Nicknamed "The Prince" due to a claim of a distant royal connection, Chisholm was selected in the Northern Territory team of the year for 1992 and 1993, and the NTL representative sides in 1993 and 1994. He was voted the side's best player in 1994 and played in three consecutive Grand Finals between 1992 and 1994.
Late in 1994 he joined Claremont under future Dockers coach Gerard Neesham and played in the last four games of the season including a Grand Final loss. Neesham then recruited him to the Dockers where he finished third in the 1996 Best and Fairest and played state football for the Allies.
After disappointing 1997 and 1998 seasons he was traded to Melbourne for 1999, and in just his second game was embroiled in a racial abuse controversy with St. Kilda's Peter Everitt. The Saint was fined $20,000 and recieved/imposed on himself a four match suspension for the incident.
Chisholm topped the club Brownlow Medal count in '99 but despite having an impressive 2000 pre-season campaign - including three goals from full-forward against St Kilda - he only played one senior game in 2000, the first match of the year, before suffering a corked thigh which put him out of the side. He failed to win his way back in and won a premiership with Sandringham at the end of that year, but was delisted soon after. In a game during June that year he put in a claim that he had been racially vilified but later withdrew the complaint.
After his time with the Demons ended, Chisholm returned to St Marys before crossing to the WAFL to join South Fremantle where he played 30 games between 2001 and 2003, including a Grand Final loss in his first season.
He later coached the South Fremantle women's team to a premiership in 2009.
