Finca Cortesin Hotel, Golf & Spa in Spain has reinforced its reputation for setting the benchmark for luxury golf destinations in Europe by carrying out a further upgrade of its Jack Nicklaus Golf Academy.

The exclusive resort in Andalucia has invested in the very latest in swing technology to help members and guests to improve all parts of their game using the same cutting-edge equipment as the world’s elite players.

The upgraded academy at Finca Cortesin boasts a host of new swing analysis technology, including Foresight’s new GCQuad launch monitor

Among the additions at the academy is the installation of Foresight Sports’ GCQuad launch monitor – arguably the most accurate and versatile launch monitor ever made and used by the likes of five-time PGA Tour winner Rickie Fowler and numerous top coaches, including Butch Harmon.

Capable of being used indoors or outside, the GCQuad 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, whether hitting a 300-yard drive, 20-yard chip or 10-foot putt.

Further investment includes the purchase of new Swing Catalyst Video Analysis Software, a Swing Catalyst Balance Plate, two high-speed video cameras and the hi-tech K-Coach Motion Learning System, allowing Finca Cortesin’s team of dedicated golf coaches to analyse swings in greater detail than ever before.

In addition, a Foresight FSX 2018 simulator means that players can now learn and practice at the academy while playing simulations of the world’s best courses, while the new technology will enable the resort to offer an enhanced five-star club-fitting service, featuring 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.”
