    To get and use the GoldSrc engine, you must have Half-Life or any other GoldSrc game like Counter-Strike, Ricochet, Day of Defeat, etc.
    You can use the Half-Life SDK or Jackhammer to make maps for it, too.

    GoldSrc is the Half-Life 1 Engine, which is a heavily modded Quake 1 Engine (with some added Quake 2 elements.) It is basically the precursor to the Source engine.
    As far as i know, there is no stand-alone SDK for GoldSrc, you need to create a mod for a standalone GoldSrc game to do that (like Wkay said, CS 1.6, DoD or HL1)

    You can try using Sledge. It's a Hammer alternative that is designed for GoldSrc mapping afaik. I'd put a link here but I'm on mobile, so, uh, google it.
