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.

1st Cyprus Ranking
Another new European course that I have a gut feeling will get many positive reviews (including mine). The surrounding area of the course is by no means complete but don’...

Rotherham 09/05/2011

18th Yorkshire - Best in Area
Have to say, slightly disappointed with Rotherham. Yes it is a fairly nice looking park-land course but not many holes inspired me to be honest. The front nine is a littl...

Hallamshire 06/05/2011

8th Yorkshire - Best in Area
At one of the highest points in Yorkshire, Sheffield's Hallamshire Golf Club can be found and this is well worth a visit. There is no friendly start though, straight into...

Reigate Heath 28/04/2011

27th Surrey - Best in Area
I am not too sure how many 9-hole courses are on the Top 100 website but I would imagine not that many. I was slightly reluctant to accept a recent invitation to play at...

3rd Suffolk - Best in Area 90th England Ranking
On the whole, I enjoyed my recent visit to Woodbridge – Having played locally at Aldeburgh, Thorpeness and Ipswich in the past, I expected a similar style of course and t...

Aphrodite Hills 01/04/2011

2nd Cyprus Ranking
This is a tough review to write; as I refer to my notes from during the round it is difficult to fault the experience but in all honesty it can only be a 4-ball rating fr...

1st Buckinghamshire - Best in Area 43rd England Ranking 96th Britain & Ireland Ranking
Where has the time gone? The ‘new’ course at Woburn is now over ten years old (2000) – a true reminder that the older we all get, the quicker time flies! I have been luck...

Knole Park 20/10/2010

5th Kent - Best in Area 89th England Ranking
The course at Knole Park is on land that is spectacular and undulating and to be honest unlike what I have come to understand what a golf course layout looks like (in pla...
