Tralee is just a gem. Having played here several times in the past 20 years, I find it just keeps getting better. Kudos to the club for the changes to the 6th hole. The increased revetting of the fairway bunkers, especially on 9 and 18. Many write about the magnificent back nine but the front has improved very nicely and the new practice grounds are great. This is a course which plays well for everyone. Predominantly, You should find your ball, except when you know you shouldn’t. It starts with a good hole that isn’t claustrophobic in feeling. 2 is as grand a par 5 as anywhere and 3 is also a great par 3. The signature hole 12 is as dyabolical a par 4 as anywhere and 13 is just tantalizing par 3….15/16/17 are the backbone of the Tralee pedigree. Just a great course and a must play if in SW Ireland.
