Curvy streets, mature trees – many green year round, numerous fountains and pocket parks. These are some of the neighborhood features inside the coal Creek golf course community beckoning future home owners.
Back in 1990, with great fanfare locally, the Coal Creek Golf Course opened its doors. Originally designed by Dick Phlep and reinvented following the devastating flooding in 2013 courtesy of Kevin Norby and the Herfort Nerby Golf Course Architects. Notable for Colorado Front home owners, the Coal Creek course abuts several highly sought after residential neighborhoods.
This particular neighborhood is officially made up of Coal Creek Ranch, The Springs and The Island subdivisions.
Before one even enters this enclave, you’ll be presently surprised. First catching perspective home buyers’ attention will be the very large and mature trees – both deciduous and conifer, proudly reaching for the sky along Cherry Street. This wall of green creates a natural barrier of privacy and quiet along the main road running parallel to the community.
That line of landscaping sets the stage for the vision inside the neighborhood. But it also adds a bit of a silencing buffer. Thirty years on, these are some pretty big beautiful trees and nicely maintained foliage.

Louisville Colorado Voted Best Place To Live
No surprise there. Great schools, wonderful community facilities (check out the Community Recreation Center), that Colorado lifestyle and homes with a priceless location: backing to one of the best regional courses.
The streets in the Coal Creek neighborhood are private.
The roads also don’t really go anywhere except within the community. So residents are unlikely to be bombarded with through traffic speeding along seeking a short cut. There is no where to short cut to.
Meadows Park Unofficial Access
Along the eastern edge of residential portion of Coal Creek GC you’ll find sidewalks leading to the wonderful Meadows Park and picnic shelter. This is an unofficial point of entry. Joe Public uses the access from the next community over.
Golfing Water Hazard
Not really. Spread about the neighborhood are several small ponds, rock outcroppings and fountains. It really adds to the ambiance of this subdivision. Some of these water features due about the golf course, though most are just an architectural feature within Coal Creek.
Stone Facades And Mail At Your Driveway
Provided Postmaster DeJoy doesn’t completely destroy our beloved post office, you’ll be sure to enjoy having mail delivery right to your house. Homes have mailboxes at the street. Frequently these mail stations are built to match their owners’ homes. You’ll see brick, stone, stucco finishes in Coal Creek. Big driveways too. It’s a funny thing, but for as big and wide open as Colorado is, I feel like our driveways are generally short stubby affairs. That’s not the case here!
Many homes boast a third car garage – great for your golf cart or all the gear storage you’ll need. Missing from this neighborhood is one feature that seems ubiquitous along the Colorado Front Range. There are no privacy fences. That’s a covenant requirement.
Also different, the neighborhood has enclaves of homes sharing a single driveway.
