    Default Fair-green

    Hola. En el índice de un libro me aparece lo siguiente en el título de un capítulo: The Fair-green of Palmerstown.
    ¿Qué significa "Fair-green" en castellano?
    Gracias por vuestra ayuda.

    Yo no juego golf asi que no estoy muy seguro pero siempre asocio Fair green con un campo de golf.

    Asi que "The Fair-green of Palmerstown" significario el campo de golf de la ciudad de Palmerstwon.

    Californiaman: As used in golf, the two phrases are separate. The "fairway" is the playing area from tee to green. The green is the putting surface.

    From what I gather the term "green" in England applies to any maintained open area with grass...like a park, football field, cricket field, town square, bowling green, etc.
    The term "fair" seems a little random but applies to an event.

    The fair-green of Palmerstown is such a place. Not a golf course but a place where, in the book, they were holding some sort of firearms shooting competition.

    Chapter 4 [Joseph S. Le Fanu's Novel: House by the Church-Yard]


    Based on the definitions I have found a "fair green" or "fair-green" means a place, or green, where public events and assemblies, or "fairs", are held.

    The only word I can think of in Spanish would be: Zocalo...which is a public square in Mexico.
