New Padraig Harrington large Putting green in Marley Park

    Sounds great. Only around the corner from me. I grew up on the par 3 and it was a big disappointment when they put the astro in.

    Hopefully they model it on the Himalayas in St. Andrews. Could have some craic up there with a bunch of mates

    "The design and construction began in recent months, with the next step being to seed the putting green with a blend of grasses which are both indigenous and sustainable."

    I'd be curious as to how this will be maintained. Given that it's a free amenity, you could have all types of characters hanging out on the putting green at all times of the day and night. When I heard about it first, I'd assumed it was artificial grass that was being used.

    Harro is on the Late Late Show tonight so I guess he'll talk about it then.

    I presume DLR county council will maintain it. Probably with equipment and training donated by the various stakeholders.
