Tralee Golf Club

Tralee, Ireland

 Dramatic dunes meet the sea on a spectacular back nine


Read any amount of golf course marketing material and surely you’ll see repeated quotes from architects saying the land was the finest they’d ever seen for golf. It’s a tradition that goes all the way back to Old Tom Morris and most of the time it’s just fluff. But then, every once in awhile, it’s true. Tralee proudly and prominently touts architect Arnold Palmer’s quip that he designed the front nine but surely God designed the back nine. Don’t dismiss it; the man knew what he was talking about. This is as spectacular a course that exists, and while not perfect, it’s undoubtedly one of the finest modern links in existence. And on that wonderful back nine, you may find yourself nodding in agreement with The King.
