Preview of El Paso's Butterfield Trail

Butterfield Trail Golf Club is scheduled to open in May as the newest public course in El Paso.

Owned by the city's Department of Aviation and managed by Kemper Sports, Butterfield Trail Golf Club was designed by famed architect Tom Fazio. The course sits near El Paso International Airport and will be the centerpiece of an area that is being developed to include a resort hotel and industrial park. (Now that's what I call a "mixed use" community.)

The club is named for the trail followed by the Butterfield Overland Mail Route, which was in operation from 1858-61. Part of the trail's 700 miles in Texas and 2,800 miles total runs through the golf course property.

The golf course is a par 72 that will tip out at just under 7,300 yards, with other tees playing to 6,850, 6,501, 6,071 and 5,119 yards.

More info about the course is available on its Web site at www.butterfieldtrailgolf.com.
