Length 6644

Rating 71.7
Type Public
Schaumburg Golf Club is a 27-hole course that is divided into three nines: the Tournament, Baer, and Players. The nines are played in three different 18-hole combinations that offer a variety of different challenges. The nines have unique designs but all the courses share an undulating terrain and well manicured tees, fairways, and greens. Due to the quality of the design and excellent conditions, the course has been host to numerous events over the years including the U.S. Open Qualifying and Illinois Open Qualifying tournaments. The Tournament/Baer combination features plenty of water on the front nine, while the back nine is more forgiving but still dotted with strategically placed bunkers. Schaumburg is a popular course not only because of the design but also because of the country club setting at public-course prices.

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.

First Time Playing

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.

Horrible pro shop service

The guys at the pro shop here have no personality and not accommodating.

I booked my tee time at GolfNow.

I wanted to use my rain check from the golf course but was denied use when I showed up today.

I called Schaumburg golf club yesterday asked if I can use my rain check and they said yes. When I showed up to the course today they denied the rain check.

Apparently when I called the course yesterday, the call was transferred to GolfNow and someone at GolfNow told me that I can use the rain check but was denied by the course.

That blows!!!!

Never going back to this course again.
