Announced: Adare Manor in Adare, Ireland, will play host to the 2026 Ryder Cup, according to Ryder Cup Europe, the consortium that manages the biennial match between Europe and the U.S. It will be Ireland’s second staging of the Ryder Cup, after Europe’s 18½-9½ drubbing of the U.S. in the 2006 match at The K Club. Adare Manor, a 1995 Robert Trent Jones Sr. design in southwest Ireland, near Limerick, played host to the Irish Open in 2007 and 2008. The news came four days after Ireland’s Shane Lowry won the British Open at Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland. The Ryder Cup will be played at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wis., in 2020, followed by Marco Simone in Italy (2022) and Bethpage State Park’s Black Course in Farmingdale, N.Y. (2024). The U.S. leads the series, 26-14-2, but Europe has won nine of the past 12 matches, including last year’s 17½-10½ rout at Le Golf National in France.
