Our Button Gwinnett course is based on an American design and features 13 lakes

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.
