Club History

In 1969, Tralee Pitch & Putt Club started life in a different location to where it is today. Originally the club was situated where the old John Mitchell’s football grounds were located near Boherbue, where Aldi and Corrib Oil can now be found. In the 1970s, members of the club secured the land around Killeen Woods from the Town Council after raising money to fund its purchase. The members set about building the course with very little machinery, building the club’s signature raised greens by hand.

In 1985, Tralee Pitch and Putt hosted the National Strokeplay Championship and hosted the competition again in 2009, with the competition being won by Bryan Delaney. In 1988 and 1995, the club played host to the National Inter County Championship. With the Irish Open on in Deerpark in 2011, Tralee hosted the International Challenge game between Ireland & Catalonia, the first international competition to take place in the club, with Ireland emerging victorious.

2011 saw the club host the Munster Strokeplay Championship, with club member Jonathon Goodall chipping in on the last hole to win the competition. Tralee was also the co-host for the 2013 National Scramble Competition and hosted the Munster Mixed Foursomes in 2015.
