Set across a vast 532-acre estate in the rolling hills of southern Spain, between Marbella and Sotogrande, with the Mediterranean to one side and the Casares Mountains to the other, Finca Cortesin’s championship course continues to shine (18th hole pictured above, photo by Steve Carr).
The lovely 7000 meter course opened for play in early 2007, and was designed by Cabell Robinson. The venue has hosted numerous high-profile tournaments, including the Volvo World Match Play Championship in 2009, 2011 and 2012. And is the first golf course in Spain to feature a new, eco-friendly variety of Bermuda grass on all its greens.
Complementing the par-72 layout are practice facilities including Finca Cortesin’s recently-upgraded Jack Nicklaus Golf Academy. The academy features the latest golf-swing technology as well as offering an exclusive club-fitting experience using equipment from some of the game’s top golf club brands , i.g. Honma Golf.
Finca Cortesin’s accommodation facilities include an elegant 67-suite hotel, a 6,000 square meters Beach Club, an award-winning spa featuring Spain’s only snow cave and the choice of four restaurants.
