El Paso International Airport to close Butterfield Trail Golf Club

El Paso International Airport (EPIA) will close Butterfield Trail Golf Club (BTGC) by May 31, 2020 in order to reduce expenses and focus on essential airport operations.

“It is with a heavy heart that the fiscally-responsible decision to permanently close the course was made.  I am extremely proud of Butterfield Trail Golf Club and the multiple awards it has earned,” said Monica Lombraña, A.A.E., Chief Operations and Transportation Officer.

“I want to thank all of the course’s patrons for their support over the years and KemperSports for maintaining the course to an award-winning level.”

EPIA, in response to the health and economic crisis, has made and continues to make major cuts to operating expenses.

The Airport has subsidized the course since 2008 through revenues generated through non-aviation development; closing BTGC will save the airport about $1 million per year.

Deposits on tournaments and special events will be refunded.
