Steeped in history and rooted in old-time service, Chevy Chase Country Club in Wheeling is perfect for any event.

Built in 1927, the classic, Tudor-style clubhouse harkens back to a genteel and elegant era when making guests feel welcome was an art form. The Chevy Chase guest services teams have preserved this philosophy. From the moment you arrive, you are encouraged to feel relaxed and indulged in the elegant and historic surroundings. Your comfort is assured in an atmosphere where respect is understood and your name is remembered. The full-service food and beverage and meeting facility offers a professional environment in a clubhouse setting for groups of 10-600.

Situated on 125 acres, Traditions at Chevy Chase Golf Club also stands by a heritage of friendliness and service. Originally designed and built in 1927 by renowned architect Thomas Bendelow, the championship 18-hole golf course recollects the origins of the game of golf. Renovated in 2002 by Bob Lohmann, deep pot bunkers lined with native fescue grasses, generous rolling greens and undulating bent grass fairways, coupled with four sets of tees challenge players of all skill levels. The guest services teams at Traditions take an old-fashioned approach to making your experience memorable, with attentive assistance and flexible accommodations.

Ballrooms:

Grand Ballroom
The Grand Ballroom with its Tudor-style façade maintains its original integrity from the 1920s. The majestic 5,000-square-foot hardwood dance floor, stage area, state of the art sound and lighting system will seat 150 to 600 guests. The Abbey, with its vaulted ceiling and vintage horseshoe bar, provide a comfortable area for gathering and socializing over cocktails and hors d'oeuvres as a prelude to your event. The Ballroom has its own private entrance through the Grand Foyer and access to a private suite upstairs for the bride and her court to relax and refresh.


Devonshire Room
The Devonshire Room will seat up to 200 guests and has access to a 1200-square-foot patio both with panoramic views of our scenic Traditions 18-hole golf course. The room ca be divided into two smaller rooms for groups of 75 to 100, or 30 to 80 guests. A private bar and portable dance floor allows for flexibility in planning your event. Prior to entering the room, you are greeted by our Devon Foyer with warm fireplace and informal seating and greeting areas.

We got married at Chevy Chase on August 23rd, 2014. To start with, we fell in love with the ceremony and reception space! Beautiful patio! Beautiful tudor style interior and exterior! Our photos look wonderful!

It also rained on our wedding day during the morning, and we had our hearts set on a outdoor wedding. It stopped a raining one hour prior to the ceremony and the staff quickly wiped down the whole patio, you wouldn't have know it had just been pouring outside!

The staff was also super accommodating with all of our special requests and arraignments. They also let us stay within their pre-set menu pricing but change things up a bit. We had sorbe instead of a soup dish and we thought that was so much fun! The guests were also raving about the dessert selection and quality of the food - we had the standard dessert package and a dual Chicken dish.

The only major con I can think of is that you're forced to have a late ceremony as Chevy is a golf course and they don't want ceremonies happening while people are golfing. Out ceremony started at 6:30pm, which meant that guests didn't get dinner till around 8:00pm. However, no one complained about that at all!

Chevy Chase was fabulous! We couldn’t have possibly picked a better, kinder, more accommodating group of people to work with! I will forever be grateful to Jan, James, and Walt for making our wedding everything we hoped it would be. We received so many compliments throughout our reception about how wonderful the staff was, how delicious the food was, and how beautiful the venue was. One of the best parts of our whole planning experience was having Jan and James there to support us and listen to us throughout it all. When you visit Chevy Chase, you'll be blown away by the historic beauty of the Grand Ballroom, the grandeur of the old-fashioned bar room, and the splendor of the grounds. You'll also be amazed by the hospitality of the people who work there! They truly want you to have the wedding of your dreams and will work with you to make your day everything you want it to be. When planning a wedding, it is the support of your vendors that makes all the difference, and Chevy Chase most definitely has the best team out there!

Although it was difficult at times to effectively communicate with office staff, the chef and food & bev manager were amazing to work with. Staff were very capable, accommodating, and quick to react. Our DJ blew a speaker as my 4 bridesmaids were walking down the aisle and James (food & bev manager) had an extra speaker on standby, ran it out to the DJ, and music was playing by the time I walked down the aisle. We were very please with our event and would definitely recommend this venue.

I'm so happy to found Chevy Chase after my other restaurant cancelled on me 4months before my wedding. Jan, the manager was so flexible and friendly and Chef Walt and James were great. My husband taught them a 6 courses traditional Vietnamese menu that they've never done and they execute it perfectly. Everyone was so friendly and helpful, and willing to work with you and your budget. The place is huge and beautiful. We got so much compliment for our wedding.

Chevy Chase, what can I say? WOW they were FABULOUS. We couldn’t have possibly picked a better, kinder, more accommodating group of people to work with. I will forever be grateful to Jan, Wendy, Joe, and Walt for making our wedding an honest to God dream come true. I have never heard so many people rave about a single event in my life. The food was INCREDIBLE, the lighting was fantastic, the linens were beautiful, the set-up was beyond my expectation, and above all, the support they provided us over the last 14 months was simply phenomenal! If you visit, the room, the bar, the patio, and basically the entire venue speaks for itself, but I truly cannot say enough about this group of people! When planning a wedding, it is the support of your vendors that truly makes all the difference, and Chevy Chase most definitely has the A Team!

Made the day go incredibly smooth. Couldn't have asked for better service, food, and professionalism. Wendy and Monica were so helpful in accommodating all of our needs. After working in the wedding serving industry for a number of years and eating a lot of banquet food, Chef Walt's food is by far the best I have ever had. You can see he has a genuine passion for what he does. The room was flawless and the bar renovation was awesome. Chevy Chase did a great job keeping the stress level down for both my bride and I.

The location is outstanding. We were able to have the ceremony outside on the patio. All the guests loved it as we had the sunset as a backdrop. Everything was taken care of for us on the day of the wedding. They coordinated with the vendors allowing for us to just enjoy our day. Food is just awesome - anything we tasted. We had guests that have been to several weddings attesting that this was the best food yet. They work with the bakery Lovin Oven for the cake. Getting out there for the tasting is a hike - but it is worth it! We could not have asked for anything more for location, food or service and the prices are very reasonable.

If I could give more stars, I would!!! I can't say enough good things about Chevy Chase! My sister and I went there on a whim; we had started searching for venues 1 year exactly prior to the wedding, and were driving home from many no-gos when we drove past Chevy Chase...we thought, why not? The minute we walked in we were welcomed! Bill gave us a tour and explained all the historical aspects of the building. I brought my mom back, and she loved it. FI works as a manager for a restuarant group downtown, so he was the one that needed convincing...Walt allowed us 2 tastings before we even booked! He was very flexible with the menu, and the dinner turned out better than expected! All the guests raved about the appetizers, service, ambiance, just everything! I worked with Jan throughout the year, and she was absolutely a joy to work with...so many times we just started getting off topic because it was so easy to talk to her...Wendy went over the list with us when we brought in our stuff 2 days before, and was very maticulous in writing everything down. Both she and Jan were very good at remembering and documenting the details (and we had plenty :-)) Monica was there the day of, and was always on top of things. The service was exceptional, there was always someone there when we needed them, with exactly what we needed. I could not have imagined a smoother evening, and the amount of attention to detail (I am a total planner and crazy with my details!) Everyone was so personable, too, during the evening, the bartenders were always in conversation with the guests, making them laugh and yet, still very attentive to everyone else. I felt so comfortable having a great time and just enjoying my evening, because everyone there took care of everything else!!!

This place went out of their way to earn 0 stars. If I could give a negative 5 I would. I had my wedding reception there. The service was good, the food was good... You're think I should give a higher rating right? Well, read on.

It was a big event, and a small thing led to absolute abuse by the staff. The next day we noticed that that cake server given to me by my best man was not returned after we cut the cake, and instead we were given the used /beat up ones the Club has on hand. Again, a little annoying but not a big deal. I went the following day to see if they had it, I assumed it was simply not brougt back out after we cut the cake. Up until now I had a good relationshi with Wendy, the Catering Manager, and her Manager , Jan, above her as well. Well let me tell you, they are a whole lot different after that last check was cut.

I asked them to look for it. She said no, they are not resposible for lost or stolen items. They wouldn't even look! I was a little annoyed, so I told them they are indeed responsible for items they lost or stole regardless of a sign on tthe door, and its a simple matter of looking.

Out comes their real face.

They tell me one of my guests probably stole it, and they looked liked the kind of people who would.

I was dumbfounded... Jan just insulted my family? Why are they putting their foot down over such a small piddley little request. They can't even look for it? That certainly didn't happen before I signed that last check.

I assured her my family would have no interest in stealing it.

She then told me I was probably too drunk to even know what happened to it, I probably didn't even have my own, I just was to far gone to know it.

Again, I was dumbfounded. The only alcohol I drank was for the champain toast, I had far more important things to do that night, like dancing, which I told her in no uncertain terms.

"Dancing?" she said, then followed it by telling me the DJ said we were the worst party they ever had.

At this point I called "shenanigans", I had a great time with the DJ, and even snuck away to get a smoke with him at one point. We had a nice conversation, he was a great guy. I gave him a fat tip, and included him in some fun photos. (I called him the next day, and he said he was in shock by her statement as well, and was furious that she would try to lie about him. They never even spoke he said. He concluded that perhaps they had me confused with another party?)

I let emptyhanded, belittled, insulted, and flabbergasted that they couldn't even look. On to the honeymoon, I'll deal with iot when I get back

I called after the honeymoon told her I have the wedding video, and I can prove that I did have a special serving knife and that it was last seen when they wheeled the cake into the back, and all they had to do was look and see. Maybe they gave it to the other wedding party on accident, can they please call the other bride I asked.

Again Wendy and her boss come with the insults. They say "How dare I tell them how to do their job, they don't have to do a damn thing" I was drunk they said. I never had one they said. My family stole it they said. They aren't looking at my damn video they said"

At this point I was quite upset, and I had enough. I was calling the Wheeling Park District, reporting them for how they treated me, and at least getting the value of the items back (Not that I wanted the money, I just wanted them to either look for it, or call the other bride from the other wedding room)

Finally Jan growls at me .."If I call the other bride and ask, will you leave us the f*&% alone once and for all"

Biting my tongue I agree.

2 days later I get the following terse email from Wendy:

*** No apology for calling my family thieves and drunks, no admitting they were wrong for saying I never had a nice knife, no saying they should have just called earlier without me having to threaten to go to the park district. Just get your knife and server.***

I was insulted personaly, my family was insulted, my wife was insulted by these two.

*****BE WARNED*****

Once your done paying they dont give a rats butt about you. You can forget about it, they don't care. They are the worst professionals I have flat out ever dealt with in their demeanor and attitude. I can not properly describe how awful of people they are. Beyond Terrible. If you could only have seen how they spoke, how little they cared, you would run for another place. Just pray it goes perfect, or you are on your own.

I would highly reccomend you find a better place until Wendy and her Jan get fired, and I am sure they will at some

At this point I was quite upset, and I had enough. I was calling the Wheeling Park District, reporting them for how they treated me, and at least getting the value of the items back (Not that I wanted the money, I just wanted them to either look for it, or call the other bride from the other wedding room)

Finally Jan growls at me .."If I call the other bride and ask, will you leave us the f*&% alone once and for all"

Biting my tongue I agree.

2 days later I get the following terse email from Wendy:

Jeff:



We have the cake knife and server. Come get them.

*** No apology for calling my family thieves and drunks, no admitting they were wrong for saying I never had a nice knife, no saying they should have just called earlier without me having to threaten to go to the park district. Just get your knife and server.***

I was insulted personaly, my family was insulted, my wife was insulted by these two.

*****BE WARNED*****

Once your done paying they dont give a rats butt about you. You can forget about it, they don't care. They are the worst professionals I have flat out ever dealt with in their demeanor and attitude. I can not properly describe how awful of people they are. Beyond Terrible. If you could only have seen how they spoke, how little they cared, you would run for another place. Just pray it goes perfect, or you are on your own.

I would highly reccomend you find a better place until Wendy and her Jan get fired, and I am sure they will at some Read less

My husband and I recently got married at Chevy Chase and everything was fantastic. They have lovely facility with a great staff that will help you to get all of your details aligned and in check. They work with a local bakery and you book the place, the food, a bar and a cake as a package. This made them a much more cost effective option for us. The food was fantastic, the bar generous for whats included although you can upgrade, and the bakery they work with allowed me to design my own cake and they wowed me. high marks all around, Wendy our wedding coordinater through chevy chase provided a good deal of support and advice. definatley would recommend.

If I could give more stars I would! We worked with Jan, Bill, Wendy, Walt and Monica and they all helped to make our wedding the best day of our lives. First off, this is one of the best deals we found in the Chicagoland area. Throughout the whole planning process Jan answered all of our questions quickly and took great care of us; I'm actually sad its over. If I could plan a wedding with them every weekend I would. The price includes tax, gratuity, full bar and cake. You can't find a better deal. We had the Grand Ballroom which is a huge room....and it is beautiful. I have received so many compliments from our guests on the venue, I even have a friend considering having her wedding there as well. The food was excellent...we had the chicken parmesan..I would highly recommend it! I can't say enough about Chevy Chase. The whole staff is very attentive and responsive to your every need. They helped with a special birthday treat I had for my maid of honor and continued to check in with me the whole night. Really I could go on and on...but I think you get the picture :)

We loved it!

1.) The staff really knew their stuff and try hard to help make the planning of the reception easy.

2.) They helped us with a my husbands God-Mothers birthday- had her own cake brought to her as we sang happy birthday.

3.) BUT more then anything they helped me with everything! The day of my wedding the ice scupture didn't have any florals around it, because I forgot to order more... Walt went outside and trimmed some beautiful roses and greenery to trim the ice scupture!

4.) My Uncle had forgot to get my favorite kind of wine, and the staff sent someone got to grab it!!! I am not someone fancy or the type to demand that type of service, they just provided it!

Overall these people are GREAT! With the history of Chevy Chase, as well as the space in the Grandball Room and its BAR! This was a great place to represent my husband and I. Not to mention the outdoor space for pictures turned out great!!

Thank you Chevy Chase! You were the best vendor I worked with!!!!

I can not have imagined having our wedding reception any place besides Chevy Chase. There were so many things that were great, that it is difficult to know where to start. First, I have to say that I think Chevy Chase is one of the best values in the Chicagoland metro area. We looked at 20 to 30 other reception halls all around Chicagoland and Chevy Chase offered some of the best prices and to top it off their, service, food and space are just amazing. Really, really great.

To start the ballroom area is at least 3 to 5 times the size most of the other places we looked at. It has a great space for a band, a nice area for a cocktail reception, a separate room that can be used as a kids room, a bridal suite area and a separate bar area.

The service before the wedding and the night of the wedding were fabulous, very, very accommodating. Everyone was super nice.

For the price, I thought there would be a trade off on the food, but we were very pleasantly surprised by how good the food was and especially the cake.

The one down fall is that it isn't connected to a hotel, but we had a shuttle to and from the Westin that worked out perfectly.

I would recommend Chevy Chase to any couple. I am looking forward to having my baby shower at Chevy Chase hopefully soon!

Chevy chase is a beautiful venue, the golf course is beautifully maintained. The grand ballroom is wonderful. When it is all put together it has such a great look and feel to it. THe coordinators Wendy and Jan were great. Very accommodating. The cost of the room is great. I loved being able to meet the chef at our tasting and ask questions as well as him coming up to visit us during our reception.
