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 !
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.
