The station was built in 1912, six years after passenger services commenced on the Great Western/Great Central Joint line from Grendon Underwood junction to Marylebone via High Wycombe. Its original name was "Denham Golf Club Platform", and it was built to provide access to the adjacent Golf Club. It became a halt between the wars (and was still known by this title in the mid-sixties), at which time the platforms were lengthened. The original Up platform was on the London side of the road bridge, and made of wood, with an access path connecting to the track leading to the Golf Club. In the 1950s a new Up platform was built in concrete on the Wycombe side of the road bridge, opposite the Down. The Down platform was also rebuilt in concrete. The station's present name has no suffix.
The waiting rooms are still the original Great Western 'pagoda' structures. The ticket office, at road level on the down side, was also a pagoda building, but was damaged by fire in 2005 and demolished in early 2007. A near replica building was erected to replace the original ticket office in 2007; unlike the original it has no clerk's window. Both waiting rooms and the original ticket office were listed on 27 November 1992, to prevent their replacement by the bus shelter type structures appearing elsewhere along the line. The waiting rooms have recently been repainted to match the ticket office.
The original platform lighting standards were cast iron, and marked "G.W. & G.C. Jt" to reflect the builders' identities. These were removed as part of a modernisation of the station lighting—and indeed as part of the modernisation of the whole line—at around the same time as the new Class 165 diesel multiple unit stock was brought into service (1991).
Its hourly trains serve the adjacent community of Higher Denham almost exclusively (which is younger than the station), as nearly all golfers reach the Golf Club by car.
