Butler National Golf Club is located in the western suburb of Oak Brook, Illinois and features an 18 hole golf course that hosted the Western Open from 1974-1990.
Butler National Golf Club was the creation of the founder of the village of Oak Brook, Illinois, Paul Butler. The golf course was designed by George Fazio and was built on what was previously York Country Club.
In May 2007, Golf Digest rated Butler National No. 21 on its list of “America’s 100 Greatest Courses.” The course plays to a rating of 78.1 and a slope of 152, making it one of the most challenging courses in the Chicagoland area.
“Butler National is every bit as challenging as what you’ll see on the PGA Tour” said Phil Mickelson. “It could hold a major in a matter of a week, given the proper notice.”
