Spain’s Finca Cortesin is True Class

Spain’s Finca Cortesin is True Class

Finca Cortesin belongs amongst Spain’s elite golf courses. Located in the rolling hills of southern Spain, between Marbella and Sotogrande, it offers views over the Mediterranean to one side and the tranquil Casares Mountains to the other.

 

THE STORY BEHIND FINCA CORTESIN

Designed by American Cabell Robinson, Finca Cortesin has hosted numerous high-profile tournaments, including the Volvo World Match Play Championship in 2009, 2011 and 2012.  A state-of-the-art Jack Nicklaus Golf Academy complements the world-class golf course.

Cabell Robinson’s vision was to produce a golf course where “no hole was less than championship quality”. Some would say he has delivered on that vision, with the course ranking in the top 5 in Spain by Golf World Magazine and top100golfcourses.com.

Finca Cortesin is part of an award winning 5-star luxury Hotel Resort & Spa. Renowned for its attention to detail, the resort has become the first golf course in Spain to feature a new, environmentally-friendly type of Bermuda grass on all its putting surfaces.

 

THE COURSE

The Finca Cortesin course is challenging but forgiving. It is an experience you will never forget. With a choice of 5 different tee positions, the course will appeal to golfers of all levels; 5,884 metres for men and 4,840 metres for ladies. There is even an “executive gold tee” with 5.215 metres that makes the course enjoyable for the higher handicaps and seniors.

The greens are very fast and silky smooth; Sergio Garcia has even drawn parallels between the quality of the greens at Finca Cortesin and the Augusta National.

 

THE SIGNATURE HOLE

Hole 13 is a spectacular par-four.  Players drive to a wide fairway. On the left, a water hazard runs left of the fairway and across the front of the green. Bunkers right and left complete what is one of Spain’s most beautiful approach shots. This is a lovely, picturesque hole surrounded by traditional old Acebuches (typical local trees). The green is large and sloping, allowing for several different pin positions.
