Wanakah Country Club

About the Club: Wanakah Country Club was founded in 1899, and is one of the oldest country clubs in Western New
York. The club is located just fifteen minutes south of downtown Buffalo. The club is currently open ten months of the
year and is very active in the summer months. Wanakah is a family oriented club that has a beautiful 18 hole golf
course, three har-tru tennis courts, two swimming pools, and a charming clubhouse that sits atop a hill overlooking
Lake Erie offering several dining options.

The original golf course designed in 1900 was a nine hole track that was transformed into 18 holes in 1913. In 1925
renowned architect Willie Watson came in and redesigned the 18 hole golf course, which still holds that layout today.
In 2010 the Club adopted a Golf Course Master Plan designed by Arthur Hills and Chris Wilczynski, which will be
complete in the spring of 2018. This 2.4 million dollar project has improved drainage throughout the course, rebuilt
and reshaped all bunkers, rebuilt several tees, added new bunkers and tees, and has enhanced the overall design
and playability of the course. In 2018 the Club will host the New York State Golf Association Mid- Am Championship,
and has already been asked to host the New York State Amateur Championship in 2024. The Club has a very busy
golf calendar from early May through early October, hosting a wide range of golf events.
