Butler Park Pitch And Putt
The golf : Austinite Douglas Kinser approached
the city in the late 1940s about improving the poor condition of
the land occupied by the former Butler Brick Company. His wish was
granted, and from the former clay mine he created a lush little
9-hole course that now graces a serene, landscaped setting just
south of Town Lake. You can still see where the mine walls dropped
down, as holes 1 and 2 play down into the mine bottom. The design
is simple and most of the holes require only a wedge. This includes
the signature No. 7, which involves a pitch shot over a pond that
fronts the green.
