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.

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...

3rd Berkshire - Best in Area 36th England Ranking 83rd Britain & Ireland Ranking
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-...

Gem England - Best in Area
I like the club and course at Gorleston and enjoyed my first visit in May 2021. There is plenty of that seaside charm found at many coastal courses around the country and...

Moor Park (West) 20/11/2020

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...

Royal Wimbledon 19/11/2020

19th Surrey - Best in Area 82nd England Ranking
For a course that we can certainly call a Surrey great (#19) and also strong in country (#82), Royal Wimbledon does not get the attention of others either in the area or...

Chigwell 03/09/2020

6th Essex - Best in Area
My third visit to Chigwell; it is a decent parkland course (comfortably part of an Essex Top 10) with some very strong holes and the very first hole sets the scene early;...
