Butch Benton

Director of Golf

Butch’s background is somewhat unique in-so much as he Played Professional Baseball from 1975-1990 with the Mets, Cubs, and Indians. Upon retiring from baseball, “Golf” became his passion and dream and his pursuit led him to the PGA with hopes of becoming a Golf Professional, which he ultimately accomplished. Butch became our Director of Golf and Operations 7 years ago, with stops at Citrus Spring Golf and Country Club, Eagle Ridge Golf Club and Country Club of Silver Springs. We are pleased to have his Professionalism and Leadership here at Black Bear.
