Detailed description of Wawonowin Country Club

Wawonowin Country Club is a Semi-Private, 18 hole golf course located in Champion, Michigan.

Wawonowin Country Club first opened for play in 1967. The current golf course replaced the former 60 acre Ishpeming Nelson Mine site in 1967-68 due to caving ground from mining activities.

Mining executives established Wawonowin in 1896. The name "Wawonowin" was chosen because of the howling winds which blew in the valley where the greens were located. Wawonowin is a Chippewa (Ojibwa) word that loosely translates as "Wind Through the Trees"

Wawonowin Country Club is owned and governed by its members. The front nine course and current clubhouse were designed and built by Wawonowin members. The back nine course was designed and built in the mid-1970's. The last major course renovation was done in 1995 by the architectural firm Childs & Associates

Wawonowin Country Club measures 6487 yards from the Back tees and has a slope rating of 122 and a 70.9 USGA rating.

Blue tees: par-72, 6,487 yards, 70.9 / 122

White tees: par-72, 6,330 yards, 70.4 / 121

Red tees: par-72, 5,379 yards, 70.8 / 119

The course is in Champion Township and not in the town of Champion. The course is actually only 3 miles from Ishpeming.

The course conditions are very good and the course is enjoyable the greens are very lush but maybe a little slow.

Would travel: 10-20 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Ranks with the best in this price level
