Butler National Golf Club

Private: A course for members and their invited guests only.

Est. 1972

Butler National Golf Club is home to one of the top-rated and finest championship golf courses in Illinois. However, this is a private course generally playable only by its male members and their male guests.

The excellent tree-lined and open parkland layout contains a wealth of wonderfully crafted, memorable and challenging holes. A would-be U.S. Open Championship course, but for its male-only membership policy.
