In Volume 1 of The Confidential Guide to Golf Courses, Tom Doak published that.
“If you’re looking for a posh manor house hotel to stay at, you won’t go wrong at Adare, on the road from Shannon down to the Ring of Kerry. Several holes of the new golf course play beside or across the adjacent river, most notably on the finishing par-5, with its trademark RTJ heroic option to go for the green in two across the river.”
Adare Manor received a score of 4 out of 10 from Tom Doak.
The golf course was redesigned by American architect Tom Fazio, and reopened in 2018 after an exhibition match featuring Rory McIlroy, Padraig Harrington, Shane Lowry and Paul McGinley.
In 2019 it was announced that Adare Manor will host the 2026 Ryder Cup matches.
