Changes to Ireland’s Ballybunion Golf Club and Tralee Golf Club

Premier Irish Golf Tours Announces Changes to Ballybunion Golf Club and Tralee Golf Club, Two of the Top 100 Golf Courses in the World

Tralee, Co. Kerry, Ireland, June 8. 2015 … Premier Irish Golf Tours, the #1 ranked golf tour operator in Ireland, invites golfers to book a Southwest Golf Tour to experience the changes made to Ballybunion Golf Club and Tralee Golf Club, two of the top 100 courses in the world.

“Both of these courses are absolutely majestic and we are pleased to offer them as part of our Southwest Golf Tour,” said David McMahon, Managing Director, Premier Irish Golf Tours. “They have both made changes to their courses to improve their already challenging designs and we invite golfers to come out and play them as part of their Irish golf vacation.”

Tralee Golf Club is Arnold Palmer’s first European golf course design and it is said “That Arnold Palmer created the front nine but that God created the back nine.” The Arnold Palmer group was instrumental in changing the existing par 5 9th hole into a new spectacular dogleg par 5 with huge fairway bunkers. The new hole is still reachable in two for the long hitters once they can safely navigate their ball onto the short grass. Any errant tee shots will be extremely punished.

Ballybunion Golf Club is considered by many to be the finest golf links in the world and that is certainly the sentiment of five time British Open winner, Tom Watson. Ballybunion has made subtle changes by strategically planting new maram grass and extra mounding behind the fifth green which enhances an already amazing golf links.
