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.

Nice course

One of the few courses that are not price gouging customers . I see courses charging 50 60 bucks in December. Chevy is reasonable and it’s appreciated. Course in good shape too!

Solid course

This is a nice and challlenging course but this time of the year, there's so much poop on the tee box and fairways, which should have been cleaned regardless. Some days the pace is very slow and some days, it's fast.

Challenging Course

I've played this course twice and the layout of holes is very fun and challenging. Watch out for lots of duck poop though.
