Wölfli made his league debut for Young Boys during their 1999–2000 Nationalliga B campaign. Two years later, limited opportunities with the first team saw him move to FC Thun, where he won promotion to the Nationalliga A and established himself as a good prospect. He returned to Young Boys in the summer of 2003, quickly cementing himself as the Bern club's first choice goalkeeper.
After the retirement of veteran striker Thomas Häberli, Wölfli was named club captain by manager Vladimir Petkovic prior to the 2009–10 season. He is currently the longest tenured player at the club. In November 2010 he extended his contract to last until 30 June 2015.
He earned his first international cap for Switzerland in the friendly match against Finland on 19 November 2008. Diego Benaglio is currently the first choice goalkeeper, with Wölfli and FC Basel keeper Yann Sommer vying for the backup position.
