With history and spectacular views of the Atlantic, Tralee offers one of the best backdrops of any golf course.

Tralee golf course is host to a number of historical landmarks that have their place in Irish folklore. The tower located behind the 3rd green dates back to the 1190’s.

Don’t be fooled by the scenery though, this course, designed by Arnold Palmer, will challenge you. With a relatively flat front 9, don’t sit back and relax because the back 9 will test your skills. Where accuracy is always of major importance in Links golf, the par 4, 12th hole confirms any doubters. Playing downhill with heavy rough to the right and a wall on the left be sure to choose your club carefully. Don’t relax yet though as your approach to the green has to be pin point.

“I designed the first nine but surely God designed the back nine” was the statement made by course designer Arnold Palmer about his first, and arguably his best, European designed course.
