Golf Course Update
This year so far has given us the most extreme weather differences I’ve know in my 27 years in the industry. From soaked wet through to covered in snow to bone dry all what seemed to be just a few days.
The course has however come through all this well and is now almost back to it’s best! We still have a few patches on a couple of greens which we are working on every few days. The greens have received more maintenance than normal with top dressing and scarifying top of the list. This will continue throughout the season so thank you for your patience when we do this work. The height of cut has been lowered to 3.5mm and continuing our successful fertiliser programme, the greens are looking great and running true.
Our tees are holding up well, they have been divoted and seeded this week and we have been working on the newly turfed 1st tee. We aim to have this in play by the end of June.
All the bunkers have been edged and we are topping them up with some much needed sand. The 3rd greenside bunker is now fully back into play and is certainly coming into use.
The fashion for this year is to have two tone block cut fairways, this is mainly down to the lower cutting times and cost savings, here at Tilgate we love the traditional cross cut checkered style and our fairways are some of the best examples in the area of this style.
The last thing I would to say is to welcome Jordan Newman to our Greenkeeping team. Jordan has been working in the pro shop for a while but has transferred to all things green and is proving to be a helpful asset to the course and team.

Don’t take our word for it, these are just some of our recent reviews!
One of the nicest courses I have played in a while. Interesting layout and excellent value for money. We will definitely visit again this summer.
– 9th June
Having played the course on and off for close on 20 years, it is currently in the best condition I have ever seen it which is a testimony to all the hard work that has been undertaken over the past 18 months or so.

The course was in very good condition.

It offers you the opportunity to meet some new playing partners, win prize money to spend on anything here at Tilgate Forest Golf Centre, the chance to get a handicap, (or play handicap changing rounds if you already have one), and of course the ability to enjoy a round of golf in half the amount of time it would normally take you.

For pay and play members it’s £12.00 to enter which includes £2.00 prize money, which goes into the prize pot to be awarded to the lucky winner when the pot reaches £50.00.
For one month or 12 month members its just £2.00 to enter.
