Chevy Chase Club

Chevy Chase Club is a distinctive social institution that, since 1892, has provided its members, their families and guests with recreation and refuge from the stresses of daily life in the environs of the nation’s capital. The Club’s remarkable gardens, grounds, athletic venues and clubhouse facilities offer year-round enjoyment for all ages.

The celebration of family, a tradition of civility and a commitment to excellent facilities and services will always be the hallmarks of Chevy Chase Club.

Chevy Chase Club is known for its privacy, and the club does not typically host outside events. The MAAGCS is thus honored to have the opportunity to play this historic course. Thank you Dean Graves, CGCS for arranging this special treat!

The event is limited to a firm 120 players and will sell out, fast, so be sure to register ASAP to guarantee your spot in the tournament.

Tournament History

The Stewards of the Chesapeake event was established in 2000 by the MAAGCS in order to develop a primary source of funding to support local research projects, support environmental efforts, and government relations as they pertain to the golf industry. The tournament has also provided a great opportunity for MAAGCS members to invite their club or company officials to participate in the event for the preservation and improvement of both the game of golf and our environment. The tournament has raised over $200,000 since its inception, and proceeds benefit the Maryland Association of Green Industries (MAGI), various Universities, the GCSAA and other groups supporting environmental issues, such as the Chesapeake Bay Foundation.

In 2017 the proceeds from the Stewards of the Chesapeake were used to help fund the Maryland Association of Green Industries. MAGI advocates on our behalf to help endorse the benefits of our industry with local, state and federal legislators.  In addition, beginning in 2018 the MAAGCS committed $25,000 over 5 years to The University of Maryland Turfgrass Pathology Research Fund. The purpose of this fund is to support turfgrass research infrastructure, such as campus labs and the Paint Branch Turf Research Facility. The fund also directly supports the turfgrass pathology position.

The event is open to all MAAGCS members, their friends, colleagues (club professionals, GMs, board members) and associates at golf clubs in and around Maryland, Washington, DC, and Virginia.
