Warwick Hills Golf and Country Club is a private country club located at 9057 South Saginaw Road in Grand Blanc Township, Michigan, a suburb of Flint, Michigan, United States. From 1958 to 2009, Warwick Hills was home to the PGA Tour's Buick Open tournament. The course was opened in June 1957.[1] The country club also participates in a caddie program.

The Warwick Hills golf course plays to a par of 72 with a length of 7112 from the championship tees. Tiger Woods and Billy Mayfair jointly hold the course record of 61.

The Associated Press reported July 28, 2009 that General Motors would end its sponsorship of the Buick Open after the 2009 tournament, in order to devote its marketing resources to cars and trucks, thus ending the PGA Tour's association with Warwick Hills.[2]

A booster group for the course is trying to bring professional golf back to Warwick Hills, either with the PGA's Champions Tour, the PGA's Web.com Tour, or an LPGA event.[3]

In 2009, a Michigan Historical Marker about the Buick Open was erected at the course. [4]
