The first UYOA pilot event was held at
Tilgate Forest Park Golf Club in Sussex.
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. Famous for its tree-lined fairways, tight doglegs and well-guarded greens, the Par 72 course is both challenging and rewarding for all golfers.
The video above is now how Tilgate
looks, as I recall back in 1998 (and details and memories are
scarce), the club house was some beaten up old timber building
and we finished the day in the dark too. I believe Dan Green won
this event but little other memories are forth coming.
If anyone has any more information or
memories of this day it would be great to add them here - please
contact UYOA via the contact page.
