The front 9 of Finca Cortesin Golf Course

Hole 1: Tee shot is best to the middle of the wide fairway which does have bunkers on the left and right. The green is quite large, protected on the left by a bunker and on the right by a slope.

Hole 2: 175 meter par 3 with a well protected green which has many contours to its surface. This is a tricky par 3.

Hole 3: A beautiful par 5 which for a long hitter can be reached in two. The tee shot to a wide fairway should be to the left if you want to play your second shot over the lake to the green. Or you play your second shot up the left side away from the lake. There are no bunkers around this green and the views are fantastic.

Hole 4: 256 meters to the green but a huge lake to play over. Take less club and play up the fairway to the right avoiding the one fairway bunker and then onto the green. The green has the water to the left and a bunker to the right.

Hole 5: A straight par 5 with the fairway becoming tighter as you approach the green. The green is narrow and well protected by some great bunkers making reaching in two very tricky.

Hole 6: 178 meters par 3 with deep bunkers protecting a large green.

Hole 7: It is a long hole and a difficult par 4. Again the fairway is generous with bunkers left and right. The second shot will be a long iron or wood to a large sloping green with bunkers front right and right.

Hole 8: A dog leg to the right and a par 5. There are bunkers all up the right side before the turn. Select your second shot carefully as the approach to the green has bunkers left and right making the fairway narrow. It is a large green with one bunker and a lot of rough.

Hole 9: A short par 4 with a generous fairway with bunkers down the left and one in the middle. The green is small and a good second shot is needed to avoid any trick chips.
