It took Mr. Fazio 21 months to make Adare Manor one of the highest-end golf and hotel experiences in the world. Rory McIlroy, Shane Lowry, Padraig Harrington, and Paul McGinley were on hand to re-open the course in 2018.

Golf Course Review

The Golf Course at Adare Manor was originally a Robert Trent Jones Jr design which has been completely overhauled by Tom Fazio. The course will host the Ryder Cup in 2027 and has been designed to challenge the best on the largest stages.

The motto at the resort is: Beyond Everything. The Golf Course at Adare Manor certainly fits that description.

Built to host the golf’s greatest event, the setup follows similar lines as previous European hosts such as Le Golf Nationale and Celtic Manor… long with risk and reward coming in the form of water. Located on the banks of the River Maigue, it is over 7500 yards from the tips and plays to a par of 72 with water coming into play on 14 holes.
