The Cook County Forest Preserve Board voted Wednesday to buy an Elgin golf course owned by the family of Commissioner Timothy Schneider.

The board voted to pay $5.745 million for Rolling Knolls Country Club.

Five commissioners voted against the measure and one present, not counting the Bartlett Republican, who recused himself from the debate and the vote. Schneider did own a piece of the course, but said his brother Tom spearheaded the deal.
