What Double Eagle Golf is not: A 9-hole golf course; a regulation 18-hole layout; a location to take your entire set of clubs; or a destination for a buddy trip.
What it is: Memories. This course was the first location I used regulation clubs (even though it was just a wedge & putter). It’s where I took my first date (big time spender & classy guy). We started playing here in the ’60’s when it was The Morrisville Golf Farm.
What it really is: A fun golfing experience for the entire family. Following is what you will find on the historic Snipes Farm located in beautiful Bucks County: 18-hole pitch & putt course with lights (excellent for a first date; not so good for 60 year old eyes); two miniature golf courses; a driving range with lights and heated stalls; and as the scorecard states, a course that you cannot swing your club above waist level.
What else is there: Snipes Farm & Education Center – teaching sustainable farming and reconnecting people to the land; Music at Snipes Farm – hosting a variety of concerts and festivals; and local produce for dinner after a fun day of golf.
What is the correct spelling and pronunciation of Morrisville: To Ed & Mike (the pros at Double Eagle), I’m not sure how the golf ball (pictured above) got into my bag some 45 years ago, but it must be a collector’s item due to the spelling of Morrissville, PA – oops! To my wife Karen who is from Colorado and always makes fun of the way I pronounce Morrisville. When researching in Wikipedia, the very first line shows how to pronounce it in a Philadelphia accent (Mars-ville). Karen, I look forward to your apology at any time!
