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.

Mill Ride 09/07/2006

9th Berkshire - Best in Area
This is worth playing and when you have I think you’ll probably want to go back again (I will). Really nice course that exceeded expectations – when you think of golf in...

The Island 07/07/2006

2nd Dublin - Best in Area 8th Ireland Ranking 51st Britain & Ireland Ranking
One of the best links courses around. It’s a bit tough finding the place as there are no signposts and the road you need to take is one of the Beatles kind, i.e. long and...

7th Sussex - Best in Area
Have played here twice; once in the winter and once in the summer. Like most courses, Mannings Heath looks a picture in the summer by comparison. Right now the fairways a...

6th North Scotland - Best in Area 29th Scotland Ranking 89th Britain & Ireland Ranking
Great out and in links. Rather charming with the sheep and cattle wandering around with no interest in your birdie at the 2nd or your eight at the 7th - I do think I saw...

10th Hertfordshire - Best in Area
Managed to play in a corporate in May 2006 and it has been about five years since I last played here. I can safely say that the course has improved and matured enormously...

Western Gailes 27/04/2006

3rd Ayrshire & Arran - Best in Area 15th Scotland Ranking 37th Britain & Ireland Ranking
Great links course squashed between the railway and the sea. Holes 1-4 go north, 5-13 south and 14-18 back to north, therefore the wind is a big factor. Pretty as a pictu...

5th Ayrshire & Arran - Best in Area 30th Scotland Ranking 90th Britain & Ireland Ranking
I agree with a lot of what Jim has written on his GEM recommendation - on maturity all links lovers will love this course. When you play here, there is no mistaking the d...

Prestwick 10/04/2006

4th Ayrshire & Arran - Best in Area 16th Scotland Ranking 38th Britain & Ireland Ranking
Stayed in a lovely b&b near to the course which was handy. Got a round here on a fairly quiet Sunday and had been agonising over the tee shot at the first for a few weeks...

Chart Hills 27/03/2006

10th Kent - Best in Area
Very impressed with Chart Hills. The vast amount of bunkers (138 of them) are a key factor but the variety of holes for me is the biggest plus point. No one hole is anyth...

3rd Oxfordshire - Best in Area
Ultra modern layout but with a really nice quality feel about the place. The clubhouse is a beautiful building and a wander around inside is a great way to start the day....

20th Surrey - Best in Area 92nd England Ranking
Played in December and the course was in fine condition with high class greens. Two sets of nine holes that really compliment each other nicely – front nine fairly flat b...

Addington Palace 01/12/2005

36th Surrey - Best in Area
Played the front 9 only but liked what I saw. Pretty non-descript 1st hole (180 yard par 3) (managed a tee shot shot to 7 inches though) but the next 8 holes are varied,...

Nairn Dunbar 27/11/2005

9th North Scotland - Best in Area 56th Scotland Ranking
An awesome golf course. Anywhere near handicap on this course is a good score but it is fair and rewards good shots. You need to be long and straight off the tee or you w...
