Butterfield named one of top courses in country
Butterfield Trail Golf Club, a Tom Fazio-designed public premium golf course in El Paso, Texas, was recently recognized by Links Magazine as #3 on their list of the “Top 10 Munis in the U.S.” The ranking was the highest for any course in the state of Texas.
“We are pleased to see Butterfield Trail Golf Club once again rated among the top municipal courses in the US by Links Magazine, and consider this testimonial to the Club’s mission of providing a great golf experience right here in El Paso” said Monica Lombraña, Director of Aviation at El Paso International Airport.
After opening in June, 2007, Butterfield Trail Golf Club has quickly become a premium golf destination in the Southwest. The golf course is designed at a par 72, 7,307 yard layout from the championship tees. The property exceeds over 175 acres including natural areas, featuring over 55 feet of elevation changes. Butterfield Trail is the only public premium Tom Fazio-designed course in Texas.
“This recognition is a testament to the extraordinary vision El Paso International Airport has for the future of our great city and passion the staff at Butterfield Trail Golf Club has for delivering a world class golf experience to everyday golfers” said Val D’ Souza, General Manager for Butterfield Trail Golf Club.
Developed and owned by El Paso Department of Aviation, and managed by KemperSports, Butterfield Trail Golf Club is complemented by a spacious practice facility and an 8,800-square-foot clubhouse which is available for catering and private parties. Fazio’s design takes advantage of the distinctive desert topography, including natural sand dunes and native flora and fauna, which highlight the Southwest’s natural beauty. The 18-hole, public golf destination serves as a high-end golf amenity to the airport’s surrounding property and business as well as a catalyst for future commercial development.
In addition to golf, Butterfield Trail is also home to Salida del Sol, a full-service restaurant and bar serving breakfast and lunch daily to golfers and non-golfers alike. Salida del Sol offers indoor and outdoor patio seating as well as happy hour specials seven days a week. For more information on Butterfield Trail Golf Club and El Paso International Airport, visit
