Adare Manor in Ireland, venue for the 2026 Ryder Cup, is celebrating its second birthday this week.
Since re-opening on April 20, 2018, following a major course renovation carried out by Tom Fazio, the luxury Limerick-based venue has won numerous awards and accolades, during which time over 15,000 rounds per year have been played by members and guests.
In addition to being awarded hosting duties for the 2026 Ryder Cup, the course collected the title of ‘Ireland’s Best Golf Course’ at the World Golf Awards, IGTOA’s ‘Parkland Golf Course of the Year’ and ‘Golf Resort of the Year’ awards, along with several other high profile listings amongst the rankings from some of golf’s most reputable media outlets.
Colm Hannon, Adare Manor’s CEO, said: “The achievements this year have been nothing short of unforgettable, and the golf course goes from strength to strength since reopening. The course continues to exceed expectations, which is the team’s goal here every day.
“To be chosen as the 2026 Ryder Cup host venue really did cap off another brilliant year, and we’re very proud to be bringing the tournament back to Ireland for the first time in 20 years and, in particular, to the Limerick region. The announcement was a great honour for the team and just reward for their commitment and shared passion to deliver a world-class golf course and guest experience. It really was a magical moment for Adare Manor, and simply motivates us to keep on delivering a golfing experience like nowhere else in the world.”
Like all courses in the UK and Ireland, Adare Manor is currently closed as a result of the Coronavirus outbreak.
