Hubert Maclean Greenhill (19 September 1881 – 22 January 1926) was an English cricketer. Greenhill was a right-handed batsman who bowled slow left-arm orthodox spin.

In his early years Greenhill was educated at Wimborne Grammar School and at Sherborne School, who he played cricket for.

Greenhill represented Hampshire in two first-class matches in 1901, making his debut against the touring South Africans. In this match Greenhill claimed all of his three first-class wickets, taking 3/39 in the South Africans first innings. Greenhill's final first-class match came in his one and only County Championship match, which came against Derbyshire.

In 1903 Greenhill represented Dorset in friendly match against the Marylebone Cricket Club.

In 1906 Greenhill joined Dorset, making his Minor Counties debut in the 1906 Minor Counties Championship against Devon. Greenhill played for Dorset regularly until 1914, when the outbreak of the First World War led to County Cricket fixtures being cancelled.

Greenhill fought in the First World War, where he reached the rank of Major. Upon his return from the war, Greenhill did not immediately join Dorset, but in 1921 he returned for his second spell in Minor Counties cricket with the club. Greenhill's final Minor Counties match for Dorset came in the 1925 season against Monmouthshire. Greenhill played a total of forty Minor Counties Championship matches for Dorset.

Greenhill was found dead in woods near Bockhampton[disambiguation needed], Dorset on 22 January 1926.
