Chicago Golf Club is a private golf club in the central United States, located in Wheaton, Illinois, a suburb west of Chicago. The oldest 18-hole course in North America and originally located in Belmont, it was one of the five founding clubs of the United States Golf Association (USGA) in 1894.

In the spring of 1893, Charles B. Macdonald, who designed the club's first nine-hole course, increased the number of holes, thus creating the first 18-hole golf course in North America. The club became so popular that, in 1894, the club moved to a parcel of farmland in Wheaton. This new site was chosen by Macdonald because of its vast rolling hills covered with native grasses because they reminded him of Scotland.

Macdonald also designed the new par 70 links-style layout which measures 6,950 yards, and since he was a chronic slicer, he routed the holes so that both nines would play in a clockwise fashion. The United States Golf Association Rule of Golf for "Out Of Bounds" had its origin at Chicago Golf Club.

The club has hosted several prominent events, including multiple U.S. Opens and Walker Cups. In July 2018 the club hosted the inaugural U.S. Senior Women's Open, the newly created 14th USGA national championship.

There are several amenities available to members and their guests in Chicago including a Pro shop that has caddies available for hire and a putting green. The Chicago clubhouse was designed by renowned architect Jarvis Hunt and has both bar and dining options.
