Schaumburg Golf Club - Players/Baer Course
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.

Terrible experience on multiple occasions
Much better courses in the area. Here’s my experience. I get hyped for golf around Independence Day. One reason because I’m a Vet and I love my country. The second reason is because my birthday is right around that day. I went to this course on my birthday and wanted to play as a single. But I asked the gentleman at the counter if my wife could ride with me because she doesn’t play but wanted to be with me because she knows how much I love the sport, and he told me no it was against policy and a liability. So I walked out upset that I wasn’t going to get to play that hyped course on that day. Fast forward and I try again, this time by myself. Lo and behold the pairing I’m grouped with was a father and his family. They were very nice. The daughter did not play. She just rode with her father. So much for policy.
Now the review, course layout is nice. That’s about the only nice thing. The few times I’ve played the greens are abysmally slow. Uphill/Downhill it doesn’t matter, you can over strike a putt and it will still only go halfway. Nobody that plays there fixes ball marks on the greens and everybody drags their feet. I spent half the time fixing about six to seven ball marks on each green. The reason I did so was because I had no where to go. Which leads me to pace of play. Horrid. Several holes with two to three group backups and not once did I see a ranger out there trying to fix this issue. Really messes with rhythm. Let’s talk about staff. Despite the policy issue already stated, the starter was rude and unhelpful. I was never greeted and when I finally walked up to him and mentioned that I was a single at such and such time his only response was “Ok”. I had to walk up to a couple groups to figure out who had the same tee time as me and inform them I was going to fill their group. Halfway house woman was nice. Better courses in the area. Especially for that price.
Make your tee time here!
One of the best muni courses out there, be prepared for slow play on the weekend. Beautiful day at the course, played 9 on players, challenging track, in great condition. Pace of play was slowww, but didn’t mind as it was a nice day! Don’t hesitate making your tee time here.
Very Enjoyable. Played on a Monday so wasn’t to crowded. This course definitely be on our rotation.
