About Us


History: Wanaki Golf Course, located in Menomonee Falls, WI, was originally designed and projected to operate as a private club named “The Meadows” and later “Westwood Country Club”, The Waukesha County Park and Planning Commission purchased the semi-developed Wanaki Golf Course property in 1967.

 The property sits on what was an 1800’s sawmill that utilized the current day Fox River at it’s center. Oddly enough, the first documented murder in Waukesha County occurred on this property in 1845 when an argument between sawmill business partners turned bad.

Renovations were done to the initial design and by 1970, Wanaki was able to open 9-holes with the entire 18-hole layout opened in 1971. A new full service clubhouse was opened in 1990 replacing a small starter shack.

The Waukesha County owned course was purchased by the Storms Family in 2020 after a “grass roots” movement and rally from The Wanaki faithful and savewanaki.org in 2019 and 2020 that kept the golf course from bulldozers. The Storms Family operated golf course have added a full service bar and restaurant among other upgrades to the clubhouse, while keeping the course layout and the superb conditions that golfers have come to expect for 53 years.

Updated May 2024- Construction has  begun on a State-of-the-art, year ’round simulator building that will house six “Full-Swing” simulator bays, a bar, and eating area. Wanaki will be offering adult Simulator Leagues, high school simulator leagues, in-house Tournaments, party rentals, among regular reserved and walk-up play. 

We will also plan on using the simulators as a “driving range” for players who wish to warm up before their round, or just to hit some balls when you have a 15-minute gap in your day.

The new addition will have full access to The Turn Bar and Grill.

This highly anticipated opening is scheduled for December of 2024.
