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.

Thorpeness 02/05/2009

5th Suffolk - Best in Area
This course thoroughly deserves it's GEM status, in fact it must be close to having a ranking. I played on a bright April morning and enjoyed the course and my round tota...

Lindrick 16/03/2009

4th Yorkshire - Best in Area 59th England Ranking
I like Lindrick and had a lovely spring day’s golf there. The course is coming to life and the harsh UK winter is waving goodbye. The gorse is starting to bloom and I rea...

Foxhills (Bernard Hunt) 14/03/2009

33rd Surrey - Best in Area
A decent course rather a really great one. The mention of Surrey and golf gets most people weak at the knees as the quality is high and the list on this site has sixteen...

The Addington 03/12/2008

16th Surrey - Best in Area 58th England Ranking
The only negative is that there are two par-3’s in the first three holes – more unusual than negative maybe. Golf at the Addington is everything that is great about the g...

La Cala (Asia) 24/11/2008

29th Southern Spain - Best in Area 98th Spain Ranking
Playing the Asia course is an enjoyable experience. Bit of a strange start though with an uphill par-5 that is SI-1 (and a pretty comfortable par 5 to be honest). The hol...

Hanbury Manor 05/10/2008

10th Hertfordshire - Best in Area
Great thing about the course here is that it is a great test and not too busy. Course condition in 2008 has been better than my last visit (2005) and although there are b...

Belfry (PGA National) 29/09/2008

13th Warwickshire - Best in Area
It is difficult to call this a bad course but it is not really a very good course either. The fairways are big and wide, the bunkering is big and the greens are big too....

Abridge 21/09/2008

11th Essex - Best in Area
Abridge is a good course but not quite in the very good category. There is a great clubhouse atmosphere and a healthy membership but the course sort of echoes Essex golf...

8th North Scotland - Best in Area 44th Scotland Ranking
Expectations for me were high prior to the visit and I was not disappointed - I like this course a lot. The Spey Valley area with the abundance of heather and being withi...

El Saler 15/09/2008

1st South East Spain - Best in Area 2nd Spain Ranking 5th Continental Europe Ranking
Well worth playing – the course starts with some familiar looking Spanish holes with umbrella pines all around. After playing the par-3 4th it is all change and off to a...

El Bosque 11/09/2008

7th South East Spain - Best in Area 47th Spain Ranking
A good inland course that is well off the main tourist run. Around two hours north from Alicante, Valencia is not home to the usual holidaying golfers seen further south....

Woburn (Duchess) 11/09/2008

5th Buckinghamshire - Best in Area 96th England Ranking
As an example of a tree lined tight driving course that is as pretty as a picture, look no further than the Duchess course. I played in August 2008 (have now played about...

Bearwood Lakes 24/07/2008

4th Berkshire - Best in Area 52nd England Ranking
This is the fourth time I have played the course and not many courses improve on each visit but Bearwood Lakes certainly does. A few years ago the rough was too rough – t...
