Leading Courses, a major golf course comparison site, has crowned Finca Cortesín the best golf course in Europe, further situating the Costa del Sol as one of the hottest golf destinations in the world.
Located in Casares, Finca Cortesín climbed from third to first place this year after achieving an average rating of 9.3 out of 10. The rating is based on golfer's opinion of the resorts facilities, course maintenance, clubhouse appearance and atmosphere, value for money and hospitality.
Miguel Girbes, Finca Cortesín's new director cited their ability to offer clients more space than other resorts as the reason they continue to score so highly, with only 15,000 rounds a year on average.
"We host a smaller number of players at a higher cost, but we provide a service to justify the price. If we offered rounds for 50 euros each we could possibly have had 40,000 rounds this year," said Girbes.
