Hickleton Golf Club is located in open countryside in the heart of South Yorkshire between the towns of Doncaster, Rotherham and Barnsley, yet only three miles from junction 37 of the A1(M).
The original 9-hole course was founded in 1909 with the current 18-hole layout opening in 1976, which was designed by the Ryder Cup players Neil Coles and Brian Huggett. Since 1976 the course has been developed into one of the finest and challenging courses in the South Yorkshire region. The course is an undulating parkland course with tree-lined fairways and fantastic panoramic views over South Yorkshire and the eastern Pennines. In the words of many visitors to Hickleton: "a superb course with magnificent scenery."
Societies, groups and casual visitors are always given a warm welcome at Hickleton Golf Club. Our staff will see that you are looked after throughout your time with us.
Packages are available to suit all needs, from a simple 18 holes only package, to packages of 36 holes including food and drink before, during and after your round. Special winter packages are available from November through to March.
The Latest News......
The relatively wet Autumn and cold conditions of recent weeks have proved challenging for all golf courses across the Yorkshire region and Hickleton is no exception. We invested in a substantial programme of drainage works in 2013 and supplemented this by major improvements to our paths in 2014 to ensure that when such conditions do occur, the course can remain playable as long as possible for the benefit of members and visitors. Players accessing the course in these circumstances are asked to ensure that their trolley is fitted with a form of winter wheel, to minimise damage to the ground in areas of high footfall. Our winter golf fees and package options are attractively priced to take account of the conditions, see the Visitor and Societies pages for more details.
Our team of green keepers are busy on the course over the winter period and have a comprehensive programme of improvement works to complete - up to date details of the status of the work in progress can be obtained via Twitter .....@garymarsh49
Nonetheless we all look forward to another warm and dry summer, when players of the course can fully appreciate its beauty and unique position, as was the case in 2014, when our course was openly admired by all our visitors.
