THE postponement of this year’s Ryder Cup at the Whistling Straits course in Wisconsin has put Adare Manor in line to stage the tournament in its centenary year of 2027.
The Limerick venue was due to host the event in 2026 but because of the decision to postpone the 2020 event to next year because of the Covid-19 pandemic, all future tournaments have been deferred by twelve months.
Limerick Fianna Fáil TD and Minister of State Niall Collins said that the revised schedule would have positive implications.
“Staging an event like the Ryder Cup will give Limerick the chance to showcase the best of what Ireland has to offer and even with the postponement, the mid-west will be ready to put on a great show”, Deputy Collins added.
Confirmation that Adare Manor will host the centenary Ryder Cup followed an announcement that it has been named on the ‘top 10’ list of resort hotels in the UK and Ireland by US travel magazine, Travel + Leisure.
