The people could not have been nicer to us and we had just a fantastic afternoon and will treasure the great experience.
We played your course on 23 August 2013 with my friends from Holland. We started our journey to play Lahinch followed by Doonbeg. On the 23rd August we started early to play Ballybunion Old and frankly Anthony, we were a bit tired and were even thinking of skipping Tralee as we "had" to play Waterville and Old Head as well. Thank God we didn't and we so very much enjoyed your absolutely fantastic course! Such a thrill and indeed the back nine was designed by God himself. You provided us 2 young lads as caddy and they were so nice and blended in our group perfectly. They were of great help and provided much info regarding Tralee. So your course ended on our No.1 spot, followed by the rest and that was pleasant surprise for us as we would have thought a different top 6.
But the most enjoyable was your hole 19. We felt guests and very welcome. People interacted with us foreigners and were asking if we enjoyed the course etc. Also your youht commission. We saw this group of male and female adults working and helping with your youngsters and the prize giving we witnessed was just warm, sincere and enthusiastic. We have travelled over the whole world Anthony and played many courses. Some are really nice, high end but have cold atmosphere. Some are OK but have a 'party clubhouse'. You have a fantastic golf course (which I will definitely try and come back to play!), fantastic members and great young players and a very welcoming clubhouse. The people could not have been nicer to us and we had just a fantastic afternoon and will treasure the great experience.
Thank you Anthony!

I found the gateway to heaven on your golf course
I returned to the USA from Ireland a couple of weeks ago and several of my friends have asked me to describe Tralee; I can not since no words have been developed to describe such beauty . My group played 8 courses there during our visit, with Tralee being the last I have played courses all over the US and several in Canada, but I have never seen such a beautiful golf course. Honestly, you should warn golfers about the beauty of your golf courses before they arrive to play. I had my highest score there of the entire trip, but it mattered not since I was certain that I had found the gateway to heaven on your golf course. Thank you for a wonderful, unforgettable experience.

The Course at the Tralee Golf Club in Ireland is the most beautiful golf course i've ever played... the sea and the light and the sky and the hills and the fields.... it's just the prettiest one.

Every hole had spectacular panoramas
"I will start by telling you that my wife is a Jehovah witness and this weekend she was in Punchestown for their annual convention. Their teachings are that when they depart this earth that they will live in paradise for eternity. I had cause to ring her on Saturday night and tell her I had beat her to it while I was still alive. I played in the intermediate scratch cup on Saturday and it was a truly magnificent experience. Every hole had spectacular panoramas and it was such a pleasure standing on every tee box. Never mind that as a combined group we left 24 golf balls for members to pickup. We could only marvel as we watched that they could go immediately to the thick rough and find it while we managed to find just one ball that strayed off a true line. Having played there around 15 years ago it is only on Saturday I understood the true majesty of the course. Having convinced my 2 playing partners we should make the trip from Cork it was rewarding to hear them raving about it just as much. As a Scotsman living in Ireland for the last 30 years I could always boast we had the best golf courses. I stand corrected. If you would discount us the cost of the 24 balls we would only be too delighted to return there sooner rather than later. In the meantime we will bore anyone who will listen about the time the mighty Tralee tamed us.
