The Stonehenge Golf Tour
Unique downland golf on the edge of the Salisbury Plain.
The Stonehenge Golf Tour
There is so much English Heritage in this region that you will no doubt be distracted from the very special downland golf available on the edge of the Salisbury Plain. The Stonehenge comprises three very fine examples of Downland Golf, which is unique to England.
Peter Allis rates High Post so highly he once said he would include the par 4 ninth hole on his 'Dream 18'. In 1997 Golf Monthly described the course as a 'hidden gem'. High Post has hosted the South West Amateur Championship in 1998, the prestigious Carris Trophy in 1999, the Wiltshire County Championship on countless occasions and more recently, the Girl's British Open Amateur Championship. If further proof were needed of High Post's pedigree, how about some of the past winners/participants of the High Post Open, including Andrew Sherbourne, David Howell, Zane Scotland and Justin Rose, all of whom are now established stars in the world of professional golf.
Whilst the course owes its existence to the military; Tidworth Garrison Golf Club owes an even greater debt to legendary golf course architect Harry Shapland Colt. H.S. Colt is world-renown for such golfing jewels as Muirfield, Sunningdale and Wentworth. When designing a course, Mr. Colt's vision began with a survey of the land, deciding where best to site his greens. First to be chosen were normally the short holes and this is perfectly displayed at our 5th & 13th holes, both of which are superb, one-shot holes. The 12th & 16th are both wonderful golf holes, with the 17th almost as testing and arguably the prettiest.
There are 27 holes available at Salisbury & South Wilts Golf Club and every single one of them is a cracker. Made up of a main 18-hole course, which is recognised as a good golfing challenge to all types of golfer, and a nine-hole course that weaves tantalisingly in and out of Salisbury Racecourse, this is a golfing hotspot of the very highest order.
All 27 holes are maintained to a very high standard by a dedicated team of professionals and the greens, especially, are praised regularly by many visitors. Interestingly, the club hosts an annual Pro-Am Tournament which attracts many of the region's top professional golfers, including European Tour players.
