The S&H Seniors Golf League is open to all senior golfers, both men and women, ages 55 years and older. A volunteer League Committee runs the League, supported by the Schaumburg Park District Senior Center and Schaumburg Golf Club. This Committee is responsible for basic League Rules and several modified Rules of Golf to meet the needs of senior golfers of all ages to be able to continue to play and enjoy the Game of Golf.
The League's 9-hole season begins the first Tuesday of May and runs through the last week of September and consists of Open Play (social golf) and Special Events (competitive golf). A Chip In Pot is held during Open Play golf. Prize money for Special Events, Chip In Pot, trophies, and prizes won through chance drawings held at the annual Awards Banquet in October are accrued from the League Registration fee. Complete League information can be found in the Golfer's Guide booklet.

December 4, 2013 -- Year in Review
League changes for 2013:
- The Four Player Best Team Tournament was scheduled earlier in the year to avoid the hotter days to minimize absent golfers.
- If a player is disqualified in a Special Event due to absent golfers in a group, the Starter and/or Pro Shop will attempt to place the disqualified player in another group.
- If a Special Event is cancelled two weeks in a row, the event will be suspended and the money for that event will go toward the door prizes at the Awards Banquet.
I would like to thank the League members who volunteered their time and talents to work on the Committee and the Schaumburg Park District Senior Center, Schaumburg Golf Club and Walnut Greens for their continued help, support and advice.
Merry Christmas and a Healthy, Happy New Year.
Ed Kelby, League Chairman
