Experts In Every Sense

Meet Gary Howie, our Head Golf Professional

Born and bred in West Kilbride - a small Scottish seaside village just 20 minutes north of golfing greats such as Royal Troon and Prestwick - Gary turned professional in 1999. After playing with Sergio Garcia at Turnberry as a 14 year old, watching Sandy Lyle winning the Masters in 1988 and then seeing Christy O’Connor Junior’s famous 2-iron at the 18th hole of The Belfry, he really started to become interested in the game.

He proclaims The Green Monkey in Barbados as the best maintained course he has ever had the privilege to play, Royal Troon as his favourite links courses, our very own Adare Manor as the top inland courses and nine 3s and nine 4s, as his best ever round.

After completing his PGA training at his home club in Scotland, he spent two seasons at Killarney Golf Club and 18 months at Golf Clément Ader in Paris, before joining us in Adare in April 2007.

Gary’s here to help

Gary will be on hand in our brand new pro shop when Golf At Adare Manor opens in Autumn 2017. He’ll be able to help you with anything you need to make your day more enjoyable including renting golf clubs, shoes, drive carts, pull carts, caddies and even practice time on the driving range.

And if you’re looking for something smart and comfortable to wear on the course, he can help you pick out something from our extensive range of top-line brands such as Zero Restriction, Galvin Green and Peter Millar, among others.

The Pro Shop will be open at 8:00am every morning Monday- Friday and at 7:30am at weekends.
