For an unprecedented ninth consecutive year, Golf Digest Ireland has honored the Robert Trent Jones, Sr., course at Adare Manor Castle & Golf Resort as the No.1 Parkland Course in Ireland. The internationally acclaimed 18-hole Championship Course has won this prestigious award every year since its inception in 2005. Designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr., the course is a favorite of professionals, amateurs and celebrities.

General Manager Anita Higgins said, “We are thrilled to be named the No. 1 Parkland Course in Ireland yet again, for the 9th year in a row. We have worked hard to maintain our golf facilities to the highest of standards. Our award-winning golf course is a credit to our committed and skilled golf team.”

Adare Golf Club, which opened in 1995, is set amid magnificent mature trees and incorporates many aquatic features into the course design, including a 14-acre lake anchoring the front nine holes and the River Maigue, which meanders through the entire golf course. The course measures 7,453 yards (the shortest route amounts to 5,082 yards) and occupies 230 acres of lush Irish countryside. The course record of 64 was shot by Lee Westwood during the Irish Open 2008.

Adare Golf Club’s Golf Pro Gary Howie stated, “The course is a Robert Trent Jones, Sr., masterpiece, and this prestigious award, received now nine times in a row, is a tribute to his vision and the professionalism of our golf management team. We are extremely honored to receive this award!”
