Chevy Chase Country Club (formerly known as Traditions at Chevy Chase Country Club) in Wheeling is one of Chicagoland's top public golf facilities. Thomas Bendelow designed the golf course in 1925. The classic layout remained largely the same until 2002 when a major renovation updated the course and made it more challenging. The layout now has deep pot bunkers lined with tall native fescue that border the generous, rolling greens and undulating fairways. Though it is more challenging than it was, the golf course still offers a player-friendly round. Four sets of tees also ensure that golfers can play to their skill level. The course finishes with its signature hole, a par 5 that features water both left and right of the landing area off the tee. Three massive bunkers and yet another pond all fiercely guard the green as well.

Another fun round

We enjoyed this course again. Great condition for November. Autumn leaves were not a major problem like I’ve seen elsewhere. Greens rolled well. Thank you for a real good time.

Golf review

The course was very nice. We got out a little early and played in about 90 minutes on the front and then caught up to a group and it was a couple hours for the back. It was in good shape and our group really enjoyed our round as well as the 19th hole after.

good course missing some essentials

i enjoyed my round of golf. great grass to play off of, a friendly starter greeting us on the first tee, and a nice GPS system in the carts! my main complaint was the lack of a concession cart, or a halfway house. would’ve been nice to have access to beverages in the middle of my round. they didn’t even have water stations on the course…
