Good take for the price

Played the course with the Safari Club and had an enjoyable round of golf. Course was in good shape from Tee to greens. Holes made more challenging with placement of bunkers throughout the course.

By Far, Best Course on Trip

The final leg of our NE golf trip, was at this course. Had an early tee time on the Sr. special and was paired up with a couple of local players and that in itself, really made the round fun and had local knowledge on top of that.
The course was in great shape and the pace of play was good …

One of the best things about this course is that when you hit it off the fairway, you have a good chance of finding the ball.
There were some interesting holes... 10 and 18 come to mind with the elevation rolls..
After the round, had lunch in the grill and the food was good and the waitress friendly.

Good value

I will preface this review with, I’m a below average golfer so I have very little basis for my opinion. I love golf and everything that goes with it. This course was fun and very reasonably priced. The cafe was good, nice bar selection, food was very good and again the prices weren’t bad. They were slightly under staffed. The course complaint would be the greens around the pin were very pitted, lots of bumps, which especially for this below average golfer, made it hard to putt. But otherwise, a lot of fun and I’ll be back!!

Ist time is a charm

I played Topstone for my first time last Wednesday. I am a new Member of a great groupI called the Safari Club. Over the past month many of the Members told me to be sure to sign up to play Topstone. I am glad I did as this course delivers. The greens were excellent and soft. They held your approach shots and rolled true. The fairways were great and the rough was just thick enough to provide some challenge without being overly unfair. The sand traps were like sand traps should be. We also had a great and very tasty buffet lunch making the day even more special. Go Play Topstone , you will enjoy it as much as I did

Best course in this area

Fairways and Greens were in excellent condition. Staff was attentive, courteous and extremely helpful. Played with the Safari Club which seems to always knock it out of the park with golf course selections. My compliments to Top Stone and staff and the Safari club for a wonderful experience. Both highly recommended to all golfers.

Topstone is "Top Notch"!

Played here on 9/27 with the Safari Club. This was our second Safari Club visit here, as everyone enjoyed it so much last year. In the interim, my group liked the course so much that we returned 3 more times. Every time -- including this one, the course was in excellent condition from tee to green! The staff was excellent and had everything very well organized from the time we arrived to and including the nice barbecue buffet that we enjoyed after golf. Looking forward to returning for some Fall golf.

Public course - private feel!

The Safari Club has developed a reputation of playing some fantastic venues over the last decade or so and Topstone rates right up there among the best. The golf course itself is outstanding. But no more outstanding then the folks that staff their facilities. Everyone from the pro shop to the kitchen and on outside to the guys preparing the carts work as a close team to make your day at Topstone a memorable one. With close proximity to the Bradley airport, Topstone will provide the business or pleasure traveler a real unique golfing experience without breaking the bank. If you like to travel and play different golf courses, Topstone is one you need to add to your list.

Great Track

Recently played the course with the Safari Club and was not disappointed. Great layout, challenging and yet fair holes for all levels of golfers. Exceptional condition from Tee to green and a great staff. Don't pass up the course if you are in the area
