    Hi,
    Hope this is the right place, but has anyone any info on the golf course in st Anne's Park? Ive seen it referred to as both a par 3 course and as a pitch and putt course? Is it just a standard enough p&p course that has holes less than 70m or are there a few longer holes? Anyone that has any info would be great, thanks

    It's a par three. Made mistake of only bringing a 56 degree wedge. Only a handful of holes need more than that to be fair

    https://www.facebook.com/stannesparkgolf/posts/158375762442534 says they should be open after lockdown ends

    It is a lovely set up - but the last few times I was there , the condition was not the best. This was even before Covid. Grass was too long, greens had seen better days.

    I'm not sure who is running it, I think Dublin City Council parks. But over the last 20 - 30 years or so - public operation of golfing facilities has slowly been withdrawn.

    But is still there I guess. I can understand it not being maintained too well - there is just so much to do in St Anne's park from a maintenance perspective.

    Yes this is a different spot - but is the sort of example where there has been a general degrading of pitch and putt and par 3 in the city. Imagine Deer Park probably another one on way out or gone ?

    Green keeper from tolka valley is moving up there this week, he is a lovely dedicated man so should see a big improvement in the coming weeks.


    Council look after the course, target golf based in manyooth look after the club house and rentals etc sound bunch of lads.


    Hoping to play as much as i can over the x-mas

    Would be a fantastic facility and busy - if a bit of effort put in. There is not that many options around.

    Good to hear.

    Thanks for the help, ended up playing a round at a full course when I was around over Christmas, might play the par 3 in either st.Anne's or malahide if we ever get back to some bit of normality
