The project consisted of the construction of a 9 hole Par 3 golf course within a public park.  The course incorporates natural grass fairways and roughs with synthetic tee and green surfaces.  There are 2 attenuation lakes that collect the water from all the drainage on site.  There are cart paths from tee to green with an intensive drainage system that ensures all year round playability.  It also incorporates a 9 hole putting course.  EGS took the project from design through to handover of a grown-in course prepared for play.  The course is now a successful attraction within the Marlay Park for both beginners and seasoned golfers.
