Adare Manor has announced a tree planting initiative as it takes sustainable steps towards the 2027 Ryder Cup and its centenary hosting duties.

During this year’s JP McManus Pro-Am, Adare Manor will celebrate every birdie made, from both professionals and amateurs, by planting at least five new sapling trees. The resort has pledged to plant the trees within its grounds, which will add to the 16,000 native trees that they have planted at the resort since 2016.

The announcement marks the future Ryder Cup resort’s latest commitment to creating a greener future through its elevated sustainability agenda, with plans that also include:

• Eliminating food waste through the use of an on-site biodigester and recycling it into social enriching compost.

• Constructing new wetlands to create land-based carbon storage to aid water quality and wildlife inhabitation.

• Introducing seven hives of honeybees to catalyse resort pollination and thriving flora.

• Increasing on-site energy provided via the existing resort solar farm, which already supplies electrical demand for laundry and dry cleaning facilities, from 21 to 60 percent.

• Enhancing sustainable water supply to ensure the golf course and gardens are self-contained using its on-site lakes.

Alan MacDonnell, The Golf Course at Adare Manor’s superintendent, said: “Our natural surroundings provide a platform for everything that we do, and we are devoted to returning the same nurture and care to our beautiful home that it has so unconditionally granted to us. We look forward to witnessing the results of our actions today over the coming years, and the green road ahead to 2027.”
