Schaumburg Golf Club - Tournament/Baer Course
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.

Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Illinois
Hands down probably the nicest public course in the area. They have 3-9hole courses rotating so whether you play 9 or 18 you'll get some variety each time you play. Great hole variety and course is always in immaculate shape. They do charge quite a bit but you can sometimes snag a hotdeal in advance. Pace is usually pretty good depending on the day.
New and Improved
Schaumburg GC remodeled all three 9's. Last time I played here, only the Players 9 was remodeled, and the other two were either in progress or next in line. They remodeled one each year for three years in a row. This course is $ 85 to ride on weekends at prime time. I think with the location, remodel and real GPS on the carts now, it's worth it. I can play other courses for less, but then have to drive about 30 minutes to get there. .
What's better? The greens are more sporty than I remembered them being, and it took me a few holes to get a handle on the speed, and how much they rolled out. Keep the ball below the hole. Sidehill putts are tricky, too, as you'll roll out. The fairways seem about the same, aside from new grass and movement of a few bunkers. Have fun!
Could be a private country club
Played this course a few years ago and remembered it to be a nice layout. It was even better now. They have 3 nines and we played the Tournament and Players courses. Both were in perfect shape from tee to green with plenty of sand in the many bunkers. The greens have lots of undulations and were extremely fast - so much so that most putts from above the hole wound up 5 - 10 feet past. Lots of water and prairie grass to avoid, but it's a beautiful course. We found a Hot Deal which seemed to be a great deal, but didn't notice that carts are extra at $20 each, which is rather high. We let 2 twosomes play through and then got scolded by a less than pleasant ranger on the 16th tee for being 15 mins behind. Still finished in 4 hrs 20 mins. They have a nice driving range with plenty of natural grass stations. The restaurant looks inviting, but we didn't eat there.
Course Is in Great Shape
My first time here, and played the Baer 9 holes. The greens and fairways were in great condition, and the white sand in the bunkers was pristine (and I avoided all of them!). Fairways are wide, but bunkers around greens making some holes challenging. At the price paid, this is an excellent value.
Nice course but on the expensive side
Nice course to play. I will probably give it a 4stars but the green fee is a little expensive. This is a nine hole course and I can play 18 holes in other golf course with this price.
Steph insisted I buy their park district card to get the rate that was advertised on Golfnow
Everything is good except cart fee. Fee was $15 but now they increase cart fee as $20. they don’t charge cart properly and cart was stopped due to none charge during playing, never be happened 2 years golfing. But they charge $20 non-sense. next year maybe charge $30 For cart fee. It is other public course charge amount including cart fee.
Great Course. Great lay-out. Been years since I have played. It is beautiful. Not cheap anymore, careful of extra $40 extra for a cart. Otherwise very challenging a better have your A game to shoot well/
Jewel of the suburbs
Great courses that is challenging but fair! Always in premium condition!
Nice course.., fairways, greens and sand traps are among the best in the area. Fairways need more yardage markers for walkers.
