we were lucky to be in front of them and had no issues and played at a good pace of play.

average course

Teed off late not sure why for an early morning round with a starter present. Tee time blocks might be too close together? Played a handful of courses in Schaumburg area during a recent trip, there are definitely better options. Good value course if you're on a budget, but some of the others I played were similar price point with better layout & conditions
