Not at the moment

Local course for me and I would normally rate it highly but not in its current state big dry cracks in most of the fairways greens only average and tee areas poor I'm sure with a bit of rain and a couple of months down the line it will get back to its best but until then I will give it a swerve .

Average but good value

Not the most interesting course, very open and lots of cries of 'fore'.
Course condition could only be described as 'fair'. Greens were variable and a bit fluffy.
Fairways were dry and cracked as they dont appear to water them
BUT - Great value and good food

Mid week TMC round at Top Meadow

Had not played this course in about a decade and it was a pleasure going back on what was a cloudy, hot humid day.
I'd forgotten the holes so it was a nice challenge to re-review the course. I have to say it was also great value at £16 which included a breakfast...brilliant.

Don’t play here

I played here Wednesday 18th July. Very disappointed in my visit. I had heard very good things about this golf course and was very excited to play here, but that soon changed after reaching the 1st green. The greens here are awful, they were long, patchy and very heavy. While the course layout is good and the course itself is enjoyable, the greens hugely spoil the experience. I regularly play at Cranham Golf Course, which as a lot of golfers will know is a short well maintained course and th greens are superb. While Cranham isn’t as challenging as Top Meadow, and the course layout isn’t as good, I would happily pay to play at Cranham rather than putt on top meadows shambles of greens.

Because of the hot weather the fairways were a bit parched and green a bit bumpy.

Bit gutted

Played here on Sunday 22nd April and was really disappointed how bad the greens was.Considering the amount of rain we have had they was really dry and bobbly and really really slow.Also they all had been hollow lined so putting was a defo no-no.Will defo go back because I have played here before but I think I will leave it for a while until the greens are back to there original self,fast and true

Hidden gem

Discovered this course in 2016, prior to this even though I only live 20 mins away I didn’t know it was there. Just played again today after heavy winter rain last night and couldn’t believe how well the course, and especially the greens, had drained. Played Hainault 5 days ago and the water retention was awful.\Although the course looks easy, if you don’t hit fairways then the trees and out of bounds, plus numerous ditches will test you. The course is well established and quite picturesque.\I really don’t think that there is any golf course in this area that offers such good value for money on their Golf deal. Where else would you get 18 holes on a nice course, plus a cooked English breakfast for only £16? Nowhere is the answer.\Even though we live fairly local 8 of us stayed and played last summer. Beautiful weather, round of golf on 1st day, evening meal (very nice food), twin room, breakfast and another round of golf all for £70pp. Come on, it would be rude not to.\Oh, the staff in the bar and restaurant were really friendly as well. Highly recommended.
