ADARE GOLF MANOR
The 840 acre estate at Adare Manor was purchased by an Irish-American businessman who chanced to meet Robert Trent-Jones Senior in Chicago. Mr. Jones was persuaded to build a golf course outside North America for the first time and the result is a magnificent championship test. The River Maigue flows alongside the manor and also features prominently on several holes including the magnificent finishing hole where two shots are threatened the whole way up the left hand side before an approach that must be played across the river to the green - with little margin for error.
Designer: Robert Trent Jones (1995)
