Course OK apart from M4 noise which was constant. Overseeing of tee times and bookings appalling, gaps of 4 minutes between tee times, 2 balls, 4 balls, 4 ball buggies, all sent out in no order no check on hackers or handicaps, We were a 4 ball without buggies used to playing on courses of this standard, it took us...

My friend and went last minute to play here and decided we would walk the course. Bad idea... well unless you have a trolley or pretty fit lol. Course is fantastic ... opening hole is probably the only let down. The rest are brilliant. Fully recommend a visit here and Roman Road... need to play 2010 again before I comment... More

We waited at the tee for the starter for 30 minutes and were very disappointed by this but that was the only negative of this course. Lots of different and challenging holes, if it wasn't as wet as it was it would of been a lot harder. A free course map could be a good idea for visitors as there... More

My wife and I played here after my children bought me a 1 night 2 rounds of golf package for my 60th birthday. The staff were terrific and I'd give them 5 stars for being so helpful and friendly, but that was the best part. The main issue I have with CM is that if you are a 2 ball... More

We enjoyed playing the course but felt let down by the buggy policy where you have to stick to paths and then walk at right angles to the ball. The ball was often on the opposite side of the fairway from the path and I think this also contributed to slow play.

We were playing as a group of 12 over 2 days. Day 1 we played the Roman Road and we ate at the Rafters. Mostly very good. Drink/beer prices are very expensive and they have the cheek to add an 'optional' 10% service charge to an order for a sausage sandwich. Food in Rafters was very good quality if a... More
