Tralee Golf Club has the distinction of being Arnold Palmer's first European course design. Located on Ireland's southwestern coast, there are beautiful ocean views from every hole on the golf course. Palmer immediately recognized the landscape's enormous potential, saying that he has "never come across a piece of land so ideally suited for the building of a golf course." The layout features undulating fairways lined with treacherous rough and hard greens covered in fescue. Palmer used a heavier hand designing the front nine but the more challenging back nine was truly sculpted from nature. Tralee's homeward stretch includes what is arguably the most difficult hole on the course. The 12th hole is a long downhill par-4 that features heavy rough on the right and a wall to the left, demanding accuracy off of the tees.
