What the club says: Set within the magnificent wooded countryside of the High Weald of Sussex adjoining Tilgate Forest Park, this outstanding location offers unparalleled views. The park covers some 400 acres and was once part of the Tilgate Estate, which covered much of the surrounding area. Tilgate Forest is now classified as a country park and conservation area with golf being just one of the many activities on offer.

Not worth t

Sadly the course is in the poorest condition I have ever seen. It looks like it's been used by walkers for many months. No fairway grass, Poor greens, temporary greens, swathes of walkers, huge areas of bare patches that will not recover this year. The only positive was seeing some greens under reconstruction. My advice, stay away !

I played Tilgate this morning and they have acquired a new machine for rolling the greens and what a difference.
They are the quickest I've seen them ever.
All fairways cut 3 temp greens while they mature but great thinking man's course can't just whack the driver every hole.
Thanks again Tim

No course care and does not deserve 3.8 rating

A friend booked tee times for end of December to play here, I saw a 3.82 rating and read reviews here, I should have been warned by the scattering of terrible reviews. It was very much that way. What is a nice course layout is ruined by complete lack of maintenance, doesn\'t look like a groundsmen has visited in months. All mats for tees, 7 greens were temporary and the others may as well have been, grass was an inch thick on greens.

not as bad as the reviews I read

Yes, there are 6 temporary greens, and they are a pain, but the other greens were Ok for this time of year. Had to play of mats which I loathe and couldn't see why. Course directions were poor too.

It’s not a golf course it’s a public park, don’t waste your money on playing here, they are shutting courses down around this area that are 100 times better than Tilgate, it should be the one to go. People walking over greens with their dogs, dog mess in the rough. It was hard to tell which 5 greens were temporary as all are in such bad condition. Don’t waste your money, they should pay you to play there.

The course is coming back to its best after a difficult start to the year with Coronavirus, and now that the greens are being worked on again, with some rain it should be back to its brilliant best soon.

Let down by greens

Such an enjoyable, tight course woven through the trees. Only let down by the state of the greens.

Great layout, beautiful flowers and foliage

Very beautiful but challenging layout. Narrow fairways, deep forest and rough. Fairways were rock hard, providing lots of roll, even when you didn't want it. Greens very patchy.
