Costa del Sol Golf Course Ranked Best in World

Costa del Sol Golf Course Ranked Best in World

The prestigious Finca Cortesín – the home of the Volvo World Match Play Championships of 2009, ’11, and ’12 – has been given the honour of being declared the best golf resort in all of Europe.

Given that Malaga has over 70 golf courses it’s really not much of a surprise that the Costa del Sol – or Costa del Golf if you will – has become the European destination of choice for golfers. The area has seen a wide range of accolades over the years.

Considered as one of the best courses in the World
This time the accolades came in the form of golfing website Leading Courses. The website conducted a poll and the results showed that the Finca Cortesín golf course in Cesares – home of the 2009, 2011, and 2012 Volvo World Match Play Championships – was the best golf course in Europe. The runner up was the Mote Rei Golf and Country Club in Portugal, while the Rockliffe Hall Hotel Golf and Spa resort in County Durham snagged third place for the UK.

There were plenty of other Costa del Sol golf resorts to be found in the Leading Courses Top 100 for 2017, including Villa Padierna (found in the triangle of Estepona, Marbella, and Benahavis) which came in 24th, and the La Cala Resort, which came in 58th.

Spain had the highest number of golf resorts in the top 100 with 17. England came in second with 15 resorts, and Portugal came in third with 13.
