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.

Ring of Kerry 21/09/2005

Gem Ireland - Best in Area
Stunning scenery everywhere on the route to the course at the Ring and these views are on offer all around the golf course. It would be unfair to make a direct comparison...

Ipswich (Purdis Heath) 06/09/2005

1st Suffolk - Best in Area 48th England Ranking
High quality golf at Ipswich, a Braid classic indeed. The heathland course has got it all with a great selection of all types of hole and a tough test. All the usual heat...

Wentworth (Edinburgh) 29/08/2005

21st Surrey - Best in Area
Challengers to the claim that Wentworth has the best set of 54 holes in Britain, would be Gleneagles, Woburn and The Belfry. It has to be Wentworth for me and the Edinbur...

Royal Cromer 23/08/2005

5th Norfolk - Best in Area
Cliff top course with some cracking holes – most of these come towards the end of the round though. This makes some of the early holes a little un-interesting to be hones...

Sheringham 23/08/2005

3rd Norfolk - Best in Area 79th England Ranking
Playing here is really enjoyable … with the exception of the 2nd, a real set of decent holes – some with beautiful views along the cliffs. The par of 70 safely puts the c...

Manor House 15/08/2005

2nd Wiltshire - Best in Area
The course at the Manor House is well worth the visit. After a gentle 1st hole, the 2nd (par 3) and 3rd (par 5 into and over the valley) are real quality golf holes and a...

Similar to the words above – this is a great course that many could miss. Well don’t miss it !!! Really good course at the top end of the tree lined, parkland bunch and i...

Fair links/seaside course and a nice place to visit. I played here a few times in the early 90's and returned last week - I think the up keep of the course has deteriorat...

6th South Wales - Best in Area 16th Wales Ranking
Played here in fairly decent weather and scored just one off of handicap but playing here was a disappointment. At best I found this an OK parkland course but a Top 100 r...

North Hants 22/05/2005

5th Hampshire - Best in Area 81st England Ranking
What a great golfing experience. North Hants is very similar to some of it’s nearby Surrey heathland neighbours – but in my mind is better than most of them. A course of...

Slaley Hall (Hunting) 25/04/2005

4th Northumberland - Best in Area
Modern course built on a great piece of land – plenty of variety here although there is something lacking. The course suffers out of season and does look a little weather...

Brocket Hall (Melbourne) 19/04/2005

12th Hertfordshire - Best in Area
What I like most about the Melbourne course is the variety and quality. When you get these two traits, then you are on to a winner. A very tough opening drive with the Ri...

Brocket Hall (Palmerston) 19/04/2005

13th Hertfordshire - Best in Area
Billed as the second and newer course at Brocket but this could easily be the pick of the two for some. Very Woburnesque in places (which is always a plus point) and also...

Belfry (PGA National) 15/04/2005

13th Warwickshire - Best in Area
Not a lot to say about the PGA at the Belfry. All pretty samey and rather predictable. The quality is not too bad but nothing more than an average rating from me - have p...

Belfry (Brabazon) 14/04/2005

After reading comments from other golfers about the Brabazon, I was nervous that my wander around the famous 18 would be disappointing – Nothing of the sort, the Brabazon...
