Monkstown Golf Club

Monkstown Golf Club rejoices in its distinguished history and its unique setting overlooking Cork’s glorious harbour. The original nine holes of the course draw the golfer to the crest of the hill and offer marvellous panoramic views of the broad sweep of the River Lee and Cork’s busy lower harbour.

The grandeur of the site is emphasised by the many stately old trees that help to define the fairways and enrich the sylvan setting while also, of course, offering the keen golfer a reason to proceed with a degree of caution.

The course was extended in 1971 to the back nine (5370 metres in total, Par 70), where several water features provide a nice contrasting challenge, helping to complete a layout that demands subtlety and courage in equal measure.
