The original 9-hole course was founded in 1909 with the current 18-hole layout opening in 1976. Since this time, the course has developed into one of the finest and challenging courses in the South Yorkshire region. The course has many 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."

A major feature is a tree-lined stream that runs through the centre of the course which opens out into a lake at holes one, two and ten. The course's superb condition and excellent design are Hickleton's major assets along with the fantastic panoramic views, which can be enjoyed from many areas of the course.
