WANAKI JUNIOR GOLF HISTORY

Wanaki Golf Course has been offering Junior Golfers opportunities to learn, grow their game, and compete at a high level since the 1980’s. The current Junior League, which started in 1978, has given 200-300 juniors per year the opportunity to learn the game of golf and enhance their skills while participating in a fun and healthy atmosphere. Our Junior Lessons teach hundreds of kids per year the basics of golf from beginners to serious competitors.

Wanaki has been the home of many area High School Golf teams throughout the years and is proud to host many Tournaments including the Waukesha County Boys and Waukesha County Girls High School Championships, The Brookfield Central Bestball, The BC/Homestead Girls Invitational, The Brian Schroeder Memorial, Conference Tournaments, and W.I.A.A Boys and Girls High School Regional and Sectional Tournaments.

Wanaki is also the home to a team in the Nationally recognized PGA Junior Team Series. Many young golfers who still play competitively at the college level, Amateur Tournament Level, and PGA level started their competitive Golf Careers in Junior Programs or in High School Golf at Wanaki.

In 2015, the three top individual golf competitions in the state of Wisconsin were won by players who strolled the fairways of Wanaki as Junior Golfers:

 

  • Wisconsin State Open Champion- Kyle Henning
  • Wisconsin State Amateur Champion- Eddie Wajda
  • Wisconsin State Public Links Champion- Tom Halla
FUN TID BIT!

“Wanaki is proud to be a ‘Generational Golf Course’. Players who played here in the 1970’s and 1980’s are now watching their Grandkids play competitive High School Golf. Junior Golfers who were once dropped off by their parents to play Junior Golf are now dropping off their own children to experience the fun they had years ago. The History of Junior Golf here is legendary, Thank You for being a part of it.”
