High Post Golf Club


4-star: generally an excellent standard golf course, well worth visiting.
   High Post Golf Club Est. 1922

Where2Golf says: 

High Post Golf Club: From first to last, you'll be provided with excellent views over Salisbury Plain, on a very enjoyable downland course. The chalk soil ensures excellent drainage and lovely springy turf on the fairways. Small trees and bushes line many of the fairways, but never too tightly. On most of the holes, especially around the greens, are nicely sculpted small mounds, sand bunkers and superb grass hollows, giving great definition to the course - some modern course designers could learn a lot from a good look at the High Post course. The only "downside" to a course on such an exposed site - you guessed it, the wind !

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game. It is arguably the best of the country's more northerly layouts, together with Lauswolt (50 km away to the north-west).

Golfbaan Stippelberg: located 25 kilometres north-east of Eindhoven, this relatively new addition to championship golf in the Netherlands has fast become one of the country's "must play" courses.
