Dornick Hills

Dornick Hills Golf and Country Club is a private club with a challenging 18-hole course that embodies a proud history.

Built in 1913 by Perry Maxwell on what was previously Maxwell's dairy farm, Dornick Hills marked the first golf course the legendary golf architect designed and built. Maxwell would go on the design and build over 70 courses across America including Tulsa's Southern Hills and Prairie Dunes in Hutchinson, Kansas.

Maxwell also remodeled 50 other courses including Pine Valley and Augusta National, both top 10 courses in the world.

The course is known for hole No. 16, aptly named the "cliff hole," a 532-yard, par-5 which calls for an approach shot over a 40-foot cliff in order to hit the green. There are two lakes that come into play on four holes.

Maxwell, the "Father of Dornick Hills," died in 1952 at the age of 73, and is buried in the family cemetery on a ridge north of the seventh fairway.

Dornick Hills, one of the oldest and most prestigious golf clubs in Oklahoma, boasts the distinction of being the first Oklahoma golf
club affiliated with the United States Golf Association. The course has been the site of numerous tournaments including the Ardmore Open, a PGA Tour event, from 1952 to 1954. It is also home to the club's signature event "The Oilmen's" since 1963 and one of the premier college events of the region "The Maxwell" for the past 16 years.

The club also enjoys the distinction of being ranked in the top-five golf courses in Oklahoma by Golf Digest on several occasions.
