About Sickleholme

Welcome to Sickleholme Golf Club. Founded in 1898 Sickleholme is a friendly club nestling in the heart of the beautiful Peak District in Derbyshire some 13 miles from Sheffield, 16 miles from Chesterfield and 15 miles from Glossop. With an undulating parkland course of 6,064 yards, (ladies 5,399 yards) and stunning views, it is hard to find a more spectacular or picturesque venue.

After playing the great course Bobby Locke was so impressed that a painting of the 13th hole graced his home mantelpiece in South Africa for many years.

Some testing holes await you on the impeccably manicured course with enviable greens, which have all seen extensive improvements over recent years. The nature of the course and the care which is lavished on it, results in it rarely being closed during the winter months.

You will find Sickleholme to be a friendly and welcoming club and we request that visitors take a moment to familiarise themselves with the information below.

We ask that all visitors respect the basic dress code and take note of the following:

A warm welcome is extended to all visitors in our comfortable sun lounge and dining room overlooking the 18th hole and there is SkyTV and a snooker table in the bar.

Groups and societies are encouraged to discuss their requirements in advance with our Golf professional who can help with the organisation and smooth running of your event. We have an electronic leader-board in the bar area where scores can be displayed.

I would like to thank the golf club, green keeping staff, members & catering staff for a perfect day. The course was in magnificent condition, the bar staff were friendly & welcoming, the evening meal was magnificent (even providing a late request for treacle sponge & custard) & you even managed to stop the rain in time for our Captain to 'Drive Off'. Put all this together & add the stunning scenery - a perfect day. Once again, thank you Sickleholme GC, I hope it won't be to long before we visit you again.
