The History of Colorado Springs Country Club

The only member-owned country club in Colorado Springs, our club features a long standing history of a relaxed, comfortable, and family-friendly atmosphere.

Charted in 1954, Colorado Springs Country Club is a refreshing choice among its corporate competitors. Lifelong friendships formed between members are as much a part of the experience as great golf and beautiful scenery. The vibe is warm, genuine and wholesome—and never fabricated.

The Early Years

Originally the site of the McKnight Dairy Farm, CSCC began with a 99-year property lease from co-founders and then property owners, Dr. Frank Houck and Mr. J. Selby Young. Later, CSCC purchased the property from the Houck and Young estates. In 1955, the Club's only amenities included the original dairy barn which was renovated into a clubhouse and the property's acreage, but the membership had a vision of what CSCC could be. By 1957, a nine-hole golf course was added, and by the summer of 1958, members could enjoy the first of three swimming pools. In 1965, the golf course architectural firm of Harrison, Brauer & Rippel designed and built an additional nine golf holes. At the same time, the Club added a second swimming pool and expanded the clubhouse.

A Second Major Renovation

In 1987, another major project was undertaken which included realigning the playing order of the golf course, building a new golf shop and snack bar facility, and moving the tennis facilities to their current location. A significant challenge was added to the course in 2003, when the firm Phelps-Atkinson Golf Course Design was hired to redesign and rebuild Hole 12. The addition of a lake on this hole allowed the Club to become a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary, a proud achievement for our members.

The Club continues to update its property to ensure members enjoy comfortable and well-maintained facilities. Colorado Springs Country Club truly is a place where friends and family gather.
