On the 15/12/2008, Top Golf Limited submitted a planning application to Hillingdon council. Details can be found at; http://www.hillingdon.gov.uk/index.jsparticleid10058 The details of this application centre around the replacement of part of the existing Golf Course at Ruislip, notably the existing 16th and 17th holes and significant parts of the existing 10th and 15th holes, with a vast two storey building and range housing a Top Golf gaming facility. Ruislip Golf Club has been on this site since 1936, and is home to a number of local golfers including a thriving Junior section, a Ladies section, Seniors and Adult membership. The current Golf course is identified as part of the areas heritage and offers an area of natural beauty where in addition to playing golf, local residents often enjoy walks in the open spaces. Top Golfs plans will impact on the area by introducing an unsightly mass of construction, high powered lighting, and increased traffic flow. This application threatens the security of our Homes and Families as well as almost certainly further damaging our property values in the surrounding area. This proposal also threatens the survival of Ruislip Golf Club itself. With no assurances from the local authority about replacing the land taken by this monstrosity, we are threatened with major changes to Ruislip Golf course and the potential implications of this. In Conclusion the proposals submitted by Top Golf Limited offer no advantage over the existing facilities and can only be viewed as detrimental to both the surrounding area and the Golf Club itself. Please help us protect our Golf course by joining our petition.
