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

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.

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.

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.

Played with the Safari Club. Course was in excellent condition and staff couldn't have been more accommodating (someone even came by to offer us water and soda while playing!!) Food after was great. All and all a perfect day with exception of heat!! Definitely hoping to get back there before end of season. It is a GEM for the price!!!

I find Topstone to be slog that produces no memorable holes that really stand out. The conditions are always good and the greens fair, if fairly flat. It just that besides #9 none of the holes capture my imagination or respect. I'm talking about a lot of down and back holes that are all fairly straight with uninteresting bunkers. It's not horrible, it's just not memorable. The price is also out of whack for what you are getting. It's really no better than any other muni in the area.

Maybe the most beautiful course I have played all year with the Safari Golf Club. Immaculate conditions, the best cart path anywhere, fast true rolling greens, a good challenge without being overwhelmingly difficult.

After a very enjoyable round of golf we had a great cookout buffet.

We've already made plans to return in a foursome or two early this fall.
