Seasonal Intern


Chevy Chase Club was organized in the fall of 1892 by a group of men from the Metropolitan Club of Washington, D.C., including Francis G. Newlands. For some time, there had been a good deal of sentiment in the Metropolitan Club in favor of a country club where the growing interest in horses, sports and recreation could be pursued. The club would also serve as a social center for members and their families well-removed from the turmoil of the growing city.

The club’ s first permanent location was in 1894 on a tract of land that included a pre-revolutionary frame house known as the Bradley Farmhouse. The game of golf was introduced with six holes at the club in 1895, the same year the USGA was founded. In 1897, the club was able to purchase this 9.36-acre tract on which the Bradley House was situated.

Today, the club offers an 18-hole golf course, golf practice facility, seventeen outdoor tennis courts, four indoor tennis courts, seven paddle tennis courts, a fitness facility, three swimming pools, eight lanes of duckpin bowling, an outdoor ice rink, an eighteen-room guest house, a nature trail and greenhouses. Food and beverage facilities include three clubhouse dining rooms, full banquet facilities, two seasonal sports canteens and a casual dining Winter Center.

The club first introduced golf in 1895 with just 6 holes, which slowly expanded to 9 holes. In 1909, and very early in his career, Donald Ross expanded the existing 9 holes to 18 holes. In 1924 the firm of Colt & Alison re-designed the existing Donald Ross course to the current routing that exists today, with some modifications made by various architects throughout the years.

Beginning in July, the club will close to commence a historic golf course renovation with golf course architect Andrew Green. Interns will play an integral role during the renovation.
