With the Desmond Castle (1200 AD) as a magnificient backdrop this 18 hole parkland course offers a historic Irish golfing experience. The tree lined fairways offer a challenge to all comers.
This course was designed in the late 1890's by Scottish professional Ben Sayers at the request of the 4th. Earl of Dunraven. The course was completed in 1900.
The foundations of the current club were formed when the club affiliated to the GUI in 1932.
Adare has produced many great golfers but perhaps its most famous son was Jackie Harrington. Jackie was capped many times for Ireland but his finest hour came when he won the Irish Close Championship at Ballybunion in 1979.
The current 18 hole course was opened in 1992, designed by Eddie Hackett. It was indeed fitting that the present Earl of Dunraven was President of the club for the centenary year in 2000.
Visitors are very welcome to Adare Manor Golf Club. Adare Manor GC is one of the few Irish woodland courses that stay open year round.
This beautiful woodland course, which is renowned for its tree-lined fairways, testing greens and historical ruins, offers both the amateur and professional a stern challenge.
The clubhouse offers an extensive lunch and dinner menu. Golf clubs are available for hire from the club and trolleys are available at the first tee box.
