Rating 71.9
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.

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 !
