Architect

Robert Trent Jones Sr., Gil Hanse

The South Course Robert Trent Jones created the 6700-meter, par 71 South Course at the members-only Wilmington Country Club in Delaware's capital city more than half a century ago. Over the years such events as the US Amateur and Mid-Am Championships have been played here, as is the LPGA Championship on a regular basis. In 2008, Gil Hanse was brought in to do some updating, and the result is a lovely and quite challenging layout. Teeing options, however, open things up for less accomplished golfers. The par 5 3rd is the signature hole, 585 yards of lovely scenery that plays down to a green defended by a big water hazard and bunkering on three sides. Nicely proportioned, the course is eminently walkable and meticulously groomed. The staff is professional and takes very good care of members and their guests, who will want to try the club's North Course too if the opportunity arises. The North Course The Dick Wilson-designed North Course at Wilmington Country Club was build nearly at the same time as Trent Jones finished the South Course. The length is 600 yards shorter than the South with 8 of the par fours measuring less than 400 yards. The North Course has always been overshadowed by its brother down the years but it is a real challenge and the finishing hole is one of Dick Wilson's best designs.
