Interesting green complexes. Good shape. A fun design. The tacos from the grill are very good.

Decent course for the money. A bunch of reviews out there complaining about the condition of the course, we thought it was in pretty good shape. Some challenging holes without destroying you

This is the course I played when learning the game and highly recommend it. I've read a number of reviews where people were disappointed by course conditions at Hillandale and it always irks me. If you're paying between $20-35 in greens fees, you shouldn't expect country club conditions. In my opinion, Hillandale is one of a coupe courses in the entire area competing for the best value.
In the past few years the management has done an excellent job caring for and improving the facilities. A number of the cart paths are currently being replaced/repaved. Bermuda greens were installed a few years back, and if you catch them at the right time of year (late spring or early summer) or after freshly mowed, they are slippery and roll true. Also, though there are sporadic spots where the grass struggles, the tee boxes and fairways are consistent and well maintained. The practice facilities and bigger than other comparable courses, with a generously sized driving range, large practice green next to the first tee box, and a separate chipping/pitching pirating space.
In addition, one of the best parts of plating at Hillandale is their staff. I have always found them to be amazingly welcoming and very helpful.
If you haven't played here, especially if you live in Durham, you should.

I just played this course on 9/20 and 9/21 2019. The course is in great shape. The greens are tough to read and they are fast. The course is very challenging, I think I used almost every club in my bag. I shot 79 and 83. I really enjoyed the course and the staff in the clubhouse are awesome. I have nothing but good things to say about playing there and I would play it again when I'm in the area.

A great course in Durham. The roughs can be a little tall/unmanaged but overall the course is great for
All player levels.

Let me start by saying great choice in course to play. Presents unique challenges from every tee box. Fairways vary from wife to tight and the creek comes into play on majority of the holes. Pro shop staff is awesome and equipment selection is plentiful. You will have a great time here expect the course to defend our and not give up to many birdies but they are out there for the shotmakers and true putters. Great course

I play this course more than any other in the triangle. It's convenient, very affordable, and has some good variety. Some of the greens and tee boxes could use some work, but overall worth the value.

Course is Good. It has a few challenging par 3’s. Cart paths need some work.
