The Schaumburg Golf Club was purchased by the Schaumburg Park District in 1989. The golf course was originally designed by the firm of Langford and Moreau in the 1920s and modified in the early 1990s. With the Club celebrating a quarter century in operation, the current golf course infrastructure is in need of major repairs. Confirmed through soil testing analysis from three independent labs, the infrastructure of the greens and bunkers, i.e. the soil composition, drainage, and irrigation, no longer adapts to varying weather conditions.
Because of this, the District has developed a multi-year enhancement plan, which includes new and repositioned bunkers, modifications to the greens, a longer Driving Range with twice the amount of grass tee space, reconfiguration of two holes on the Players Course to alleviate flooding issues, alteration of the size and position of the practice putting greens and improvements to ease additional drainage issues. In addition, features of the original Langford and Moreau design will be reincorporated into the golf course.
The Enhancement Plan will begin in June 2017 and includes three phases. Each 9-hole course will be closed separately, allowing for 18-holes to always be available for play. Construction is slated to begin with the Players Course and the driving range in June 2017. After the Players Course is complete, construction then will start on a different 9-hole course. The projected completion date for the entire project is mid-2020.
