Birdsfoot Golf Club

225 Furnace Run Road
Freeport, PA 16229


The golf Course is located on a part of Buffalo Creek Farms, Which was owned by the late Alexander H. Lindsay and his wife Betty G. Lindsay. Alexander H. Lindsay was a practicing attorney and was active in a number of civic causes, including the promotion of the Allegheny Valley Expressway. He was also a farmer and was fascinated with agronomy. When it came to raising hay, his favorite was birdsfoot trefoil, not only because it produced green, high quality hay, but also because it was a perennial performer, that would return year after year, often having a life far beyond two or three year life of other forage crops, such as clover and alfalfa.

Birdfoot trefoil is the only genus of the lotus group which is widespread in America. It is not to be confused with the greek name lotus which was applied to a number of different plants which were used by the legendary "lotos-eaters" to induce dreams and oblivion. Nonetheless, birdsfoot trefoil is a plant which has certain legendary, mystical qualities.
