Traditions at Chevy Chase

TRADITIONS_AT_CHEVY_CHASEOriginally known as The Colombian in the 1920s and then as Bon Air in the 1930s, the Chevy Chase name came to existence in 1949. The course was originally built in 1924 by the Knights of Columbus, it’s now known as Traditions at Chevy Chase.

Located on Milwaukee Avenue in Wheeling, this fantastic club and golf course also offers a grand ball room which has a 5000 sq. foot dance floor and will seat 600 guests. The Gable Room Bar and Grill serves beer and cocktails along with appetizers, sandwiches and burgers.
