Course Description


Description:



Tralee is one Ireland’s exciting and captivating
courses which keeps the player’s attention from the first tee to the very end
of the play, thank to its unique design which challenges every senses.  If we can believe the word of mouth, Palmer
designed the first nine holes but the he left all the rest to Mother Nature.
The first nine ones are playing through the links land, meanwhile the rest are
situated near the coastline offering a deluxe view. The combination and the
variety of holes are rich and giving the play a continuous excitement.



Signature hole – 3rd Hole ‘The Castle’  



The third hole is known as ‘The Castle’ is
considered to be the signature hole of Tralee. It is a par three hole which measures 200
yards from the back tees.



History: 



The Tralee Golf Club was originally established
over a hundred years ago, in 1896. Just a year after, an originally nine hole
course was opened in Fenit, on the South Western part of Barrow Harbour. The
present course itself  was designed by
the famous Arnold Palmer and was open for play in 1984, after moving the
initial 9 holes course  from  near Tralee. This innovation was a great deal
for the Club. In the 20’s the course was redesigned by Captain Lionel Hewson.



Quotes:  



 



Here is what the designer himself thought
about the course:



’I have never come across a piece of land
so ideally suited for the building of a golf course’
– Arnold Palmer
