The Course

Masterfully designed, magnificently maintained, and perfectly set within the glorious estate of one of Europe’s most spectacular manor house hotels, The Golf Course at Adare Manor is ready to take its place among the best championship courses in the world.

World-renowned golf course designer Tom Fazio spearheaded the comprehensive redesign and has taken what was already an award-winning course and transformed it into a parkland paradise befitting a country in the top tier of global golfing destinations. The new course has been created in harmony with the outstanding natural beauty of its surroundings: lush, softly rolling terrain, mature tree scaping, and the sweeping banks of the River Maigue.

Each hole of The Golf Course at Adare Manor could be crowned the feature hole: each one has been entirely redesigned and reconstructed, with the very latest technology and course innovations, creating a challenging, characterful, and profoundly satisfying playing experience for golfers of every level. The final result is a course that is at once strategic and soulful, playable in all conditions, and future-proofed in preparation for premiere amateur and professional golf events.

Construction included greens and bunkers, as well as significant underground installations for drainage, and wiring for tournament power, media and telecommunications. The new course features cutting-edge SubAir technology, marking its spot among the best designed and finest maintained golf courses in Europe. Cared for by an experienced, passionate team of devoted greenkeepers, the condition of this course and its velvet-smooth Pure Distinction bent grass greens is unrivalled. Celebrated Irish golfers Rory McIlroy, Padraig Harrington, Paul McGinley and Shane Lowry joined together for a charity match to hit the inaugural tee shots, marking the milestone grand opening. Since reopening, the course has collected numerous global accolades and has been announced as the host venue for the staging of the 2027 Ryder Cup.

Off the course, this commitment to perfection continues in the perfectly appointed clubhouse. Luxurious, stylish, with a modern jazz-age sensibility and every convenience and indulgence you could require, The Carriage House is a worthy counterpart to Europe’s finest new golf course. This is where you will find our expert team and comprehensively stocked Pro Shop, our elegantly welcoming locker rooms, and exciting options for food, drink, and relaxation. The Carriage House features a world-class restaurant managed by our Director of Culinary, Loughlin Druhan; a smart and lively bar serving light bites and a remarkable collection of fine wines, craft beers, and sophisticated cocktails; a gorgeous covered Terrace with panoramic views of the greens; and our snug and comfortable Cigar Lounge.

Taken together, The Golf Course at Adare Manor provides an unforgettable experience designed to inspire, challenge, and captivate the most demanding and spirited golf enthusiasts in the world.
