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.

3rd West Malaysia - Best in Area 3rd Malaysia Ranking 68th Asia Ranking
There are some really dramatic fun holes at the Mines but not so many on the front nine. From the 3rd hole the course looks remarkably like it could be back in England, v...

Royal Selangor (New) 29/01/2010

20th West Malaysia - Best in Area 22nd Malaysia Ranking
The look and feel of both courses at the Royal are very similar and difficult to separate in terms of which is best so it is probably right that they will be around the s...

12th West Malaysia - Best in Area 13th Malaysia Ranking
The Old course is very green with plenty of trees but just a stones throw from the centre of the city. The Pretonas Towers and the KL Tower look down on the course and ar...

La Reserva 03/12/2009

6th Southern Spain - Best in Area 13th Spain Ranking 73rd Continental Europe Ranking
Very impressed with the course at La Reserva; neighbouring the hallowed turf of Valderrama and the Sotogrande Old course, this young course can hold its own. I played the...

Golf in Bulgaria is in the initial stages but what I have seen so far is impressive, the courses on the east coast have left a good feeling. At present there are two 18-h...

8th Kildare - Best in Area 95th Ireland Ranking
The course is only two years old but has already hosted the European Challenge Tour (June 2009) and I heard that the pros were very impressed, especially with greens. The...

I have been wanting to play at Rye for a while and got the chance recently. For note I have played most of the GB&I Top 100 and only have around six of the links courses...

3rd Dorset - Best in Area 47th England Ranking
Very enjoyable course and the recent move from GEM status to now being ranked within the Top 50 in England and Top 100 of GB&I is well deserved. It is never easy for new...

Just sometimes, you can play a brand new venue and know that the course is destined for warm praise from golfers who visit. I had this feeling in July 2009 after staying...

Druids Heath 31/07/2009

10th Wicklow - Best in Area 76th Ireland Ranking
The Heath course at Druids stands up on its own and exceeded my expectations. As early as the 2nd and 3rd holes you get a real treat; a downhill par-5 to a near island gr...

I have played at Hanbury annually since the course opened in the early 90’s and at present I would say the front nine is looking as good as ever. Not too easy to play the...
