Schaumburg, Illinois This 27-hole, high-end municipal course has been a leading club in its community since LGD’s original course makeover in the mid-90s. But things wear out, and the course is once again in need of updating – especially bunkers and tees – to facilitate ease of maintenance and cater to a wider variety of course users and abilities. Originally designed by famed architect, William Langford, plans call for the preservation and re-establishment of many of his strategic bunker and mound features, but with attention to current yardages, playability and maintenance needs. Bunker styling and construction techniques (i.e. aggregate liners) will be employed to ease maintenance of sand while still allowing for dramatic lines and character. Plans also include development of a permanent four-marker tee system, with focus on the PGA’s “Play it Forward” concept, and suggested tree removal/management opportunities to lessen impact on turf conditions and playability. Select greens will be analyzed for possible reconstruction and several major drainage issues will be addressed to improve recovery following storms. Construction work on this exciting project has been tentatively scheduled for the 2017 golf season.
Original architect(s): William Langford (1928)
