HISTORY

When homesteader Thomas Bergen arrived in Evergreen, Colorado in 1859, he set up a ranch and stage stop north of present-day downtown Evergreen. Bergen’s Ranch, as it was called, was recognized as a settled area of Jefferson County, Jefferson Territory. Settlers followed after him and homesteaded south of Bergen along Bear Creek Canyon and the downtown area grew around the confluence of Cub Creek and Bear Creek. Another settler by the name of Dwight P. Wilmot is credited with naming the area “Evergreen.” In those days, as legend has it, Evergreen’s pine, spruce and fir forests were so thick you couldn’t walk a horse between the tree trunks. Harvested lumber and processed lumber in Evergreen’s sawmills were sent to Denver for new homes and commercial buildings. The Evergreen farmers raised cattle raised on local ranches, along with the hay, potatoes, and peas and sent them to Denver for sale.

By the 1880s, Evergreen, Colorado’s population exploded to 200 people and six operating sawmills. In 1911, further growth was spurred by improvements of the road from Denver up Bear Creek Canyon and electrical services reaching the town. At that time the town became a popular summer destination for Denver residents. Resorts sprang up like Troutdale-in-the-Pines, Greystone Guest Ranch and the Brook Forest Inn. These resorts entertained Denverites and celebrities including film stars of the day. President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Theodore Roosevelt were know to vacation at the Troutdale-in-the-Pines.

In the 1950s, improvments to utilities in town and the rising popularity of automobiles began to entice more future residents to stay year-round. Ever since that day Evergreen, Colorado is known as a commuter community.

Evergreen Golf Course is located on the west shore of Evergreen Lake west of downtown Evergreen, Colorado. This beautiful golf course wraps around a mountain and cuts through ponderosa pines.

Advanced players will find many opportunities to create shots and discover hole designs that entice risk taking, but demand solid execution.
