DURING THE SUMMER OF 2021 I was invited to play Butterfield Country Club in Oak Brook. Later I learned from Tim Cronin the Illinois Golfer, Illinoisgolfer.net who is writing the clubs new history book, that last summer was the 100th season of golf at the club. Even though the club is actually 101 years old.

Congrats to Butterfield Country Club on 100 years of golf, and hopefully at least another 100 years. Less than 10 years ago, architect Steve Smyers did a renovation of the clubs golf course. The course has 27 holes, and can combine them for a routing of almost 7,800 yards. Butterfield would be great for a PGA Tour event.
