Finca Cortesin Upgrades Jack Nicklaus Golf Academy
The luxury Spanish golf complex, Finca Cortesin Hotel, Golf & Spa has just further enhanced its position as one of the premium golfing locations in Europe by making a series of top-quality investments in its Jack Nicklaus Golf Academy.
The resort, which has often been described as the best golf complex in Andalucia, has invested in a number of cutting-edge technologies, which will allow clients to fine tune their games with the same equipment used by the best pros.
Foresight Sports’ GC Quad Launch Monitor
Chief among these is the complex’s purchase of a Foresight Sports’ GC Quad launch monitor. Foresight Sports’ monitor is one of the best in the world, a reputation which is attested to by the large number of tour players and coaches, including Rickie Fowler and Butch Harmon, who use it to help them practice.
Alongside the GC Quad launch monitor, which uses four cameras to deliver unmatched accuracy and real-time shot analysis on clubhead and ball speed, swing path, lie angle, angle of attack and strike location, the Jack Nicklaus Academy has also received a Foresight FSX 2018 golf simulator.

The golf simulator allows players to enjoy virtual rounds on some of the world’s most prestigious golf courses, tuning their games on the very same tracks that are played by the world’s best players.
Five-Star Club Fitting Service with Honma
The wealth of information this and the launch monitors provide will also improve the resort’s five-star club-fitting service, which is provided in partnership with the premium golf club manufacturers Honma Golf.
Miguel Girbés, director of golf at Finca Cortesin Hotel, Golf & Spa, said: “Finca Cortesin is committed to delivering the best possible golf experience, and it’s imperative that our golfers have access to the latest technology available.
“The significant investment that we’ve made in our tuition facilities over the spring will make our academy one of the very best in Europe, and I’m sure will prove of great benefit to all the golfers that use it.”
As we pointed out in our recent round-up of 5 Must Have Modern Day Golf Gadgets, golf simulators and launch monitors are quickly becoming one of the staples of the serious (and affluent) player’s, coach’s and academy’s golfing armouries.
