Save Wanaki Golf Course

Waukesha County is planning to close Wanaki Golf Course in their 2020 budget. We cannot allow this to happen. This is not just a golf issue, it is a quality of life issue for Waukesha County and the surrounding areas. Waukesha County claims Wanaki Golf Course is losing money, when they have been actually diverting revenue generated by the course to other uses. If you support family centered activities, then please sign our petition to send our county officials a message to keep the course open.  Wanaki is home to:
