The Founder

Michael Christensen

The Double Eagle Club founder, Michael Christensen, was first exposed to the wonderful game of golf in the early 1960’s during sleepovers at his childhood friend’s house.

His friend, Herb Gillespie, and he would sneak onto the course where Herb’s family lived. Herb’s dad, Dr. Joel Gillespie, belonged to the Green Valley Country Club, in Fairfield, California. Michael and Herb would “borrow” the doctor’s clubs, head to the fairway of the 3rd hole, and begin hitting golf balls toward the green which was located near the Gillespie’s back yard.
