Leading Courses, a reviewing website used by hundreds and thousands of golfers, has placed the Casares golf resort, Finca Cortesín, at the top of its European rankings this year.

The golf resort has been promoted from third to first place after achieving an average rating of 9.3 out of 10. The rating is based on golfers’ opinions of the resort’s facilities, course maintenance, clubhouse appearance and atmosphere, value for money and hospitality.

Miguel Girbes, Finca Cortesín’s new director has stated that this recognition is important for the resort’s staff because it demonstrates that their work is appreciated by customers.

Girbes also points out that Finca Cortesín has scored so highly perhaps because golfers are guaranteed more space than at other resorts, as in the last year they only had around 15,000 rounds take place there.

“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.

Moreover, many golfers are attracted to the resort not only for its picturesque location, but also because televised golfing competitions, Volvo World and Match Play, have taken place there for the last three years.

Finca Cortesín hopes to repeat its success in 2017 as tourism and the demand for golf courses increases each year. source surinenglish
