There is a distinctly Irish feel to the latest JP McManus Pro-Am announcement, with Niall Horan, named at the weekend as one of the richest young stars in the music world and Fifty Shades of Grey star, Jamie Dornan set to tee it up at Adare Manor in County Limerick next year.
The pair will join an ever-growing list of celebrities and professionals at the charity event in July 2020, with Mark Wahlberg and Hugh Grant already confirmed to play, alongside Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose and more from the professional side.
While Horan, who hails from Mullingar, and Dornan, from McIlroy’s hometown of Hollywood, Co. Down, will be making their debut at the popular event, the pair are avid golfers and tournament host JP McManus said he was delighted they will be returning home for the tournament.
“It’s fantastic that two home-grown stars will be present at Adare Manor next year and I thank both Niall and Jamie for their commitment. We’ve many more exciting announcements to make very soon ahead of what we hope will be a fantastic event for the patrons and players alike.”
The event takes place July 6th – 7th 2020 at the Tom Fazio redesigned Golf Course at Adare Manor. The course, along with the Adare Manor Hotel, reopened last year after an extensive refurbishment which earned the hotel the prestigious ‘Global Hotel of the Year’ award in the Virtuoso ‘Best of the Best Awards 2018’ in Las Vegas.
Once again, charitable organisations in the Mid-West will benefit from the Pro-Am, with many millions raised since the event was first held in 1990. More celebrity and professional announcements will be made in the coming weeks and months.
