Finca Cortesin Golf Club
Carretera de Casares, s/n, 29690 Casares - Málaga, Spain
18-hole championship golf course
Designed by World famous golf course architect Mr. Cabell Robinson who worked many years for the Robert Trent Jones Group; The 18-hole Finca Cortesín layout is simply spectacular. The main features are the length of the course (6,808 m) and the great variety of its natural vegetation which includes olive trees and corks.
Technically speaking, it is important to emphasize the following features: the Bermuda 419 Grass fairways are very wide (up to 50 m), the bunkers are beautifully shaped and filled with white silica 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 Cortesin’s jewels, they all have slight brakes and have the quality of being extremely fast.
Located next to the club house has two levels for training: one with natural grass (Bermuda 419) and the other with artificial grass mats (20 bays). The range has four greens situated at different distances to practice all kinds of shots. The orientation of the practice area is south-west to avoid hitting into the sun at any time of the day.
