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.

The Grove 06/03/2007

1st Hertfordshire - Best in Area 78th England Ranking
My third playing visit to the Grove left me feeling suitably impressed that the course continues to improve as it matures. The 2006 AmEx event was a brilliant success and...

The message from golfers who recommended this place to me said, this is the best course in Scotland – wow. After my recent visit, I can’t go as far as saying the best but...

The resort at the Vale is a welcome addition to the M4 golfing corridor that includes St Pierre, Celtic Manor, Porthcawl, and Pennard to name a few. The Vale will be hopi...

Bowood 12/10/2006

1st Wiltshire - Best in Area
After a slow start with up and down holes and the 1st and 2nd, the par 5 3rd is in my mind the start of a great course. The 8th has got to go down as one of the fun holes...

London Club (International) 11/09/2006

9th Kent - Best in Area
It is a very decent second course at a location where you are looked after so well. My preference would be the Heritage course as a collection of 18 holes but there are p...

Sandiway 07/09/2006

4th Cheshire - Best in Area 98th England Ranking
Certainly cant argue that this is a decent course; but there are far too many blind shots for this to be up there with the great courses. Enjoyable and will play it again...

Cork 03/08/2006

2nd Cork - Best in Area 30th Ireland Ranking
Decent parkland course with plenty of history – certainly one of Ireland’s oldest courses. Brilliant holes along the shoreline (4th and 5th) and watch out for the 17th, i...

Fota Island (Deerpark) 03/08/2006

3rd Cork - Best in Area 37th Ireland Ranking

Oh my god! I have never been so scared over so many shots as here. This is so spectacular and so good. Old Head is fun, scary, exciting and a place that is totally un-for...

Difficult to dislike Batchworth Park as there is plenty of variation and a pleasant enough place to play golf (if you can get on, members and guests only). First couple o...
