Button Hole on NPR

A short course for kids, the transformation of a scarred sand pit and a "give back" to a game many of us love was surely enough motivation to build a now nationally acclaimed junior golf course and teaching facility in an urban corridor. Little did we know that in just 12 years we would have touched the lives of more than 15,000 kids. Watch the video to see how we have become such an important community resource.

Button Hole Is Accessible to All

Button Hole’s nine holes and driving range underwent an extensive renovation project in 2013 that resulted in making Button Hole one of the few completely accessible courses for the disabled.  Funded through a grant from the Wadsworth Charities Foundation of Chicago, IL, grants from the Roy T. Morgan Foundation and Andrade-Faxon Charities for Children and generous gifts from individual donors, Button Hole is a facility that provides programs and access for everyone.


Driving range, Golf course and practice areas are open daily 9:00am - 4:30pm
