Designed and built by Arnold Palmer, this stunning setting represents a true paradise for those willing to challenge what is widely acclaimed as one of the finest links courses in the world. Smitten at first sight, Palmer would later go on record with this memorable quote: “I may have designed the first nine, but surely God designed the back nine.” It comes as no surprise to learn that, due to the majestic beauty of this setting, Palmer choose it to be his first and, arguably, his finest golf course in Europe.
Tralee, in addition to boasting a clear view of the Atlantic Ocean from every hole, has a fully qualified resident professional, fully stocked Pro Shop, a spacious and comfortable restaurant and bar and it has earned a reputation for having a most friendly and relaxed atmosphere for members and visitors alike. A trip to Southwest Ireland could not be complete without playing this most precious and unpretentious of golfing jewels.
The front nine holes are much gentler than the back, with the 2nd, 3rd and 8th being fantastic. On the turn you are faced with dunes so big that you’ll be begging for mercy. On holes 12 to 17 you are faced with huge dunes with flashes of fairway and some sky high greens.
Tralee is an amazing golfing experience which is evident in the masterpiece that genius Arnold Palmer’s vision has created.
