It's unfortunate that Butler can't host events, since it's a great tournament course. There's so much variety, testing every club in the bag. The par 3's are unique- 6 is a cool long par 3 to an undulating peninsula green. 8 is another peninsula green nestled into Salt Creek. 11 is a demanding short hole to a skinny green with water long and bunkers short. The most interesting thing about Butler is the number of different shots it demands. Three is a tough par 4 which requires a high cut over the strategically placed trees. Nine is a claustrophobic par 4 to a perched up green. 18 is quite possibly the most difficult hole in golf.
