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.

7th North Wales - Best in Area 20th Wales Ranking
There are many references that this course has two distinct halves, with most saying parkland for the front 9 and a links back 9. This is partially true but my feeling is...

Conwy 23/08/2010

3rd North Wales - Best in Area 5th Wales Ranking
Conwy is a great golf course, in fact this is very close to a 6-ball rating in my opinion. The opening hole is what you may call a straight-away hole that gets your round...

North Wales 21/08/2010

5th North Wales - Best in Area 13th Wales Ranking
The course at North Wales is a strong 4-ball rating for me and close to being a 5-ball really, there are a couple of things that just tipped the balance into the lower ra...

10th North Scotland - Best in Area 63rd Scotland Ranking
In direct comparison to other Scottish Highland courses, Golspie would not be included in the top 7 of the region, this is no fault of Golspie but just that there are som...

Santana 12/08/2010

16th Southern Spain - Best in Area 58th Spain Ranking
There have been some mixed reviews so far for Santana; some say the best course down on the Costa del Golf and other reviewers a little less gushing. I think it would qui...

Donegal 11/08/2010

4th Donegal - Best in Area 18th Ireland Ranking
As others have stated, Donegal does not have the visual drama as others along the west coast; Carne, Enniscrone, Sandy Hills and Ballyliffin but this is still a fine link...

The condition of Royal Belfast is obvious from the moment you arrive. Manicured and attention to detail is very high. The start is one of the hardest I’ve played. The slo...
