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.

Good Except for Aeration

Chevy Chase provides a nice round of golf at a reasonable price on a well-maintained course. Unfortunately, aeration was in progress for some fairways and had been recently completed on greens, accounting for reduced cost. However, despite this, all leaves were being kept off the fairways and those not being aerated were in excellant condition. The re-do of this course to prevent flooding was largely successful and I would recommend giving it a try.

Did not play

Pretty sure GolfNow charged me for this round. We did not play because my playing partner is 78 years old and because the weather was so bad the course told us that several holes had been modified to par 3's because of rain. Also because it was cart path only which is too hard for a 78 year old man especially on that course. There was standing water in the fairways and in the bunkers because it rained all Friday night and most of Saturday morning. Rain continued on and off throughout the day. Conditions for an enjoyable and fair golf round were non existent. Yet because someone made a decision not to close the course GolfNow and Chevy Chase get to keep my money. Pretty despicable. I even tried to call to explain our situation and cancel. No help there. Just sent me to a nameless, faceless website that could care less. Thinking very seriously about no longer using GolfNow

Not worth the $

When Chevy Chase was remolded the drainage system was replaced but still standing water. Cart path only for $47 too much $. Over priced all the time

rude employees and very slow

every person I spoke to as I was registering at the pro shop, getting my cart, and the starter were very off putting, and unfriendly. the start times are too close. I was teamed with 3 other people to make a foursome and we were waiting 10 min on each T for the next group to move up. the same was true for the group ahead of us. I paid for 18 holes but after taking just over 3hrs to play 9 I had enough and left. when I returned the cart I complained about the pace and was told that I should try another course next time, I'm never going back. there are plenty of quality courses around that respect their customers and proper pace of play.

Well maintained course in a beautiful setting

Just played this course yesterday and would definitely play it again. It is very well maintained and in a beautiful wooded setting. It has a nice variety of holes that test your skills but still make it so that an average player can score and have a lot of fun in the process. I highly recommend this course if you’re in the area.

Sporty course in great condition. Smooth, fast greens, well bunkered. Fairways were smooth with few divots. You'll use every club in your bag and have a great time!

Great local course

It was cart path only. Never a fan of this, but the course was wet and understandable.

This caused problems with the fore some behind us. One of their players was using an amplified music player. We he left the cart he was unwilling to turn down the loudness . We asked him to do so. He became belligerent and wanted to start a fight with my son in law. After calling the pro shop someone came out. Those folks ignored the ranger. The turned it up on other holes. Called again but no one came. I think there should be a policy against amplified music at traditions.
