The history of the old west merges with plans for the future of El Paso at the beautiful Butterfield Trail Golf Club. Owned by El Paso International Airport and designed by famed golf course architect Tom Fazio, Butterfield Trail has received numerous accolades including being named the #3 municipal course in America by Golfweek magazine 2009-2015.
Butterfield Trail Golf Club was established in the summer of 2007 by city leaders who were determined to create more than an award-winning, world-class golf course. Their ambition was to make the course into a special place for the El Paso community, open to all for life’s special moments and occasions. Located only a long iron shot from the El Paso International Airport, near a programmed 150-acre industrial park and several partner hotels, Butterfield Trail offers an exciting golf adventure in a convenient setting not too far off the beaten path. The par 72 daily fee golf course is highlighted by natural sand dunes and native flora and fauna. Butterfield Trail features more than 55 feet of elevation changes and the drama of vertical transitions, making each hole a ‘signature hole’. The 18-hole design emphasizes natural topographical features to keep the golfer’s ball in play and manages El Paso’s formidable wind with ‘uphill holes, downhill holes, and carvings into the ground.’
