About the Hillandale Golf Course
Originally designed by Donald Ross and Perry Maxwell, Hillandale Golf Course is the Granddaddy of Durham's golf courses. An average of 45,000 rounds are played annually and nearly 1.7 million rounds have been played since 1960. This popularity can easily be attributed to its user-friendly design. The public golf course provides a challenge to golfers of all skill levels. As the oldest course in Durham, generations of families have grown up on the friendly fairways of Hillandale Golf Course.

Hillandale Golf Course was donated to the Durham, North Carolina, community in 1911 through the philanthropic interests of long-time Durham resident John Sprunt Hill. The original nine holes were designed by renowned golf course architect Donald Ross, with the remaining nine designed by Perry Maxwell. In 1960, the Hillandale Golf Course was moved to its current location and was redesigned by George Cobb, who designed the Surf Club in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
