Best Big Fun With The Grandparents

Butler Pitch & Putt

Yet another amazing gift from our Parks and Recreation Department, each hole at Butler is about a third as long as a standard one and clubs are available for rent. A real golfer can get on the green with a wedge, then putt into the hole, practicing the critical short game. For a beginner or a kid, this "baby course" offers the opportunity to skip past the boring lessons and hours on the driving range and go straight to the fun. You've got your fairways and roughs, your water hazards, your little joys and frustrations. You get the fresh air, the camaraderie, the suntan. You get triumphs like that sixth hole, where our tee shot hit the edge of the green, and we actually putted in three.
