Rating 71.7

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.

Covid golf

Course is well maintained! Greens are fast. Even though golfers are teed 10 min apart a twosome with a cart quickly catches up to a foursome of walkers that gets aggravating! All in all worth the money!

Course in great shape, cart fee is terrible.

Be aware that a cart will cost you $28 if you're a solo, $38 for a twosome. In other words, almost as much as greens fees. This isn't the only course doing things this way (offering only walking rates and not posting cart fee) but talk about sticker shock when you hear the fee.

That being said, the course is in great shape and fun. Pace of play is often slowish, but have enjoyed my couple rounds there this year and likely to return.

High cart fees

Really great course in terrific shape. I thought I was getting a deal by booking the walking rate online. I figured it would be $10 more for a cart. I was surprised they wanted $20 per person for two carts, adding $80 to the total.

Great course

Great course and maintained well. Surprised by the cart rental charge when we got there, being $19 per person for 1 cart. It was well worth it though cus my large bodied and lazy self can’t walk any 18 hole course. Overall enjoyed it and would recommend to anyone.

SGC is my go to course.

My go to course. 27 holes allows for someone like me that plays often to change things up a bit. Everything about SGC is very nice.

It was so slow of a golf pace

I left feeling like I was ripped off 42.00 dollars and they charged us 1900 each for one cart . I asked if we could have are own cart because of Covid and they said there would be an addditional charge . We only golfed 12 holes it was so slow

Don't be deceived, if you call to make a tee time and the shop does not answer your call gets transferred to a person who books you with Golf Now. Golf Now is a joke, I tried to cancel my reservation and the website denied it eventhough the tee time is 5 days in advance, you can not talk with anyone at Golf Now, their website sends you to a chat room, I tried the chat room and waited over 60 minutes for a response, no one ever got back to me. I tried calling the course and was told that I needed to cancel with Golf Now and it might take 5 -7 days eventhough they processed my credit card within 10 minutes. My reason for cancelling was a difference between course posted rates and what woman told me on the phone. I am completely disgusted with Golf Now's customer service and the fact that the golf club has been little help. BTW I hold a permanent tee time a Schaumburg, but this might change next year.

Wide open course

This course is very well maintained. The fairways are long and open and just very pretty. There is some water, but not too much even for a novice golfer like myself. I was able to really enjoy playing. I lost a ball or two to the water which is fine because I'm learning, I don't think more experienced players would have my luck. The refreshment cart was around just the right amount of times to keep us stocked. The halfway house was right in the middle and prefect for a midgame snack. We heard the clubhouse had great food, but we did not have time to try it. We will be back to play here for sure!
