Where2Golf says: 

Club de Golf Finca Cortesin: The rolling landscape of Finca El Cortesin ("the farm estate of Cortesin") now boasts one of the Costa del Sol's best new courses. This excellent Cabell Robinson design fits well with its natural surroundings and is beginning to establish an excellent reputation for itself. The layout, which stretches to 7500 yards from the back tees, enjoys a wonderful location with beautiful views of the Mediterranean Sea, the African coastline and the local Estepona mountains. The undulations of the surrounding rugged hills are reflected in many slopes and contours found on Finca Cortesin's fairways and expansive greens. On this testing and open layout, which is free of housing development (unlike many other Costa del Sol courses), you'll find a variety of natural vegetation lining the generously wide and well-bunkered holes. When the wind gets up you'll be glad of the good-width fairways and relative openess from the tee. Two ponds and several fairway-crossing water ditches need to be factored into your game plan on a course that includes five par 3's and five par 5's. The signature par-4 13th is rated one of the best holes on the Costa del Sol. Often fiercely protected by an array of stylish, white-sand bunkering, the expansive putting surfaces contain many subtle slopes and borrows, complemented by more obvious and equally testing undulations.
