Designer: Arnold Palmer (1984)

“I have never come across a piece of land so ideally suited for the building of a golf course," said Arnold Palmer, designer of Tralee Golf Club. Opened in 1984, it’s a rugged and exhilarating creation.
Palmer has designed a course that will stimulate the senses every bit as much as the breathtaking scenery. According to folklore, Palmer created the first nine and Mother Nature did the rest. The front nine at Tralee Golf Club plays across fairly level links land, but the majority of the holes hug the coastline and the ground is elevated, affording magnificent views from the cliff top across Tralee Bay to the Atlantic Ocean beyond. The back nine plays through mountainous dunes with fearsome carries across ravines to plateau greens.
