Stacy Lewis, captain of the United States team in the Solheim Cup, a golf tournament that between September 18 and 24, 2023 will face the European team at Finca Cortesín, visited the course located in the Malaga municipality of Casares and praised his facilities by stating that “they are the best greens in bermuda” in which he has played in his life.

“My first impression has been fantastic. You go out to play and, in addition to the spectacular views of the sea, the course is very fair with the game and is in very good condition. The greens are fast and at all times you have to place the ball in the good part of the hole because you can have very compromised putts,” Lewis said in statements provided this Wednesday by the organization of the tournament.
The double winner of Grand Slam tournaments wanted to see first-hand the place where her twelve players will meet with the twelve European golfers, during a visit during which, in addition to Finca Cortesín, she has also been to Marbella and Benahavís, where He intends to lead his team.
“I have been able to walk around the beach, the promenade, incredible restaurants, and now I understand why people come on vacation here, and have their second homes here. It is a great destination, we have tried the great gastronomic variety they have, and enjoyed their culture and hospitality. It’s been impressive.”
The captain, who defended the American team in the 2011, 2013, 2015 and 2017 editions, faces the responsibility of returning the trophy to her country after the two consecutive defeats suffered in 2019 and 2021, editions in which Stacy Lewis collaborated as vice-captain of Juli Inkster, first, and Pat Hurst, later.
Stacy Lewis, who when the 2023 Solheim Cup is played will become the youngest American captain in the history of the tournament, stated that she “would love to be able to transmit to all” her players “the culture of this area” and not just stay “in the golf course.”
