Ryder Cup venues have a variety of tactics for increasing interest in their respective competitions. They try to localize the staid event so that it feels like home to the different European players, they indulge the local coffee culture, and one European village has turned itself into a tourist haven for those wanting to enjoy a winemaking experience.
Travel operators from top winemaking regions around the world have been busily making plans to participate in the 2022-24 European Ryder Cup tournaments. But where will the matches be held?
In the close confines of the racehorse paddock-turned-canyon at what is a privately owned 13,500 acre estate, the new Adare Manor will provide a more upscale option than the rambling rural properties usually used. The team from Adare Manor has already scoured Ireland for research trips and planning conferences since 2015.
Planning documents show that the construction of the facility, which will eventually house up to 5,500 spectators, will start in 2019.
