Golf began at Beauchief in 1897 when Abbeydale Golf Club constructed a nine hole course. A full 18 hole course was opened in October 1912. The course became the property of Sheffield City Council in 1925 when Abbeydale Golf Club moved to its present location.

A founder group of twenty golfers met on 14th March 1925 to consider the question of forming a club. As a result, the Club was established with the first subscriptions being due on 1st April 1925. The first Annual General Meeting was held on 26th February 1926.
Beauchief became a member of the Sheffield Union of Golf Clubs (SUGC) in June 1925. A separate Beauchief Thursday Golf Club was merged with the main club at an EGM on 19th September 1925.
