Type Public
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.

Considering all the rain- Outstanding experience

The course had been closed for a few days because of the fairways flooding. We tees off at 9:15, cart path only, and because of how wet the fairways were, we were given $10 off our rate. The greens were perfect and the fairways playable. The course has obviously been taken care of from a grounds standpoint. Food at the turn great. Pace of play great.

Great course

I always enjoy playing this traditional and historic course a couple times a year. Well manicured, exceedingly well manicured, it was challenging enough to make me want to come back again. Highly recommend.

Great Track

This is an awesome golf course. It is forgiving and invites the aggressive play. On a few holes you'll be presented with a risk/reward gamble. Also has a hole in one $10,000 give away option.

Pleasant experience

From being greeted at my car with a cart, to the last putt, I had a thoroughly wonderful day. The staff was friendly and courteous, the starter paired me with a delightful 2some, and we enjoyed a glorious adventure for 18 holes. Well kept and challenging layout was in great shape.

Thanks to Golf Now, I got a good deal and I plan on returning with my buddy this summer.

Highly recommended this venue !

Great Course

The staff here is friendly and very helpful. They actually seem glad to see you and share good info on the course and amenities. Big value add in my view.

The course was in good shape with the only issue being the ball marks on the greens...but this is a player issue as people were not repairing ball marks. My only complaint is that we never saw the beverage cart during our round and this was tough because the heat index was around 100 that day. Other than this, a very good experience.

the course was crappy from rain the night before and on top of that, there was an outing and a threesome that was very slow and that slowed down 4 other groups along with my foursome. it was a very frustrating round where we sat for 15 minutes on every hole waiting for people to tee off so most of the other groups left early. I'm very surprised that there were no rangers monitoring the pace of play even when I messaged them through the navigation unit in the carts. needles to say that I will not be back anytime soon at this course!

Terrible

There was a temporary tee box on 1 due to a wedding setup....a temporary green on 8—with no notice or signage....when I finished my round at 6:30 on a Saturday night, the bar was completely shuttered and I could not get a beer or snack after my round ....pretty bad!
