Golf Course/
Tralee

In terms of scenery, Tralee Golf Club has it all: a rocky harbour, a castle ruin, beaches, and last but not least, a stunning golf course.

The course is historically significant on many levels, as a vessel from the Spanish Armada sailed by the 17th hole in 1588, and the scenery of the first and second holes were featured in the beach scenes of the 1970 Academy Award Winning Film Ryan's Daughter.

All the caddies at Tralee Golf Club are also members of the club, making for a relaxed and sociable atmosphere during your golf break.

Although the course was built and designed by Arnold Palmer, the world-renown golfer and businessman claimed that he had some outside help, commenting: “I may have designed the first nine, but surely God designed the back nine."

Tralee was the first European course to be designed by Palmer and is one of the most beautiful. While the view may be a peaceful one, playing the course most certainly is not. Holes become increasingly intimidating as golfers make their way towards the back nine, which are dominated by large dunes.

Yet, as prodigiously daunting as it may seem, masters of the traditional bump-and-run method will be rewarded on this enjoyable links course.
