Silkstone Golf Club, founded in 1893, lies just 1 mile from Junction 37 (M1) along the A628 (Manchester Road). A parkland/down land course of 18 holes, 6069 yards, with spectacular views over the villages of Silkstone, Cawthorne and foothills of the Pennines. The original course was founded in Barnsley and moved to its present location in 1905 where 9 holes were constructed at a cost of around £600.

Construction of the second 9 holes was delayed by the First World War and was not brought into use until 1917. The land was leased to the club until 1968 when the owners decided to terminate the lease sell the land and with great courage and foresight, it was agreed that the club would purchase the land.

In 1973 additional land was purchased to improve and lengthen the course. Further development of the course is being carried out on an additional 47 acres recently purchased. Silkstone Golf Club is very popular with golfing societies and corporate groups.

There are excellent clubhouse facilities and we offer attractive "all in" packages. There is a resident professional who has a well stocked shop offering a wide range of goods and services.
