Spain’s Finca Cortesin Hosts the PGA European Tour’s Volvo Match Play Championship

October 9, 2009 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Finca CortesinWhen it opened last fall on Spain's Costa del Sol, Finca Cortesin made waves for landing a spot on Conde Nast Traveler's Hot List of new hotels. Designed with Moorish and Andalucian architectural influences, Finca Cortesin is "a stunner," to quote The Independent (UK), filled with mosaics and porticos, not to mention the views "across to the sea in one direction and to the mountains in the other." In fact, most of the 67 rooms have private terraces to take in the views of the Mediterranean. Oversized Italian marble bathrooms have walk-in showers and separate soaking tubs. Spanning 2,200 square meters, the spa has a chemical-free pool, thermal suites, and snow cabin. From October 29-November 1, the Finca Cortesin's golf course-- the longest in Europe-- will host the PGA European Tour's Volvo Match Play Championship. Note that the Cabell Robinson-designed course has a Jack Nicklaus Golf Academy.
