History of Gleneagles Village
Highlands Ranch lies along the northern tier of Douglas County, Colorado.
This community became a Master Planned Community of 22,000 acres with the Mission Viejo Company as the developer in 1978. Gleneagles Village is located within Highlands Ranch and surrounds the Links Golf Course, a public executive golf course.
The first residents of Gleneagles Village moved in October, 1985 to Shetland Court. The intent of Mission Viejo was to build mostly attached units but demand for single patio homes prevailed. Mission Viejo stopped building in GEV in 1987 at a total of approximately 160 units. In 1983 Richmond Homes acquired the rights to complete the construction of residential units in Gleneagles Village and built out the community at 345 units.
Mission Viejo had control of the GEV Homeowner’s Association in the early years with a resident representative on the Board of Directors. GEV residents took full control of the Board of Directors in 1989.
The 10th anniversary of GEV was celebrated with the Highlands Ranch High School Marching Band playing as most of the residents brought their chairs or blankets to watch as they marched the length of Canongate Lane.

The purchase of a piano for the Club was made during the first years by the residents sponsoring different contests or selling T-shirts to raise the needed funds.
The parking lot at the Club was expanded due to the completed build out of GEV and the increased population. More handicapped parking spaces were also provided.
Expansion of the Club was started in 2003 with the remodeling of the kitchen, expansion of the main room and the addition of a room that now contains two pool tables, ample room for card tables and a library for books donated by the residents. This was done with no increase to the monthly assessment of homeowners because of adequate reserve funds. A Club Director or additional staff is present during the hours that the Club is open.
