Finca Cortesin Golf on the Costa Del Sol Golf, Spain

By: Richard Allard



Finca CortesÃ?n Golf on the Costa del Sol Golf, Spain opened to the public in October 2006.



It is located in the district of Casares, approx. halfway between Marbella and Sotogrande on the Costa del Sol, and it's privileged location offers views over the Mediterranean and the African coastline from every angle of the golf course.



The golf course itself was designed by Cabell Robinson. Unlike most of the existing courses in the Costa del Sol Golf area, houses do not interfere with the game. This also means that there is a lot of room for the holes which are not cramped by buildings, so the player can enjoy his golf in a natural environment.



The length of the course reaches nearly 7 km from the back tees, becoming one of the longest courses in Europe, with a total par of 72. There are five par 3's, eight par 4's & five par 5's.



The main features are the length of the fairways and the great variety of its natural vegetation which includes olive trees and corks.

The 18 holes are very unique since every hole is completely different to the others which makes playing very enjoyable.?

Technically speaking, it is important to emphasize the following features -




  • The Bermuda 419 Grass fairways are very wide (up to 50 mts.)



  • The bunkers are beautifully shaped and filled with white marble sand.



  • Tee boxes are very high quality (every hole has several tee platforms so the player always finds them in perfect shape).






Without doubt, the greens are one of Finca CortesÃ?n Golf's jewels, they all have slight brakes and have the quality to be extremely fast.



Finca Cortesin also includes the Jack Nicklaus golf academy. This learning method has been personally developed by Jack Nicklaus, an enjoyable and personalized method of teaching, based on matching the swing with the player.



The Club House and the remaining sport facilities and services all have an excellent level of quality.
