The course is dominated by a towering wood that runs like a spine through its middle. The exciting, opening downhill par four exposes the major feature of the course, the splendid Silver River Feale. Three holes run along this beautiful but menacing river before two run parallel to them under the shadow of the wood. This is the southern side of the course. The finishing three holes are on the northern side of the wood. It is a challenging layout intended to test the course management and shot-making ability of even the best players.

Castles, distant islands, towering mountains and the beach that figured prominently in the film Ryan’s Daughter will captivate you. Tralee has a fully qualified resident professional, fully stocked pro shop, and a spacious and comfortable restaurant and bar. It has earned a reputation for having a most friendly and relaxed atmosphere among members and guests alike. As all the caddies are also members, it is not uncommon to find a caddie and guest sharing a pint and a couple of laughs in the comfort of the upstairs lounge after a round.
