One of the city's most prestigious neighborhoods, Country Club - occasionally referred to as "Denver's Spanish Suburb" - is also among the most scenic.
Stately Spanish gateways and lush gardens stand sentry-like at the entrances to the elegant community as if to protect the rural ambiance of its quiet streets. The gates, parkways, and many of the area's homes were designed by architects William and Arthur Fisher, renowned for their refined Mediterranean designs, a sensibility that Arthur acquired during his sojourns through southern Europe. During the late 1800s, the area was given over to farms and sporting facilities. The Gentlemen's Driving Association, whose illustrious membership included Horace Tabor and Walter Cheesman, planted hundreds of trees near 4th Avenue and Corona and built a half-mile track, a two-story clubhouse, along with stables for sulky racing.
Gala parties were quite common and were races frequently enlivened by a bass band. But as interest in racing waned, the Driving Association directors sold out, to be succeeded by a second group of sports-minded Denverites, the Overland Park (Golf) Club. Seeking a new venue, the members incorporated as the Denver Country Club in 1901 and acquired a 120-acre tract near Cherry Creek.
The original clubhouse opened on New Year's Day 1905, and the lush new fairways, designed by architect James Foulis, Jr. quickly acquired a sterling reputation.
