It was fantastic news for Spain, the Costa del Sol and Finca Cortesin this March when the biggest golf course comparison site, Leading Courses, named Finca Cortesin as the top golf course in Europe. Golfers who play on European courses voted to place the Casares golf resort in the top spot, making the prize an even greater accolade.
Finca Cortesin was already at the number three spot, but managed to move into first place after receiving an average rating of 9.3 out of 10. These ratings are based on golfers’ opinions of facilities at the resort, the level of course maintenance, the appearance of the clubhouse and its atmosphere and hospitality, and its overall value for money.
As you can imagine, Finca Cortesin’s new director, Miguel Girbes, was delighted by the news and said that it was not just important for the resort but also for the staff, because it recognises that the effort they put in is highly valued by the customers. He also believes that the course scored so highly because “golfers are guaranteed more space than at any other resort, as in the last year we only had about 15,000 rounds take place here.” He also added: “We host a smaller amount of players at a higher cost, but we provide a service to justify the price.” Clearly, Finca Cortesin could accumulate many more customers if it reduced the green fees, but that is not what it is about and it is clear that Europe’s golfers value quality over quantity. As does Finca Cortesin!
Of course, Finca Cortesin also attracts many golfers to its stunningly scenic location because a number of top golf competitions are televised from the Casares resort, including Volvo World and Match Play that have been held here for the last three years.
Terrazas de Cortesin is the perfect choice for those who are considering relocating to a frontline golf position on the Costa del Sol. The exclusive development of luxury apartments and penthouses offers a tranquil setting with stunning panoramic sea and golf views to the famous Finca Cortesin course. Set in a secure urbanisation that is located just a short distance from the beach and amenities, a property at Terrazas de Cortesin is ideal for a family, retirement or holiday home.
Naturally, Miguel Girbes and the team at Finca Cortesin hope to repeat its success in 2017, which it looks likely to do thanks to the continued demand for top quality golfing on the Costa del Sol.
