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.

Murcar Links 07/07/2004

4th North East Scotland - Best in Area 34th Scotland Ranking
Do not be put off by your first impression, as from the car park what you see does not do Murcar justice. Nice gentle start on holes 1 and 2 but from then on, it's tough...

Woburn (Duchess) 29/06/2004

5th Buckinghamshire - Best in Area 96th England Ranking
In direct comparison to the Duke's (also Woburn), there is no way this should be nearly 100 places below it in the pecking order. Only around 100 yards shorter in length...
