EAGLE — Just a few months after purchasing what was the Adam's Rib property near Eagle and renaming the property Frost Creek, membership is growing at the golf club. Kevin Denton, the membership director at Frost Creek, expects the number of members to approach 100 by mid-July.

"Membership at Adam's Rib never exceeded 32; Frost Creek has more than doubled membership in the first few months of offering through our founders and referrals," Denton said. "We expect the pace of membership to remain strong throughout the coming months."

'Extraordinary property'

"We are thrilled at the response to Frost Creek and are glad that the community is taking advantage of all that this extraordinary property and club have to offer," said Chad Brue, the head of the Denver-based investment group that now controls Frost Creek. "All the aspects that we have, from private fishing to this unique golf experience, the pool and tennis courts, hiking, biking, being surrounded by (Bureau of Land Management) land — all of this makes Frost Creek a world-class mountain retreat."

Denton said people are not joining because of the golf experience alone. One example of the unique privileges of membership is member cabins, which allows members to stay on property in a four-bedroom cabin to enjoy Frost Creek for a long weekend or a full week.

And, Denton said, Frost Creek is by invitation only.

"Our founding members and their referrals are building a unique community," said Denton. "Because of the strong demand for local and national memberships, we'll be raising our membership price in the near future. It's a great situation to be in, but it's not too late for prospective members to take advantage of our initial membership pricing."

The Frost Creek property and the country club comprise 2,655 acres, including an 18-hole Tom Weiskopf-designed golf course, a 16,000 square foot golf maintenance facility, a 40,000 square-foot clubhouse with Olympic-sized pool, a tennis court and on-property fishing rights along Brush Creek. Also included in the purchase were five new-construction spec-homes, five member cottages, 91 finished residential lots ranging from 3.6 to 9.9 acres and a working 1,553-acre ranch with water rights on Brush Creek.
