This 27-hole public facility, operated by the Schaumburg Park District, was looking to secure its place in the Chicago market as a premier golf destination. A cornerstone of the community, PD leaders were also looking to improve the long-term sustainability of the course for the next generation by addressing a failing infrastructure, including the reconstruction of the existing greens to USGA recommendations.  Originally designed by famed architect, William Langford, redevelopment plans also called 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) were employed to ease maintenance of sand while still allowing for dramatic lines and character.  A permanent five-marker tee system was also incorporated, with focus on the addition of a forward tee system dubbed the “Life Tees”.  The intent of this system is to encourage tee choice based on player ability, with the incentive to “graduate” from front to back and then back to front as skill sets changes with age.

Original architect(s):  William Langford (1928)

Testimonials

“Comments about the renovation at Westmoor have been overwhelmingly positive and many in the community, who are not members, have expressed their desire to be invited to play. We cannot thank Bob and Todd enough for maintaining their patience for so many years. I am pleased that our companies have such a mutually beneficial relationship and together we have persevered through some difficult challenges to create an outstanding golf facility.”

Chief Operating Officer, Westmoor Country Club

"As Golf Course Superintendent at Tippecanoe Lake Country Club, it has been my pleasure to be involved in two major projects with Bob and Todd, both completed on time and at budget. The Lohmann Quitno team is wonderful to work with, and our membership is very pleased with the results. In fact, our membership has grown since the completion of the projects and the excitement has them continuously asking me: ‘What's next?’”

Ronald J. Forks
Golf Course Superintendent, Tippecanoe Lake Country Club

“Like any facility contemplating a project, we had a vision of what we wanted. It takes a talented and focused company to interpret someone else’s vision and provide a product that compliments it exactly. The Lohmann Quitno team has that talent and focus. They provided us with a facility that meets every expectation we laid in front of them and one that we are extremely proud of. The foresight, planning and execution Bob and Todd brought to the table positioned Indian Creek well for many years to come.”

Jim Nedrow GCS
Superintendent, Indian Creek Golf Course

“During the past 25+ years I have worked directly with Bob and Todd at both of our golf facilities on a diverse range of projects. The Lohmann Quitno team has demonstrated a passion and commitment to meeting or exceeding our expectations on each project. They understand the unique challenges that we face at each of our golf facilities and develop solutions that meet player expectations and that are cost effective. They have been a big key to our success!”

“Lohmann Quitno and their staff worked very hard to exceed the expectations of our membership resulting in the largest grounds project at Fort Wayne Country Club in recent history. We could not be happier with the leadership provided by Bob and staff for the concept, design and follow through.”

Brian C. Chalifoux

“The work that we have accomplished to date has been extremely well received by our members. Our board of directors, golf course superintendent, and I are so happy with our working experience with Todd that we are now preparing to embark on a complete long-term master plan for the entire facility. We eagerly look forward to a continued partnership with Lohmann Quitno.”
