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.

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...

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...

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) 15/04/2005

1st Warwickshire - Best in Area 76th England Ranking
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...

West Hill is a tough test with a par of 69, which includes 5 par 4’s over 400 yards. Straight driving is needed to enable a chance of getting to the green on these holes...
