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 NTFL 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 Fremantle coach Gerard Neesham, and kept his spot through to a Grand Final loss. Neesham took Chisholm to the Dockers, where he finished third in their 1996 Best and Fairest and played state football for the Allies. After disappointing 1997 and 1998 seasons he was traded to Melbourne for 1999.
In just his second game at the club, Chisholm was embroiled in a racial abuse controversy with St. Kilda's Peter Everitt. The Saint was fined $20,000 and served a self-imposed four match suspension. Chisholm topped the club's Brownlow Medal count in 1999, but despite an impressive 2000 pre-season campaign - including three goals from full-forward in one game - he only played Round 1. A corked thigh put him out of the side and he failed to win his way back in. Chisholm played in a premiership at Sandringham, but was delisted soon after. In June that year he made claim of racial vilification during a game but withdrew the complaint.
After his time with the Demons ended, Chisholm returned to St Marys before crossing to the WAFL, where he played 30 games for South Fremantle between 2001 and 2003.
Chisholm coached the South Fremantle women's team to a premiership in 2009.
