Sean Mack's ATX Adventures: Butler Pitch and Putt

Fore!

Over the week, I finally got to mark off one of my Austin bucket list items-a visit to the legendary Butler Pitch and Putt, just south of downtown.  This little nine-hole gem of a golf course has been an Austin institution for over 70 years.  It's cheap(11 bucks!), short(all the holes are par 3s), and fun for everyone.  My fiance had never played golf before and she was having no problems by the end of the course.

Even on a hot summer day, there are plenty of shaded areas to escape the sun.  There are players of all ages and skill levels, so it's not your usual golf course where you might be a little intimidated if you're a newbie.

And there are beautiful views like this!  We had a blast-go there this summer and keep it in the fairway.
