The magnificent Button Gwinnett Course with its rolling views of the Vale is a little gem. Based more on an American design with a number of water features spread over the 18 holes this course offers challenges for all categories of golfers. A fantastic finishing hole awaits you in full view of the club house!
The course is named after a former resident and one of the fifty-six men to sign the Declaration of Independence in 1776, cementing his title as one of America’s immortals. His unusual forename was a homage to his uncle Sir Thomas Button, a naval explorer most famous for charting the American northwest coast.
Golfing tips & information
A gentle start to the round with a straight forward drive and a second shot into an elevated green. Handy tip – keep the driver in the bag.
Not a long Par 3 however the prevailing wind makes for a good club selection. Handy tip – it’s further than you think!
A long hole, tree lined on the right then a tricky shot into the green surrounded by water. Handy tip - better to be slightly short of green unless you have only left a short shot in.
A sharp dog leg to the left with water all down the left. Handy tip – take a club off the tee which will give you 200 yds and the black and white fairway marker post is the line.
A sweeping uphill hole slightly dog legged which plays its length, there are a couple of right side fairway bunkers with out of bounds beyond those. Handy tip – the tee can set you off line so ensure you align yourself off the tee correctly.
A blind hole from the tee however with a good drive you can see down to the large Mackenzie green. Handy tip – aim for the black and white post when driving off the tee.
Uphill drive and slight dog leg to the left, the shot into the green is very tricky as it has a very narrow entrance surrounded by bunkers. Handy tip- ensure you leave yourself a shot to the green that you can play between those bunkers.
Slight dogleg to the right playing downhill to an island green. Handy tip - if you don't get a good drive away then play short of the green as there is no bail out area around the green.
Challenging par 3 with water down the left side and a large bunker in front of this green. Handy tip - better to be long!
The most difficult driving hole on this course and then you play into a plateau green. Handy tip - keep straight!
Nice hole playing a dogleg to the right, the green is situated so that any long ball runs off and down a steep slope. Handy tip – aim for the black and white post off the tee.
An excellent long hole with bunker left and right. Handy tip – don’t be long.
A great short hole, however, tricky with bunkers in the middle of the fairway and a very large bunker to the right of the green. Handy tip- leave the driver in the bag.
A reasonably short but severe dogleg hole to the right with trees and water all the way down the right side and the green slightly on a plateau. Handy tip – keep to the left.
Playing your tee shot across a lake of some distance downhill to a semi blind straight hole. Handy tip – just keep to the black and white post.
Designed with the 16th of the Masters in mind, playing over water all the way and a well placed bunker on the right making it a tricky little hole. Handy tip – keep your head down!
Probably the hardest hole on this course with a difficult uphill drive and then playing between the trees to an elevated green. The green is only small and not easy to putt on. Handy tip – aim for the bunker off the tee.
Lovely finishing hole not the longest however having to play over water for your second shot makes it very interesting. Handy tip – keep left of centre with your drive.
