Monkstown Golf Club is an 18-hole, par 70 golf course located in Parkgarriff, Monkstown, Co. Cork.[1] It was founded in 1908 as a 9-hole course. The course was expanded in 1971 to an 18-hole course.

The course is built around Monkstown Castle which was built in 1636 and served as the clubhouse from 1908 until the 1971 when the building fell into disrepair.

In 2006, a new clubhouse was opened with top-class modern facilities such as cleaning bays and a fully equipped bar and restaurant.[2]
