This is about as close to pure Irish seaside links golf as it gets. In our group of golfers, Tralee and Old Head were #1 and #2 depending on golfer. Tralee is a bit more natural than Old Head. The back nine is stunning. Several of our caddies when asked for there favorite Irish course indicated Tralee. Once again, a... More

Played here with a friend in the Golf Digest event last Friday on a nice dry fresh October morning. This was my third or fourth time playing here and it never disappoints. Its an Arnold Palmer links on the Kerry peninsula and sticks out into the ocean.There's always a slight breeze blowing and that just adds to the challenge. You... More

Gorgeous back 9, with breathtaking vistas, excellent caddies, and dastardly pin placements. Classic Irish golf, with challenging short par-4's, followed by monstrously long par-4's

This course is spectacular. It is located on a peninsula in southwest Ireland and sticks out into the ocean. There are just gorgeous views of ocean, cliffs, sand and a few castles. Even the view from the driving range is lovely. The course was designed by Arnold Palmer and is a hybrid of American manicured courses and the Irish links.... More

This course is not for the beginner golfer! Challenging, yes but so worth it ...and do yourself a favor, and hire a course guide. Someone who knows the course layout makes the round so much more enjoyable. Finally, the setting is just beautiful...take a few minutes to savor it.

Tralee has been the very good surprise during our trip in Ireland. Unlike Ballybullion, Portmarnock or Old Head, I had no specific expectation before going there, but I left the place completely fascinated! Arnold Palmer did a tremendous job, designing a beautiful front nine and an unforgettable back nine running across high dunes. With many fantastic holes, some challenging, some... More

This must be one of the great golf courses that I have played around the world. The course is quiet dificult especially from hole 11 onwards. Your full concentration is required to score on this links. The views from both the clubhose and the course are breath taking. THe clubhouse menu is very varied wih generally two daily specials. I...
