   Since 1969, Perry Park Country Club has persevered through the ups and downs of the golf industry.  Through the determination of its members it has maintained the exceptional golf experience that defines the course, with its expertly designed layout and location in an area of timeless beauty. 
 
   Since its inception, the club has been member-owned.  The ownership by its members has seen the club provide affordable and exceptional golf for more than 45 years.  Along with assuring that the decisions  about the club’s operations and future are made for the benefit of its members, it has established a sense of community that bonds its members to the club and to each other. 
 
   Located near Larkspur, Colorado, in a region where formations of red, pink and white sandstone thrust their pinnacles through forests of pine, (similar to Garden of the Gods and Red Rocks amphitheater) this unique course, designed by Colorado golf architect Dick Phelps (Phelps Bio),  has captured the imagination of high handicap and scratch golfers alike. Located by pristine Lake Wauconda, with fairways winding among the red rocks and pine forest, the course provides a variety of scenic views that add another dimension to the enjoyment of the game of golf.
 
   This course is designed for golfers of all skill levels, with tee positions from 4816 to 6927 yards, allowing each member to tailor the course to their greatest enjoyment. (Course Tour)  In the early years, the course was only 11 holes, two being on played on the same fairway, but from different tees.  Later, land was acquired to expand the course to its current 18-hole configuration.  Importantly, it has been consistently updated to meet the needs of the modern game.  Though there are significant elevation changes throughout, this is a very walkable course. Both private carts and walking carts are allowed. 
 
   Adding to the experience is the notable absence of course-crowding homes. The course is framed by Pike National Forest, providing a sense of seclusion and serenity and the appearance of deer, fox, the occasional bear and other Colorado wildlife make each round an occasion.  In short, it’s like a spectacular mountain course, but easily accessible to Front Range golf enthusiasts.
 
   There are various categories of membership that should appeal to about any golfer or business. (Membership Classes)  The club attracts many families, even though there are no pool or tennis facilities. It has a thriving woman's golf program, mens' club and has one of the best junior programs in the area; open to children and grandchildren of its members.
 
   The club is fortunate to have its own senior, 1888 water rights that provide the needed irrigation to maintain its fairways, roughs and greens throughout the golf season. Besides adding to the beauty of the surroundings, Lake Wauconda provides substantial water storage to insulate the club from extended droughts.
 
   Perry Park Ranch, where the course is the center of recreation and dining, has an interesting history (The First Century).  In 1863 it became the 4000-acre cattle ranch of John Perry, president of the Kansas Pacific Railroad.  Through the years, various ventures developed travelers and resort hotels in the area.  In 1891, the Redstone Company engaged Frederick Law Olmstead, the designer of New York’s Central Park and the Boston Commons to plan a resort village with casino, museum/library plus three lakes with separate residential areas.  Though most of the plans never got off the drawing board, a few “cottages” were constructed for wealthy Denver businessmen.  One of these cottages was the Manor House, built in 1889, which today houses the restaurants, pro shop and other facilities of the Perry Park Country Club,
 
   Reaching Perry Park, one drives through some of the finest scenery on the Front Range.  It is the perfect prelude to an amazing game of golf.  Maybe that’s why our members find the drive to Perry Park passes so quickly; arriving relaxed and ready to thoroughly enjoy their game.
