Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council have announced they are working with Padraig Harrington and his team on the development of a 3000sqm putting course in Marlay Park, writes Amy Rohu.

It is being designed and built to be publicly accessible within the Park and aims to add to the amenities already available there. It is located at the site of the original Marlay Playground, surrounded by mature hedging and trees, and will be easily accessed from all parts of the Park.

It has been designed and built in as sustainable a manner as possible, using materials already available within the Park and locally.

Speaking about the announcement, Padraig Harrington said:

“I have always been in awe of the popularity of the Himalayas Putting Course in St. Andrews and wanted to be involved in providing something similar for the people of Ireland to allow them to experience golf in a fun and family focused setting.”

An Cathaoirleach of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council, Cllr Lettie McCarthy added:

“Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council is dedicated to maintaining and developing the very best in publicly accessible sports and leisure facilities to the citizens of the county and is very proud of this new partnership with one of Ireland’s greatest sports stars. We very much look forward to its official opening in Spring 2022.”
