About Us:

Warwick Hills Golf & Country Club, located in Grand Blanc Township, Michigan, has a rich history dating back to its founding in 1957. Originally established as a private golf club, Warwick Hills quickly gained recognition for its challenging course designed by Joe Lee.

In 1958, Warwick Hills hosted its first major professional tournament, the Michigan Golf Classic, which later evolved into the Buick Open. This tournament became synonymous with Warwick Hills, drawing top players from around the world and garnering significant attention within the golfing community.

Over the years, the Buick Open grew in stature, attracting large crowds and contributing to the club’s reputation as a premier golfing destination. Many legendary golfers, including Tiger Woods, Vijay Singh, and Ben Hogan, have competed at Warwick Hills, adding to its storied legacy.

In addition to professional tournaments, Warwick Hills has also been a venue for various charitable events and community initiatives, further embedding itself into the fabric of the local community.

In 2018, Warwick Hills underwent renovations to enhance its facilities and improve the golfing experience for members and visitors alike. Despite the Buick Open ending in 2009 due to sponsorship changes, Warwick Hills continues to uphold its tradition of excellence in golf and remains a cherished institution in Michigan’s golfing landscape.
