The course at Adare Manor in County Limerick, Ireland, has recently undergone a major overhaul led by Fazio Design. GCA spoke with Tom Fazio about his firm's work, and how the course is likely to play once it reopens later this year. What do you consider to be the most significant features of this project? Adare Manor has always been a great fun place to stay and enjoy Irish hospitality with a beautiful setting along the River Maigue.
Speak with anyone involved in the renovation of the golf course at Adare Manor and the superlatives will quickly start to flow. You’ll hear awe and wonder in their voices, a first indication that this project is different to the norm. The original course – designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. and opened in 1995 – has been completely overhauled, with an investment in quality that is above and beyond the realms of most ‘ordinary’ golf projects.
The Worcestershire Golf Club, in the Malvern Hills in England, is on track to complete a major irrigation renovation project this month. The work, which began in October 2017, involves the installation of a new pumping station, a Rain Bird IC Stratus II Central Control System incorporating its latest Version 8 software and valve-in-head rotors on greens and aprons. Pipework for irrigating tees is being installed now, ready for the planned rebuilding of tees over the next three years.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
