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 just had our wedding at Chevy Chase a few days ago. The first thing I wanted to do was write a review because of how amazing everything was. Jan, Wendy, Walt and Joe were all great to work with! It was the most reasonable/best value venue we looked at. The Grand Ballroom is absolutely beautiful and unique. We got so many complements from our guests about the room, the food, the service, you name it and it was perfect! Choosing Chevy Chase was the best decision we made!

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.
