Cherry Hills Village blossomed around the William Flynn-designed Cherry Hills Country Club. Incorporated in 1945, it is one of the most affluent communities in Colorado and the country. With an average home price in the millions, this luxurious community boasts high-end single-family homes and some of Colorado’s most opulent estates. No condos, townhomes, or multi-family dwellings can be found within its city limits.
There are nine public and private golf courses near Cherry Hills. The Country Club has hosted several PGA and LPGA Major Championships, most recently the 2005 U.S. Women’s Open Golf Championship. The nearby High Line Canal offers a series of hiking, biking, and equestrian trails; the cottonwood-lined paths offer a scenic journey through plains, sprawling estates, parks, and the noted golf courses.
Some interesting people and stories were born from Cherry Hills Village—it was once called home to two former Secretaries of State, Madeline Albright and Condoleezza Rice, and legend has it Arnold Palmer grew angry with a bartender at The Country Club for refusing to mix his namesake drink of iced tea and lemonade!
