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.

Totally rained out

I played on a Friday and the course was soggy because it rained for the past two days. Couldn’t take the carts off the cart cause of the rain. Then was going to play the next day and it rained heavily where you would not be able to play. They should have closed the course. I thought I would get my money back from golfnow cause of the conditions but no luck

Too slow

The most difficult thing to manage at a course is speed of play. You don't want to be rude to paying customers. However, when speed of play is not enforced, what happens is 20 customers end up having a negative experience. We waited an average of 4 minutes, that's an average, on every tee box and the group behind us came up to our tee box on most holes because two groups ahead of us were slow. It just really impacts your rythem and enjoyment of the round. It was a big negative as we saw nobody trying to help enforce these simple rules.

One of my favorite Chicago land courses for the price

Really nice and open course. Fairways and in good condition. The course was a little wet due the rain the night before. Cart path only today. But the staff are friendly, the clubhouse is attractive and I would highly recommend this course to others. For the price it is hard to beat this golf course. It was a 30 minute drive for me, but well worth it.
