Tralee Golf Club
First Established: 1896
Designed By: Arnold Palmer
Tralee Golf Club sits adjacent to the Atlantic coast, on the Wild Atlantic Way, in the beautiful county of Kerry. Its current layout was designed by none other than the experienced golfing genius and legend Arnold Palmer, who chose Tralee to be his first, and arguably finest, links course design. Mr. Palmer is credited as saying that he was responsible for the layout of the front nine, while God Himself is responsible for the back nine holes, and if you wisely decide to play this magnificent course you’ll discover why.
The magnificent 360° natural beauty throughout the length and breadth of Tralee golf course, the immediate area’s varied history (involving the Spanish Armada, smugglers, the Easter Rising, as well as stunning scenes used in the movie ‘Ryan’s Daughter’), and the vision of the late, great Mr. Palmer make this location and the course itself something truly special, and somewhere you must not leave out of your golfing tour in this, not-to-be-missed part of Ireland.
