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.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.

Golf Son Gual

Golf Son Gual is home to a course frequently rated the No.1 layout on the holiday island of Mallorca. Opening for play in 2007, this Thomas Himmel design combines the openness of a links-style layout with the stylish bunkering and not infrequent water hazards more typically associated with parkland courses.

Son Gual is located just a few kilometres from Palma (Mallorca). Palma's Old City shows clear influences from the city's Arab past.
