A 1920s era Tom Bendelow design, the former Chevy Chase Country Club underwent an extreme make-over to revitalize its deteriorating condition. Major flooding problems, coupled with poor drainage, virtually no irrigation, and struggling greens were responsible for the initiative. Lohmann Quitno’s plan called for a major drainage overhaul, the construction of 19 new greens to USGA recommendations, contoured bentgrass fairways, new bunkering and a state of the art irrigation system. Along with the physical upgrades, the Wheeling Park District-owned course was also re-branded as “The Traditions” and now competes in the high-end Chicago golf market.  The icing on the cake, though, was Golf Inc.’s recognition of Traditions as the 2004 Daily-Fee Renovation of the Year.

Original architect:  Tom Bendelow (1925)

Testimonials

“Comments about the renovation at Westmoor have been overwhelmingly positive and many in the community, who are not members, have expressed their desire to be invited to play. We cannot thank Bob and Todd enough for maintaining their patience for so many years. I am pleased that our companies have such a mutually beneficial relationship and together we have persevered through some difficult challenges to create an outstanding golf facility.”

Joseph C. Coan, CCM
Chief Operating Officer, Westmoor Country Club

"As Golf Course Superintendent at Tippecanoe Lake Country Club, it has been my pleasure to be involved in two major projects with Bob and Todd, both completed on time and at budget. The Lohmann Quitno team is wonderful to work with, and our membership is very pleased with the results. In fact, our membership has grown since the completion of the projects and the excitement has them continuously asking me: ‘What's next?’”

Ronald J. Forks
Golf Course Superintendent, Tippecanoe Lake Country Club

“Like any facility contemplating a project, we had a vision of what we wanted. It takes a talented and focused company to interpret someone else’s vision and provide a product that compliments it exactly. The Lohmann Quitno team has that talent and focus. They provided us with a facility that meets every expectation we laid in front of them and one that we are extremely proud of. The foresight, planning and execution Bob and Todd brought to the table positioned Indian Creek well for many years to come.”

Jim Nedrow GCS
Superintendent, Indian Creek Golf Course

“During the past 25+ years I have worked directly with Bob and Todd at both of our golf facilities on a diverse range of projects. The Lohmann Quitno team has demonstrated a passion and commitment to meeting or exceeding our expectations on each project. They understand the unique challenges that we face at each of our golf facilities and develop solutions that meet player expectations and that are cost effective. They have been a big key to our success!”

“Lohmann Quitno and their staff worked very hard to exceed the expectations of our membership resulting in the largest grounds project at Fort Wayne Country Club in recent history. We could not be happier with the leadership provided by Bob and staff for the concept, design and follow through.”

Brian C. Chalifoux
Golf Course Superintendent, Fort Wayne Country Club

“The work that we have accomplished to date has been extremely well received by our members. Our board of directors, golf course superintendent, and I are so happy with our working experience with Todd that we are now preparing to embark on a complete long-term master plan for the entire facility. We eagerly look forward to a continued partnership with Lohmann Quitno.”
