Golf Course Information
Golf came to Butler in 1904 when the Butler Golf Club, a predecessor of the Butler Country Club, was organized. A portion of the Frank X. Kohler farm along Lewis Avenue in Lyndora was leased as a temporary location. Work was started on the greens and tees early in 1905 and six holes were laid out. The greens were sand, an arrangement that proved to be less than satisfactory since it was a simple matter to ensure a putt by making a neat track from ball to cup. This pioneer organization created so much interest in golf that it was soon apparent that larger accommodations were necessary.
On September 27, 1905, a group of interested and far-sighted men made a trip in a spring wagon to Penn Township and purchased the George Huselton farm of seventy acres for $4,500.00. In 1906 work was started on greens and fairways. Even before the Clubhouse was built, lack of shelter did not deter the members who held family picnics in the grove between the twelfth and thirteenth (then the fourth and fifth) fairways, where there was a spring of pure water. The course location was strategically placed along the Three Degree Road on the projected inter-urban electric line of the Pittsburgh and Butler Railway Company.
