Put these two on separate lines.

BTW, the .wine directory is automagically put into the user home 

Something like this might work:

cd $HOME/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files\ \(X86\)/Google/Google\ Sketchup\ 8\
wine Sketchup.exe

Windows programs tend to look at the current directory before looking 
anywhere else for program specific files.  Blame Microsoft for this, not 
Wine.  Also, you may not need to escape (\) the parenthesis characters.
