The Chicago Curling Club is located in Northbrook, Illinois, about 15 miles north of Chicago. It offers curling for men and women from October through March annually. The club was founded in 1948.[1] Annual tournaments include the Senior Men's Bonspiel (December), the Men's Bonspiel (January) and two women's Bonspiels. In odd numbered years the club hosts a mixed bonspiel in February.

The club hosted the 2010 United States Curling Association Mixed Nationals.[2]

A small room in the club's building houses the American Curling History Museum.[3][4]

Board meetings of the Illinois Curling Association are usually held at the Chicago club mostly for logistical reasons, namely large meeting room availability and central location relative to the other Illinois clubs.[citation needed]
