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.

A wonderful experience even in the torrential Yorkshire rain of January 2008. The heathland turf is a joy to hit from and this encourages crisp approach shots to the gree...

14th Dominican Republic Ranking
Most people who play here are likely to be on holiday, so it is an easy course to like because of the atmosphere. The course is relatively flat and not that tough to play...

Berkshire (Blue) 01/11/2007

3rd Berkshire - Best in Area 36th England Ranking 83rd Britain & Ireland Ranking
Straight from the first hole on the Blue (long par-3 in-front of the clubhouse), the course sets a fine standard. A little more open from the tee than the Red course that...

Copt Heath 09/10/2007

Copt Heath is well worth a visit; it is a very green and lush surrounding and is a joyful setting. The course is flat but do not be fooled as there are many tough holes....
