Finca Cortesin. Golf aficionados may find the golf club’s name familiar as it hosted the then-European Tour’s Volvo Masters from 2009 to 2012, but to many it may not ring a bell. Not yet…

The Andalucían resort is set to become a household name as it prepares for a landmark year in 2023. In September it will become the first Spanish venue to host the Solheim Cup, when Suzann Pettersen’s Team Europe will be going for three in a row against the finest female golfers from America in the famous matchplay tournament. In the lead up to the event, Finca Cortesin has teamed up with Troon, the leader in club management, development, and marketing, to help with the growing popularity and inevitable demand that will arrive this year.

Mark Chapleski, Executive Vice President at Troon International, said: “Through our collaboration, we will be able to assist the Finca team to further enhance their positioning in international markets and grow their truly amazing brand.”

Set on a 215-hectare estate and surrounded by undisturbed nature, Finca Cortesin’s championship course is the central focus of an estate that features an award-winning hotel, spa and sport facilities, luxury residential complexes and extensive retail and dining outlets on the shores of the Mediterranean.

The Solheim Cup will take place between 18-24 September.
