Finca Cortesin and the 2023 Solheim Cup: a golf championship venue like no other

Finca Cortesin, nestled in the charming town of Casares on the Andalusian coast, stands as a unique gem in Tee Times Golf Agency‘s Spanish collection. Spanning 215 hectares, this opulent golf resort is divided into six grand areas: an internationally acclaimed hotel, an exceptional residential offering, a championship golf course, an extraordinary spa and sports area, a stunning beach club, and an exclusive shopping gallery.

The resort’s exceptional site allows easy access to Marbella, the capital of Costa del Sol, and Puerto Banús and Sotogrande, two of the Mediterranean’s most significant marinas, for unforgettable Spain golf holidays. The Malaga International Airport is just a 50-minute drive away, and Gibraltar’s airport is even closer, at a 15-minute drive.

Finca Cortesin Golf Course: a renowned design

Finca Cortesin’s golf course, designed by Cabell Robinson, is world-renowned, having hosted the Volvo World Match Play Championship three times (2009, 2011, and 2012) and, most recently, the Solheim Cup in 2023. This event marked Spain’s first time hosting the prestigious tournament, held from September 18 to 24, 2023. The competition saw Europe’s top female golfers face off against the United States, culminating in a historic tie, the first in the Solheim Cup’s history. The European team retained the cup thanks to Carlota Ciganda’s decisive putt on the 17th hole.

Golf Digest ranked Finca Cortesin among the best golf courses in Spain. The 18-hole course harmoniously integrates the natural Mediterranean landscape, offering an aesthetically stunning and challenging golf experience. The meticulously maintained fairways and greens and the perfect climate provide an ideal setting for year-round golf.

The resort’s hotel, ranked among the world’s top 50, ensures unparalleled luxury. Upon arrival, security guides guests to the appropriate parking area, where service assistants take care of their golf equipment, providing a seamless and opulent experience.

Finca Cortesin and sustainability

Finca Cortesin’s dedication to sustainability is unwavering, earning the prestigious GEO Certified® seal in July 2023. The resort’s golf course sets a benchmark, using 100% reclaimed water from nearby Manilva, surpassing the 50% requirement set by ACOSOL for efficient water use. Advanced water management techniques and weather monitoring systems ensure optimal water usage year-round, reflecting our deep-rooted commitment to the environment.

Solheim Cup has many positive effects in Spain’s economy

Arturo Bernal, the Minister of Tourism, Culture, and Sports for the Junta de Andalucia, went to Finca Cortesin, in the Costa del Sol, to see for himself how the Solheim Cup 2023 is being prepared.

82.000 tickets have already been sold for the event, which takes place from September 18th to 24th, and the organisers expect a full house. Bernal said, “We’re going to see a show that will stay with us forever, and its effects are already being felt on every level”.

Some changes have been made to the course’s path so that it can meet the needs of the Solheim Cup. The new hole 1 makes it possible to build a platform that can hold 3,000 people. This will let fans get very close to the golfers.

The counsellor thinks that the Solheim Cup will bring in 200 million euros from the media. “We also think that the direct and secondary effects will add up to about 300 million euros. We’re talking about a global impact of about 500 million euros, with an event that will not only make Andalusia and Malaga a place of reference but also create a new icon of golf courses around the world”, he said, referring to Finca Cortesin.

Bernal also wanted to point out that the drought was especially hard on the Junta de Andalucia and the golf industry. In this way, he said, “80% of the golf clubs in Andalusia use recycled water to water their greens. And the rest that can’t, are watering their plants with non-potable water.

Finca Cortesin, host of the 2023 Solheim Cup, has appointed Spanish professional and Ladies European Tour (LET) player Ana Peláez as its new ambassador to mark the approaching six-month countdown to the tournament.

The LET star further solidifies Finca Cortesin’s reputation as one of the top quality and lifestyle destinations in the world, while also demonstrating the resort’s dedication to supporting women’s sports.

A native of the Costa del Sol, Ana Peláez has stood out last year for her technical ability and her precision in the game, after having achieved victory at the Madrid Ladies Open in May 2022.

The 25-year-old Spaniard has high hopes of making Suzann Pettersen’s European team in September and is widely regarded as one of the country’s promising young players.

“It is an incredible opportunity to represent Finca Cortesin and have their unconditional support as I play week after week on the Ladies European Tour. Playing and training in the Solheim Cup 2023 venue is amazing and will boost my career”, said Peláez.

“The resort has a great track record of supporting local women and girls in the industry by providing them with the necessary conditions to succeed”, concluded.

“Finca Cortesin is delighted to welcome Ana Peláez as an ambassador. Having Ana as an ambassador for the resort will help us to consolidate our position as the venue for the Solheim Cup but also contributes to promoting golf among the new generation of Spanish golfers”, said Vicente Rubio, general director and president of Finca Cortesin.

“The resort is eager to collaborate with Ana to highlight the significance of Spain’s first-ever hosting of the Solheim Cup. We are dedicated to giving you all you need to fight for a place on the European squad in September of this year as the event’s host”, Rubio continued.
