“The work and passion Butch has showed towards my son Justin has been extraordinary.  Whether it is on course management, short game technical skills or emotional intelligence.  Butch has made a tremendous difference in Justin’s game”

“I would highly recommend Plain English Golf to any golfer seeking to improve.  My son, Mason, has worked with Butch English for more than five years and has advanced his skills significantly. Butch is an excellent coach and serves as a mentor to young men."

Colin Bain

Butch and I established a few goals that would allow me to improve as a golfer. After working with him, I started to improve and make progress weekly while establishing a friendship with someone who carries a tremendous passion for the game.  Over the last year and a half, I was able to lower my handicap to a 6.2 index."

Training Facility

Butch trains at Sunset Hills Golf Course. Sunset Hills is a unique combination of golf that dates back to the roots of golf in America. Many people learned to play the game on low cost, inexpensive and fun to play publicly owned courses. Most of these facilities have either closed or experienced renovations that made them more difficult AND expensive, neither of which appeals to most golfers. Sunset Hills offers two distinctly different courses that fill the need for an inexpensive, fun and NON-INTIMIDATING round of golf. Each offers something for golfers of all skill levels, and does so for a price that is unmatched ANYWHERE! | (704) 787-1103
