Cherry Hills Country Club

-A A +A
1923, Merrill H. Hoyt; many additions and remodelings. 4125 S. University Blvd.

James Steck's 80-acre farm became a country club and golf course that helped lure affluent Denverites to the suburbs. A prominent 1920s golf course architect, William S. Flynn, laid out the greens. Hoyt's elongated, angular, Tudor Revival clubhouse is on a hilltop, with dining areas and a lanai overlooking the course and the mountains beyond. The steeply pitched roof has multiple cross gables and is overshadowed by large, elaborate brick chimneys with multiple shafts. The random brick first-story walls contrast with stucco cladding and half-timbering on the second story. An expensive 1961 facelift by local architect Edwin Francis and Cannell-Chaffin Interiors of Los Angeles was followed by another, five years later, by architect Alan Peterson.
