Length 6603 yards
Slope 129
Rating 71.3

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.

First Time Playing

Played 9, Looking forward to 18 sometime

This was my first time playing this course and I played 9 on the Baer. It was a very nice course and well maintained. Each cart has a rangefinder, which was nice. Staff maintained and pushed a good pace of play. The course is pretty tight with 27 holes on a patch of land in the middle of the burbs, yet still pretty beautiful and challenging, with some tough greens. I look forward to a full 18.

Excellent Course

Schaumburg GC is a wonderful facility; the renovated courses are in great shape, with beautiful white sand bunkers and well maintained greens. The Clubhouse, facilities and staff are great. Well worth the effort to play.

Geeat shape.

Love the layout. Greens and fairways in great shape. New sand on all 3 nines is a great improvement. Friendly staff. Played in 4 hours. . $62 to ride in the morning is a bit much compared to some of the other great suburban courses, but its not a terrible value.

Nice fairways

I have played here a few times and we always enjoy it. There is one hole that we call the "Oh no" and it's fun to play yet challenging. There is a small creek that runs in front of the green so you have to place your shot strategically. The entire course is fun to play. The halfway mark has a great little snack shop and restrooms. Plenty of restrooms around the course as well...for women this is very important! It's a very clean, well kept course that we really enjoy!

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.
