What the club says: Ryder Cup players, Peter Alliss and Clive Clark, have transformed this intriguing piece of land into one of the most beautiful golf courses in the country – a mixture of classic links and modern championship course.

The club is named after the Greenwich Meridian Line which runs through the course. Only eleven courses in the world span the Meridian Line - ten in England and one in France.

With water hazards on all but five of the holes and large, undulating greens built to USGA championship course standards, you need both a fearless approach and a steady head.

great course

This is a fantastic course. Every hole is a challenge, and there are only 2 r 3 soft holes on the course. The Par 5s are all fantastic, each of them a different challenge -- 3 are doglegs, and one is up hill and then down dale. Bunkers and creeks are strategically placed, and 10 or 11 of the holes have tricky water hazards. The greens are excellent too.

All in all a fantastic golf test, difficult for mid to high handicappers like me, but a really great day out. Great bar, too, and great driving range and putting green.

Will be coming regularly.

Always playable and in good condition

Great mix of short and long and doglegs left and right to be a challenge for the mid-handicappers amongst us. Good facilities, friendly and helpful staff and very decent food and beer.

Pick your way Round

Really enjoyed the course. Not really a place for the driver (I ran out of fairway a few times but that’s my fault) and the many dog-legs does mean that longer irons are needed to reach the green. Greens were true and very receptive. Not too fast.

The clubhouse was very friendly. Breakfast was uninspired. Just 1 sausage, egg, bacon and toast for £7.95. No mushrooms, tomatoes, beans or hash browns or tea.

Paid £23 for the round with county card. Scored 87 (15 handicap). Would definitely like to play again.

In the heart of the country side

Great course with good challenging holes. Has water hazards, dog legs and burns , water courses alongside and across fairways. The course is currently in good condition and the rough has been kept trimmed to make it challenging but playable., allowing play to continue at a reasonable pace. The club house is clean and tidy with views over the pond and a terrace for eating outside on a nice day, Staff are friendly and helpful.

course is looking good

From the well manicured tee's along the nicely cut fairways leading to the well kept greens the Meridian is looking in great condition and a pleasure to play.
Twilight rounds start at 13:00hrs and are a bargain at £18.

Played this course several times before. Always in decent condition, today was probably the best I have seen. Not that I did it justice.

Reviewed Apr 19 2019 by Kevin B. - rated 2 out of 5
Played here April 19.

I've always enjoyed playing Peter Alliss designed courses as they are good fun ,playable & well designed .However ,this was an exception & i didn't think it was that good.

Although it's not hilly it's a long walk round .The greens were the slowest i've see this winter & i play a different course each week .You had to push the ball at the hole .
Also ,the par 3s were uninspiring ,most of the par 5s you couldn't go for in two because the hole narrowed down and / or there was too much trouble near the green negating the effect of a good drive .Down 18 i hit a good drive but then just had to bunt an 8 iron down the fairway.On the sharp dogleg par 4 9th i hit a drive that carried the stream but then ran through the fairway into the rough & then couldn't go for the green .
Flagsticks didn't have the smaller distance flags on them & were not colour coded & some tee yardage posts were actually behind the tee instead of being alongside it & surprisingly i didn't notice anything on the course signifying the meridian line.
The pluses were that it is quite a peaceful place to play , there is a lot of gorse around the course which gives it visual appeal ,i liked holes 2, 8 ,11 & 14 & it 's quite nice sitting on the clubhouse terrace ( although the pub style picnic tables weren't very comfortable ) but overall there are too many shortcomings here .
Also ,although we played on the cheap day Monday it's overpriced for what it is & although we had a bit of a trek to get here i wouldn't return to play it again .

A nicely designed course with plenty of ditches to worry about. The bunkers need more sand and the greens needed cutting as they were very slow but overall worth a visit

Course in great condition in February

Really impressed with course condition for February, no temporary tees and greens all very good. We have played a few locally and beyond that have been nowhere near as good. It's a long course but rewarding for a mid-high handicapper with some challenging holes and some very gettable. Decent drive off tee is essential for pars and birdies.
