This weekend marked some big moves for the dawgs. Butler Club Golf completed our second fall 2019 tournament at the Blackthorn Golf Club in South, IN.
In battle against two other teams, Indiana, and IUPUI, Butler ended up on top. Butler A won first place by a 48 stroke margin, shooting a 405 for the day. Butler B ended tying for third place with Indiana, both shooting a 458. Butler also had 6 players in the top 10- an amazing feat for the team.
This tournament marks an amazing end for the dawg’s fall season. It’s now time to practice, prep, and get excited for the upcoming spring season.
That’s a wrap! Butler Club Golf completed our first fall 2019 tournament at the Harrison Hills Country Club in Attica, IN. On both days the team battled formidable wind but was able to rise against the challenges it brought on the course.
Butler A was very close to securing a podium spot, only 1 stroke behind Notre Dame’s team by Sunday. In the end, Butler A finished in fourth and Butler B finished in 6th place.
Overall, the NCCGA Regional Tournament 1 was a great beginning to this fall season that leaves room to grow stronger as a team. Moving forward, it’s time to continue improving to get ready for our next Tournament on October 6th at Blackthorn Country Club.
There were great scores out of the clubhouse by many Butler players this weekend. Here’s a few players who had fantastic rounds:
Tune in a week to see updates from the NCCGA Regional Tournament #2!
Butler Club Golf travelled up north to Swan Lake Resort in Plymouth, IN for our first
tournament of the season. The Indiana National course gives way for anything but an easy
round. Even with challenging conditions, the dawgs rocked through the first round. Sophomore

the clubhouse after round 1.
By round 2, Butler A moved from 5th to 4th place in the tournament by shooting an
overall 816. Butler B placed sixth with a 944. Josh Mullenix, a junior, placed 10th overall for a
score of 12 over (156). Colin O’Hern played another amazing round and ended with a score of 2
Playing with strength through numerous challenges, the dawgs were able to have a
steady spring start and a strong momentum that will most definitely carry over to the second
regional tournament at Coyote Crossing.
Butler Club Golf is coming back and better than ever for this spring season. Spring callouts confirmed a promising roster with new and old players gearing up to take victory. With two regional tournaments and a goal to move onto the National Championships, these dawgs will stop at nothing to get there. In a little over three weeks on March 30-31, Butler will play at its first tournament of the year- the Regional Tournament #1 at Coyote Crossing Golf Course in West Lafayette, IN. That next weekend on April 6-7, the Regional Tournament #2 will be played at Indiana National’s Swan Lake Resort in Plymouth, IN. This tournaments has incredible potential and Butler Club Golf is more than ready to bring home some hardware for this new spring season. Stay tuned for more Club Golf action!
Club Golf went into unknown territory in Eau Claire, MI where we played at Indian Lake Hills Golf Club over the weekend of October 6th-7th. The team performed very well bringing home the runner up trophy trailing only the host team, Saginaw Valley State by 8 strokes. Strong rounds on Saturday and Sunday in wet and sloppy conditions put the team within striking distance to take home 1st place but Saginaw Valley State played a bit better both days to secure first place. After this tournament, the team will have one more chance to play well and try and bring home another trophy for the Fall semester at Purgatory Golf Club in the NCCGA Regional Tournament #2! Go Dawgs!
Butler Club Golf has played in one tournament so far last weekend at Harrison Hills Country Club in Attica, IN! Performance was up and down for the two days but overall we played well! This upcoming weekend, we are headed to Indian Lake Hills Golf Club in Eau Claire, MI to take on a few teams from Michigan and see how we rank up against some of these fellow clubs! After that, Club Golf will play in one more NCCGA tournament at Purgatory Golf Club the weekend of October 27th and 28th in Noblesville, IN to wrap up our season.
This semester has been one of growth for the club and we could not be more excited to see how much more we can grow and hopefully begin to take on some of the best clubs in Indiana!
Butler Club Golf sits in second place as a team after day one at the Birck Boilermaker Golf Complex. The Kampen Course, which plays host to Big Ten Golf Championships, proved to be a tough test for the Bulldogs. John Milner set the pace for Butler in the first round carding a 9-over 81. He currently sits in a tie for fourth. The other four scores for the Dawgs on day one included three rounds in the 80s and one round in the 90s. The University of Notre Dame’s A team leads the tournament by 19 shots after day 1. The Kampen course only conceded two rounds in the 70s all day. With temperatures getting a little warmer on Sunday, and one round under the belt, Butler looks to make a final round run for the top spot in this year’s final regional tournament.
Due to cold Indiana weather, Butler Club Golf is just now getting out on the course to compete against fellow club golf teams from Indiana schools! We have all been itching to get out there and play some golf! Good luck to everyone playing this weekend at the Birck Boilermaker golf complex at Purdue University! Represent us well! #GoDawgs
