NEWS Adare to host Ryder Cup


Extra benefits from Turf Rewards


This year there are some important new additions and upgrades to benefit from, along with a host of new qualifying ICL and Syngenta products and packages. A new look Turf Rewards website is also easier and faster to see what is available and to make claims.


Operated by ICL and Syngenta, Turf Rewards includes offers to improve turf quality, provide education, aid business management and enhance the environment.


ICL UK Sales & Development Manager, Ed Carter, reported the popular scheme has continued to grow year-on-year: “Not only do people get great quality products, but there's the opportunity to improve turf management, business performance and the whole team - at no added cost.”


“Some of these tools may be difficult to get directly from the turf management budget, but Turf Rewards makes them accessible and affordable.”


Customers simply log their purchases of qualifying Syngenta and ICL products from any authorised distributor on the Turf Rewards website, and points are automatically added to their account.


Glenn Kirby, Syngenta Technical Manager, highlighted that many of the Turf Rewards offers have been selected to improve Integrated Turf Management programmes and get the best results from the qualifying products involved.


“Using tools such as remote sensors and precision measuring devices can help with better decision-making processes. Turf Rewards makes some of the latest technology readily available, without additional club investment."


This season there is greater emphasis on ITM packages involving ICL nutrition and Syngenta fungicide programmes designed to optimise turf health and surface quality. Some popular products and combinations carry double Turf Reward points to multiply the benefits for customers.


Adare Manor in Ireland is named 2026 Ryder Cup venue


Adare Manor in Ireland has been confirmed as the host course for the 2026 Ryder Cup. A deal struck between the Irish government and European Tour organisers will bring the biennial tournament between Europe and the USA to Limerick.


The news came just four days after Irishman Shane Lowry won the Open at Portrush.


“It will be a fantastic occasion for everyone on the island of Ireland, and for visitors from both sides of the Atlantic,” said Taoiseach Leo Varadkar.


The event was last staged in Ireland at the K Club near Dublin in 2006.


It's believed the cost to the Irish government will be tens of million of euros, but the benefit to the economy is estimated at more than 160m euros.


“It is great news for Ireland, and for County Limerick and the west of Ireland in particular,” the Taoiseach added.


“Over the years, Irish captains and Irish players have played a huge role in the success of the European team.”


“I am sure that, when the Ryder Cup comes to Adare, we will see many more great sporting


memories created, and great sporting friendships forged.”


As part of the deal, which was rubber-stamped at an Irish cabinet meeting in Donegal, the future of the Irish Open has also been secured until 2026.


That tournament will continue to be staged on a rotational basis between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.


“We are delighted to announce The 2026 Ryder Cup will be staged in Ireland at Adare Manor, which is a world class venue, both in terms of the golf course and the wider resort facilities,” said Guy Kinnings, European Ryder Cup Director.


“Today’s announcement would not have been possible without the support of An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and the Irish Government who are in receipt of our grateful and heartfelt thanks.”


“Months of careful negotiation behind the scenes have seen us arrive at this point and we could not be happier to be able to take golf’s greatest team contest back to Ireland.”


Matt completes his 100th marathon race


It has taken him 26.2 years, but Matt Pullen, head groundsman at The Leys School, completed his 100th marathon last month.


He completed his first, the London Marathon, in 1993 when he was 18 years old.


And he chose Northampton for his 100th so friends and family could watch.

Over the years, Matt, 44, has run the London Marathon 21 times and was in New York after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.


“The most memorable was straight after 9/11 -


doing New York that year and being part of the running community,” he said.


Matt, who has also run ultra-marathons and says he has a very understanding wife, added: “There are more people who have climbed Everest, and I believe more people in Great Britain have swum the Channel, than have run 100 marathons.”


And he’s not stopping at 100 - Matt has plans for more races, including Chicago later this year.
