Adare Manor reopens after extensive winter maintenance programme

1.02pm 13th March 2019 - Courses

Adare Manor has reopened its fairways to golfers for the season after an extensive and thorough maintenance program to ensure the course continues to play in first-class condition to members, guests and hotel residents throughout the season.

Approaching the first anniversary since the redesign was completed last April, the greens team the County Limerick resort has left no stone unturned in the first round of maintenance.

The greens at Adare have been hand-picked to ensure pristine putting surfaces

The putting surfaces have received special attention, with Poa Annua being hand-picked from the Pure Distinction Bentgrass greens to achieve pristine putting conditions, while old pitch marks and imperfections have also been repaired by hand with plugs from the resort’s own turf nursery.

The greenkeeping team has also been carefully adjusting the sand depths of the 42 bunkers to achieve the desired level of three inches on the faces and four inches on the bases, that will produce consistent and uniform lies in bunkers across the course.

Alan McDonnell, Superintendent at Adare Manor, commented: “There has been a huge commitment by the whole greenkeeping team this winter to ensure the course is in great shape for the season ahead. We are exceptionally proud of the conditioning we are able to maintain here. The Irish winter is not always kind, and it can make for a challenging time during maintenance to keep the standards we have become used to, but the hours of hard work and dedication of the team has really allowed the quality of the course to shine through.”
