Andy Newmarch

I've played golf for around 40 years now, mainly around GB&I but have travelled extensively in the last 15 years to play and have had a great time. Coastal golf remains my favourite style of course and would always be my first choice, in saying that a recent visit to The Links at Fancourt, South Africa gave an instant entry to my personal top 5. Must have played close to 1,000 courses now and love sharing my thoughts on the Top 100 website, which is the best source around to research courses and opinions.

10th Suffolk - Best in Area
There is so much to enjoy at Flempton and really difficult to think on how to improve the experience from start to finish. This is a 9-hole course that dates back to 1895...

4th Essex - Best in Area
The course at Romford is decent and well worthy of county Top 10 position. The club like many is predominantly for the members but visitors are normally pretty happy with...

Letchworth 01/09/2021

30th Hertfordshire - Best in Area
Another one of the many parkland courses of Hertfordshire. Letchworth for me gets off to a slow start with a 287 yard par-4 and a 193 yard par-3 with not too much about i...

Pinner Hill 06/08/2021

10th Middlesex - Best in Area
First thing to mention is that the course at Pinner Hill is about 35 miles from my home and my first game here was in August of this year – what a mistake to have left it...

Braintree 06/07/2021

15th Essex - Best in Area
The course at Braintree is a tale of two nines; a par-34 front with no par-5’s and no par-4’s over 400 yards and the back nine being a much tougher test, around 250 yards...

The courses at The Berkshire can certainly be placed in the ‘classy’ envelope and time spent at the club, whether a member or as a guest is always a joy. The Blue in mid-...

I am fan of everything at Moor Park; the courses, the mansion, the tournament history and the obvious air of quality. The West course in places is as good as the High cou...
