Finca Cortesin has previously hosted numerous high-profile tournaments including the Volvo Match Play Championship on three separate occassions in 2009, 2011 and 2012. It will once again be thrust into the spotlight when it hosts the upcoming edition of the Solheim Cup next year. The prestigious event will be held from 18th – 24th September 2023 and will be the first time the match between Europe and the United States will be staged in Spain.
Located in one of the most sought-after enclaves of the Andalusian coast, Finca Cortesin is often considered one of the best golf resorts in Europe. Situated on a 215-hectare estate in the heights of Casares, it is one of the most tranquil settings – a place where a traditional Mediterranean lifestyle seamlessly embeds into contemporary living, with an unrivalled ambience of peace and beauty.
The resort has a privileged location with Malaga, the capital of the Costa del Sol, as well as two of the most important marinas on the Mediterranean coast, Puerto Banús and Sotogrande, only a short drive away. It is one of the most accessible regions in Europe with the International airport in Malaga only one hour away, whilst Gibraltar can be reached in 35 minutes.
Guests are often drawn to the resort by its world-class hospitality, spectacular setting and impeccable service, with state-of-the-art facilities including an award-winning hotel, exceptional Real Estate, championship golf course, outstanding Spa, magnificent Beach Club and exclusive shopping area. Those that arrive at Finca Cortesin will always encounter calm, privacy and pure air.
Finca Cortesin’s magnificent 18-hole championship golf course is ranked amongst the finest in Spain. Designed by world leading golf course architect, Cabell Robinson, the Course is highly-rated for its commitment to the environment; incorporating the area’s natural flora and fauna into its layout.
Sustainability is also a vital part of everyday life at Finca Cortesin. Considered to be one of the most environmentally-friendly golfing destinations in Europe, the resort recently became the first golf course in Spain to receive ACOSOL’s seal of quality for recycled water. The Course uses 100% regenerated water from the nearby village of Manilva to maintain its high standards, whilst in 2017 all of the greens were converted to a Bermuda warm season grass; the first venue in Spain to do so; helping to decrease water consumption by 30%.
Designed in the style of a classic Andalusian ‘finca’, the resort’s award-winning hotel compliments life exquisitely away from the fairways. Offering 67 unique suites, ranging from an impressive 50m² to 180m² in size, the hotel showcases a bright and luxuriously spacious feeling that is otherwise so rare in Europe. It also includes 23,000 sqm of manicured gardens, an impressive Spa; featuring thermal baths, a fitness centre, and a range of exclusive Thai treatments; four swimming pools, as well as tennis and padel courts.
There are also three main restaurants for guests to choose from: the hotel’s signature dining facility, REI, renowned for both exquisite traditional Asian dishes and Asian-Mediterranean fusion, El Jardin de Lutz for authentic Spanish cuisine, and Don Giovanni for award-winning Italian dishes.
Visitors also have the possibility of experiencing a permanent side of paradise with a one-of-a-kind exclusive collection of exceptional, individually designed villas; showcasing unsurpassed views and modern Mediterranean style interiors.
