First time playing Walked Perfect weather

We enjoyed our experience, the first golf course we ever played with a cemetery and the relic of a monastery in the middle of the course. The course is a very nice, in American terms, Muni. Course conditions are good, well maintained. The greens were good, rolling true, easy to read. Three holes share the same tee box complex, with teeing areas separated by shrubs. The rental clubs were marginal. The lady taking our reservations and checking us in two days later was a bit condescending. On the day we walked in for reservations I was wearing a jacket embroidered with the name of the Educational Institute at which I coach along with the title COACH. However, she still insisted on giving us a lecture on proper attire, including shoes. On the day of play, I was wearing a jacket of an amateur golf association as well as the title "RULES OFFICIAL". She lectured us on golf etiquette and dress code prior to releasing us to play. However, after the round several members asked us our impression of the course and thanked us for playing there.

This course, a former host of the Irish Open, is at the Adare Manor Resort and can easily be confused with the Adare Manor Golf Course next door. (The photo above is actually from the latter!) This is a world-class course with corresponding everything. Beautiful and challenging with several holes along the River Maigue and a small lake. Course was in great shape, except they had just punched and sanded the greens which when mowed in the damp made putting very tough. (Got a deal including rental clubs because of it.) Spectacular views of the Manor itself coming in on both nines. Superb facilities and a great staff. Course winds through the trees with some elevation changes for extra challenges.

Excellent course in excellent condition for the month of December. Slight delay in tee-off time due to frost, but given a bucket of complimentary balls for the range while waiting. Full teeboxes and greens throughout and not one area of 'ground under repair' on the course. Very friendly and accommodating staff with fantastic after golf facilities, i.e. locker rooms, bar, restaurant. Very good value for the price paid.

Adare Manor is an outstanding place to stay and play! You won't believe your eyes when you walk through this totally renovated castle hotel...it's truly awesome! Everyone who works there is super friendly, including the golf staff. The course is in GREAT shape, the greens are receptive and fast, and the pace of play is wonderful!

Adare Manor is an incredibly underrated course in Ireland, hidden behind the traditional links courses. However it easily holds its own against some of the bigger and more popular tracks.

Adare is meticulously maintained, fairways and greens in perfect condition. A light rain made everything a little slower, but still very challenging with quite a few risk/reward shots to be had. Pin placements for the day made scoring a challenge, but still fair. I was one of the early tee times and was able to make it through 18 in 2:30 hours.

Highly recommend you add this to your list of courses to try when in Ireland. More than worth it!

course is nice, well maintained greens, some spotty areas in fairways. As far as value for money in Ireland I would give it a 6-7 out of ten. When the wind blows(which it does everyday) the course gets much harder. Make sure you bring rain gear, you'll need it by the end of your round. Walking is a must since electric carts are so expensive-bring a lightweight stand bag. Golfnow price is the same price as people staying at resort!!
