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.

I first played at Adare Manor eleven years ago and the holes along the River Maigue (15th and 18th) were memorable but the course then was good but not great. My visit in...

Shannon 07/04/2019

4th Clare - Best in Area 78th Ireland Ranking
The course at Shannon did not impress me as much as I hoped; many similar up and down holes that did not inspire plus not in great condition this March. The course is a p...

Royal Ashdown Forest (West) 02/01/2019

10th Sussex - Best in Area
I am a fan of the West course and in some places and on some holes I have a preference over the Old course here. That may sound like sacrilege but there is a little half...

West Kent 01/08/2018

23rd Kent - Best in Area
A 100+ year old course that has passed me by and my first visit in the scorcher summer of 2018 was really enjoyable – I’ll not go mad and say this is a ‘must-play’ but I...

In terms of rankings, English parkland courses will always be behind links and heathland categories, unfortunate but that is the way it is and most would agree with this....
