About

Holes 18
Par 71
Length 6603
Slope 129
Rating 71.3
Type Public
The 27-hole course at Schaumburg Golf Club is divided into three nines that are played in different 18-hole combinations that range from just over 6,000 yards to 6,700 yards. The Tournament, Baer, and Players Courses all provide a unique set of challenges but they share the same great conditions on their tees, greens, and fairways. Schaumburg has been host to numerous events since opening in 1928, including the U.S. Open Qualifying and Illinois Open Qualifying tournaments. It is a popular course since the club offers country club amenities and quality with the affordability of a public golf course. Schaumburg's Players/Baer combination starts out with a few tricky carries over water on the front nine and a more forgiving back nine. There are strategically placed bunkers throughout the course, however.

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.

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.

Schaumburg Golf Club

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!

Finally, some decent greens

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.

Good course, horrible pace of play

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
