“Great 9 Hole Course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

Unable to get into Ballybunion golf course, we found the Ballyheigue Castle Golf Club on a recommendation from a local. The course was beautiful, challenging, well maintained, and affordable. We were able to book a tee time a day in advance (on a Sat morning!), and the woman that runs the course made us feel at home. Greeting us as she opened the pro shop, she invited us to have some coffee with her and told us about the course. It was more like visiting an old friend than buying a round. I am sure there are courses that are more lovely than this one, but if you are looking for a spontaneous round while visiting Tralee, this was a great experience. Also, they rented us clubs for an embarrassingly low rate.

Ballyheigue is about 10 miles north ofTralee. Please relocate marker to the village at the north of trade bay. The castle is of little interest and not really a tourist attraction, however it is visually attractive from a distance.
