Q&A with Finca Cortesin Touring Professional Noemi Jimenez

You have recently signed a new sponsorship agreement with Finca Cortesin. How important is it for your career to have the support of the resort and what does the sponsorship enable you to do?

Finca Cortesin has supported me ever since I turned professional in 2015 and I am extremely grateful and honoured to represent such an amazing place, not only golf and hotel wise, but also what the resort represents and the high level of customer service that they provide. I always recommend the resort to the people I play with on the Ladies European Tour and in any pro-am or event that I play. It means a lot to me and my brand to be linked with such an outstanding golf club, and even more so now as the host for the 2023 Solheim Cup.  The sponsorship, apart from elevating my brand, also enables me to travel to tournaments and not to have to worry about the financial side of my career. I feel like they are a family of mine already. 

Can I take you back to the time when you first visited Finca Cortesin and played the golf course? What were your first impressions?

Yes, it was some months before I first signed with them, and I was so excited to play there, because they are such a prestigious golf course and resort, and I knew I was going to have a great time. And I certainly did. 

Life has changed for all of us over the last 12 months because of Covid 19. How have things changed for you as a professional golfer and what do you think life will be like on the Ladies European Tour when it resumes?

It has changed a lot for everybody and really it is quite difficult for us now because we have to be constantly in bubbles when we go to tournaments, and doing PCR tests. We can’t visit the cities that we’re playing in, so it is challenging mentally when you’ve been on the road a few weeks. But we have to be grateful just to have tournaments because we live for that and, honestly, I have to thank my sponsors, and especially Finca Cortesin, because they are a huge help during the time when you’re not competing. We need to live from something, and sponsors like them mean a lot. 

Finca Cortesin will become the first course in Spain to host the Solheim Cup in 2023. What was your reaction when you first heard the news and what will staging such a prestigious event do for golf in the region?

I had no idea that this was happening because Vicente and James didn’t mention anything to me, so it was really a surprise when the announcement was made. However, I knew something like this was going to happen sooner or later because Finca Cortesin represents so many values that tournaments like the Solheim Cup have. I am very happy that Finca Cortesin is the first golf venue in Spain to host such a great event because of the huge love and respect I have for the resort. It really deserves it. Golf is going to grow a lot in this area thanks to this because it is really an amazing event in an amazing venue, and I can’t wait for it to happen.

Hosting the Solheim Cup is part of Finca Cortesin’s long-term commitment to promoting women’s golf. How important is to have one of Europe’s top resorts leading the drive to raise the profile of ladies’ golf and attracting new players into the game? 

It is very important; things like this are what we need to promote women’s golf. This is like a dream come true, and Finca Cortesin has shown me how much they support women’s golf and professionals like myself, so I only have kind words for them. This is going to help the golf game itself so much and especially women’s sports. 

NEW DEALS HIGHLIGHT FINCA CORTESIN COMMITMENT TO WOMEN’S GOLF

Finca Cortesin Hotel, Golf & Spa, host venue of the 2023 Solheim Cup, has further enhanced its position at the forefront of women’s golf in Spain and Europe by finalising new 12-month sponsorship agreements with Ladies European Tour stars Noemi Jiménez and Laura Gómez.

The exclusive resort in Andalusia has extended its long-term partnership with Jiménez, 27, for a sixth year while entering into a new relationship with Gómez, 24, one of the rising talents of the ladies’ game in Spain.

Finca Cortesin – which will become the first venue in Spain to host the Solheim Cup, the biggest team competition in women’s golf – is committed to growing the ladies’ game both on a national and international level.

In addition to representing the resort worldwide, Jiménez and 2019 LET Access Tour Rookie of the Year Gómez – who were both born in Marbella – will also be at the forefront of the venue’s drive to promote women’s golf across the Andalusia region, including hosting a clinic for players of all abilities at Finca Cortesin on Global Women’s Golf Day 2021 at the start of June.

Jiménez said: “It’s a tremendous privilege for me to represent one of the best golf resorts in the world. Finca Cortesin shares my passion for increasing the popularity of women’s golf and raising its worldwide profile, and no one was happier than me when they were awarded the 2023 Solheim Cup.”

Gómez said: “To receive the backing of a resort as prestigious as Finca Cortesin is a great personal honour for me and will be a major help in achieving my ambition of becoming an established member on the Ladies European Tour.”

Vicente Rubio, president of Finca Cortesin Golf Club, said: “We’re delighted to be supporting two of the leading talents in Spanish women’s golf. Noemi and Laura are a key part in our plans to introduce golf to a new audience of female players, which includes supporting local tour professionals and amateur clinics as well as high-profile events of the stature of the Solheim Cup.”

Spain will become the sixth different European nation to stage the biggest team competition in women’s golf when the Solheim Cup heads to Andalusia in two years’ time, with the biennial contest between Europe and the United States set to take place from September 18-24, 2023.

FINCA CORTESIN PROMISES UNFORGETTABLE SOLHEIM CUP EXPERIENCE

Finca Cortesin is celebrating the prestigious honour of being chosen to host the 2023 Solheim Cup – the first time that Spain has staged the match between Europe and the United States.

Spain will become the sixth different European nation to stage the biggest team competition in women’s golf when the event heads to Andalusia in 2023, with the exact dates to be confirmed.

Regarded as one of the best courses in Spain and among the premier resorts in Europe, Finca Cortesin has a proven track record for hosting high-profile tournaments including the Volvo World Match Play Championship in 2009, 2011 and 2012, with the star-studded line-up including Rory McIlroy, Lee Westwood, Martin Kaymer, Sergio Garcia and Luke Donald.

Vicente Rubio, president of Finca Cortesin Golf Club, said: “Hosting an event of this magnitude and worldwide importance is a tremendous honour and one that makes us all feel very proud and privileged.

“With the layout that Cabell Robinson has created and different challenges that it presents, the course lends itself perfectly to an event of this nature. With the work that has taken place over the last few years, it has never looked in better condition and every player is guaranteed an experience that they will never forget.”

Spain has staged 75 events on the Ladies European Tour and its development tour, while the region of Andalusia had the honour of hosting the 1997 Ryder Cup at Valderrama.

Ladies European Tour chief executive Alexandra Armas added: “Spain is a passionate golfing nation with knowledgeable fans and a history of developing generations of talented golfers while Andalusia’s strong cultural heritage will make for a unique experience for players, guests and supporters alike.

“We are delighted to announce Spain as the host nation for the 2023 Solheim Cup when it returns to European soil.”

Voted recently as Europe’s number one resort by users of the respected website Leadingcourses.com, the resort’s 18-hole championship course was designed by Cabell Robinson and is the first venue in Spain to feature a new, eco-friendly variety of Bermuda grass on all its greens.
