About Wuskowhan Players Club
In 1994, the founders of Wuskowhan Players Club, a premier private club located in West Olive, MI set out to provide a truly great experience for those with a passion for golf. The club would have no swimming pools. No tennis courts. What it would have is a standing, fundamental commitment to provide members with an exceptional living tribute to the game.
The club’s dedication to environmental preservation and stewardship extends beyond its name and philosophy. Wuskowhan was the first course in Michigan to be designated as an Audubon Signature Sanctuary, signifying a commitment to environmental excellence in the management of the land.
Today, the result is a club that, in many ways, brings the player closer to the game of golf and its natural surroundings than any other. The club and the land have grown and matured together, creating the ideal destination for golfers – the true player’s course.
To provide an exceptional golfing and clubhouse experience for those who love the game and to preserve the environment in which it is played.
Dress and act within the Traditions of Golf.
