Tralee Golf Club
Tralee Golf Club overview
Golf has been played in Tralee since 1896, initially on a 9-hole golf course a short distance from the current site. In 1984 Arnold Palmer was brought in to build a new 18-hole links course that has gone onto receive global praise.
The clubhouse is modern in design, the pro-shop is well-stocked, and the golf academy is home to state-of-the-art coaching technology along with a grass driving range that can accommodate 25 golfers at one time. The restaurant and bar offer great views across the golf course and out to the Atlantic Ocean.
The par-3, 3rd hole is a magnificent short hole. Measuring almost 200 yards from the tournament tees it offers stunning views over the Atlantic with a ruined 12th-century castle standing behind the green. Anything hit to the right on this hole will simply be swallowed by the rocks and sea.

The 17th hole at Tralee is named ‘Ryan’s Daughter’ as a homage to the Oscar-winning movie of the same name from 1970 which used the dramatic Tralee coastline in the film.
