Founded in 1926, Hope Valley is a classic Tudor design, embracing 52,000 square feet of recreational facilities, including dining, swimming and tennis, and featuring a classic Donald Ross championship golf course, considered one of Donald Ross’ “hidden gems”. Over the years, Hope Valley has been host to a number of important golf events, including the 1945 Durham Open, which Byron Nelson won on his way to eleven straight victories.

historical and today

When first entering the historic core of the Hope Valley community, what is most striking is the unchanged nature of its landscape, roadways and golf course from its early days. The carefully drawn streets and buffers still grace this old neighborhood, and the views and vistas appear almost exactly as they did in 1926. Only the size of the oaks, hickories and pines belie the fact that time has gone by. Recently, the Donald Ross course was carefully restored to its former glory by the nation’s foremost specialists in vintage courses.
