This course is to be named host of 2026 Ryder Cup TODAY!

Ryder Cup Trophy

A memorable week for golf in Ireland is set to get a whole lot more special today with the announcement that Adare Manor is to host the 2026 Ryder Cup.

According to a report in the Irish Independent, a long-mooted deal for the Limerick resort to stage the biennial battle was thrashed out last week and is expected to be confirmed today.

It is thought that the Irish sports minister, Shane Ross, will go to the government to ask for permission to sign a financial agreement with the European Tour to stage the match. That, it is being reported, should be nothing more than a formality.

The announcement will come just days on from Shane Lowry's emphatic Open Championship win - the tenth win by Irish golfers in the last 50 majors. 

The 2026 Ryder Cup will come exactly twenty years on from the contest's previous visit to the Emerald Isle. The K Club, near Dublin, played host to a thumping win for Ian Woosnam's European side in 2006 at the expense of Tom Lehman's American team.
