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.

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!

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.

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

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.
