Finca Cortesin moves into top gear with Club Car with buggy upgrade

06 July 2020

Golfers have the chance to enjoy the ultimate driving experience at Finca Cortesin Hotel, Golf & Spa from this summer after the exclusive resort extended its partnership with Club Car and upgraded its fleet of state-of-the-art golf buggies.

The deluxe resort in Andalusia, southern Spain, has built on its long-standing relationship with the global manufacturer and Riversa – exclusive distributors of Club Car in Spain – by taking delivery of 54 Club Car Tempo buggies. It is the fourth time that Finca Cortesin has upgraded with the two companies since it opened.

Featuring the latest Visage GPS technology, the new Tempo buggies showcase the best that Club Car has to offer and will help Finca Cortesin to improve the luxury customer experience that it provides to its members and guests, allowing direct communication with vehicles, improving the pace of play and maintaining course boundaries.

Vicente Rubio, president of Finca Cortesin Golf Club, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Club Car and Riversa for the fourth time in our history and would like to thank both companies for the outstanding service that they continue to provide to our members and guests.

“Club Car and Riversa share our desire and mantra for offering the very best in quality and excellence, and I’m sure the introduction of the new buggy fleet will help Finca Cortesin to continue to provide an unrivalled golfing experience.

“With the technological improvements that are now available, we will have extra flexibility to monitor and manage our buggy fleet from anywhere on the course, helping us to ensure that golfers get the maximum enjoyment every time they play.”

The investment in the golf buggy fleet is the latest in an array of recent upgrades that Finca Cortesin has made to its golf facilities that have helped to establish it as one of Europe’s most exclusive golf venues.

A three-time host of the Volvo World Match Play Championship – the resort’s 18-hole championship course is the first in Spain to feature a new, eco-friendly variety of Bermuda grass on all its greens after an extensive renovation programme, while its recently-upgraded Jack Nicklaus Golf Academy features the very latest golf-swing technology as well as an exclusive five-star club-fitting experience.

Located across a vast 532-acre estate in the rolling hills of southern Spain between Marbella and Sotogrande, Finca Cortesin has a well-earned reputation as one of Europe’s most exclusive modern golf and lifestyle destination resorts.

The resort’s championship course was designed by world-renowned golf architect Cabell Robinson and Finca Cortesin’s position at the forefront of Spanish and European golf was further enhanced recently after being named as the ‘Best Golf Club in Spain’ at’s 2020 Golfers’ Choice Awards.

Complementing the par-72 layout are outstanding practice facilities while the resort’s other luxury amenities include an elegant 67-suite hotel; a 6,000sqm Beach Club; an award-winning spa featuring Spain’s only snow cave; and the choice of four restaurants.
