Welcome to Button Hole!
Button Hole is a non-profit (501c3) initiative that is funded entirely by public donations. We are dedicated to providing a short course and teaching center focused on kids and "golf, the greatest game."

Please donate now and help us carry out our mission.
Button Hole on NPR

A short course for kids, the transformation of a scarred sand pit and a "give back" to a game many of us love was surely enough motivation to build a now nationally acclaimed junior golf course and teaching facility in an urban corridor. Little did we know that in just 12 years we would have touched the lives of more than 15,000 kids. Watch the video to see how we have become such an important community resource.

Button Hole Breaks Ground on Accessibility Project

Beginning September 5, 2013, Button Hole’s nine holes and driving range will underwent an extensive renovation project that resulted in making Button Hole one of the few completely accessible courses for the disabled.  Funded through a grant from the Wadsworth Charities Foundation of Chicago, IL, grants from the Roy T. Morgan Foundation and Andrade-Faxon Charities for Children and generous gifts from individual donors, Button Hole will construct a facility that will allow for the expansion of a long history of commitment to programs for everyone, including disabled children and their families.
