Lay turf on top of gravel?

We're looking to replace all our stoney gravel with grass turf. The soil underneath the gravel is Clay. There is generally a problem with drainage in the area because of the clay. I'm worried that if I replace the stony gravel with grass turf I'll have drainage issues. One idea I had was to put a membrane over the stoney gravel (to keep the stones from surfacing) and then put topsoil on top of the membrane, then put compost on top of the topsoil and then turf on top of that. That way there will be a layer of stoney gravel underneath the top soil compost and turf to help with drainage. Is that a good or bad idea?
