Founded over 100 years ago in 1904, WLCC started with 18 holes. We lost 9 in the Great Depression and built a new 9 holes in 1990.
The original 9 were made by God, no bulldozers or back hoes. Every mound, hill and tree are original. The new 9 holes, built in 1990, are interspersed with the original 9. The greens have a reputation to be fast. There are 5 tees on every hole. Every player can enjoy the variety.
Tom Watson and his family summered on Walloon Lake when he was growing up. Tom Watson played golf at the Club on a daily basis. He frequently returns to visit the Club.
His early association with the Club led to the creation of an invitational golf tournament, The Watson Cup.
Tom proudly endorses the Watson Tournament saying, “I have traveled the world playing golf on many great golf courses. I still have a spot in my heart for the wonderful years of growing up and playing golf at Walloon Lake Country Club.”
