Break from golf today. Enjoy the beach at Finca Cortesin Resort. Take a day trip to Granada or Marbella. Enjoy the abundant sunshine in southern Spain.
Play Sotogrande which opened on the Costa de Sol in 1964, it is maintained in immaculate condition and has long been considered one of the top courses in Europe. Sotogrande was the first course Trent Jones designed in Europe and is blessed with his design philosophy, which consists of building courses perfectly integrated with the natural surroundings which are a great challenge to the better players, but accessible and enjoyable for everyone.
Play Valderrama, the famous Valderrama course on the Costa del Sol hosted the 1997 Ryder Cup matches. It is a course which invariably is in excellent condition throughout the season. Valderrama has been ranked as high as #1 in Continental Europe. It demands precision from the tee to find the narrow fairways nestled between cork trees.
Play Finca Cortesin for a second time located at the resort. Instead of golf on this day choose to use this day to explore the region. Plan a daytrip to Gibralter, located 90 min away, Marbella about 30 min away or Malaga 60 minutes away. Malaga is definitely the choice over Marbella. Malaga has a very authentic Spanish feel, nice beach front promenade, exquisite cathedral, and charming and old town.
You can also choose Gibralter with over a thousand years of Moorish, Spanish and British history. The Rock of Gibraltar dominates the entrance to the Mediterranean between the southern tip of Spain and the continent of Africa. The journey time from Marbella to Gibraltar is about 90 mins though varied and interesting terrain.
Play La Reserva La Reserva is the newest addition to the courses of Sotogrande. Designed by Cabell Robinson and opened in the autumn of 2003 to outstanding reviews. The course lies within the Sotogrande complex to the north of Valderrama. The club is situated in a spectacular spot featuring marvellous views of both the mountains and sea.
