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 marvelous panoramic views of the broad sweep of the River Lee and Cork's busy lower harbour.

The grandeur of the site is empahasised 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 and the back nine, where several water features provide a nice contrasting challenge, help to complete a layout that demands subtlety and courage in equal measure.

It offers golfers of all levels a challenge that is stimulating and interesting and one that demands the use of every club in the bag. Monkstown Golf Club is conveniently situated just ten minutes drive from both Cork Airport and Cork's city-centre.

The old garrison town of Cobh, formerly Queenstown, with its colourful past is also but a short drive away and is reached via a river-ferry crossing. Just as adjacent to the south-west is the distinctive town of Kinsale, the gourmet capital of Ireland with its generous quota of distinguished restaurants, its quaint narrow streets and many hints of its military and Spanish connections.
