Bookie offers VERY short odds on this course hosting 2026 Ryder Cup

Ryder Cup Trophy

It might still be eight years away but one leading bookmaker has made one course the absolute standout favourite to host the 2026 Ryder Cup.

Betfair has priced Adare Manor in Ireland as the 1/9 favourite to stage the match. It is the only specific course that it has currently listed in the betting.

An ‘England Venue’ is the next most likely host at 5/1, with a ‘Spain Venue’ going off at 14/1.
