Gleneagle Colorado Springs CO Golf Neighborhood

The Gleneagle neighborhood on the northeast side of Colorado Springs CO real estate features an 18-hole Frank Hummel-designed golf course and The Gleneagle Golf Club.  Gleneagle boasts an extensive selection of condominiums and single-family homes in Colorado Springs, Colorado with panoramic views and large old-growth trees.

Nearby, the equally inviting Colorado Springs CO subdivisions of Black Forest, Jackson Creek, and Falcon join residents of Gleneagle Colorado Springs real estate who hike through the Ponderosa pine forests and wildlife havens of Fox Run and Black Forest regional parks as well as Palmer Park.  Mule deer, porcupines, red fox, and black squirrels share the terrain with hikers, mountain bikers, horseback riders, snowshoers, and cross-country skiers.  Within two hours, residents of real estate in these Colorado Springs’ Front Range communities can find ample winter recreational pastimes in Park County and in the major ski areas in Summit and Vail counties in the Rocky Mountains along Interstate 70.

With four sets of tees, the 18-hole Par 72 Gleneagle golf course features the “Best Views and Best Greens” in the area.  The semi-private Gleneagle Golf Club, originally opened in 1972 as a private venue, became public in 1991, and now offers over 200 members golf, a pool and social memberships, including a Premier Eagle status.  In 2004, the Club changed management and rebuilt all bunkers, hosting a U.S. Pro Tour event in 2006 and in 2007 the swimming facilities and clubhouse were renovated.

Conveniently located just off of Interstate 25 at an elevation of 6,926 feet in El Paso County, various modes of transportation, such as the nearby airport, highlight the easy access to employment and recreational options from Gleneagle.  The Peterson Air Force Base, Fort Carson, Schriever Air Force Base, North American Aerospace Defense Command, and the Air Force Academy create a strong military presence.  Of course, the top industries—military, government, tourism, and high-tech—along with other supporting services offer ample employment options.

With shopping at Jackson Creek Shopping Plaza and community events like the Festival of Lights Parade and the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, Gleneagle provides a sense of community within the larger city scene.  The location directly across from the Air Force Academy also provides opportunity to attend annual community events like football and hockey games, musicals, concerts, the planetarium programs, and much more.

Residents and their guests also enjoy cultural experiences at the Western Museum of Mining and Industry with its research library, artifacts and tours and tourists spots like the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, the Garden of the Gods, the Cave of the Winds, Pikes Peak Cog Railway, and the U.S. Olympic complex.

In addition to the activities and amenities at the Gleneagle Golf Club, community members depend on a strong HOA to enhance the quality of life.  The HOA enforces covenants, reviews architectural changes, disseminates information, and educates residents about issues affecting their homes and property values.  They also organize volunteers who are interesting in helping in the community.

Families are served by the Academy School District #20.  Antelope Trail Elementary and the Air Academy High School are very close to the community.
