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.

2nd Berkshire - Best in Area 22nd England Ranking 49th Britain & Ireland Ranking

Copt Heath 08/10/2007

5th Warwickshire - Best in Area
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....

4th Algarve - Best in Area 7th Portugal Ranking 45th Continental Europe Ranking
The Old course has a brilliant start with a downhill par-4, an uphill par-5 and a picturesque par-3 at the 4th hole. The setting is through the trees that are so familiar...

3rd Southern Spain - Best in Area 5th Spain Ranking 18th Continental Europe Ranking

Good honest parkland course with a fair hint of quality. It is predominantly at its best in the summer but that must be true about many inland park courses. Fantastic gre...

11th Turkey Ranking
In comparison to the Old course at same resort, the New is easier and that is probably because there is more room off of the tee. Around five years newer also but is stil...
