The first course in Europe to be designed by the legendary Arnold Palmer, Tralee has matured into a classic links that belies its relative youth.

There are two distinct nines, the first playing closer to the sea and being on more open ground.

The second nine is set in much taller sand dunes and plays more up and down – occasionally a wild experience, but great fun.  “I designed the first nine, but surely God designed the back nine,” is how Palmer sums it up.

Often said to be the most picturesque course in Ireland, Tralee naturally offers fantastic views. SP

+ Spectacular; wild and beautiful; excellent par 3s
– Possibly too tough for some; slightly unnatural fairway contouring
