Finca Cortesin offers Michelin star Japanese experience

Golfers with a taste for the finer things in life can mix world-class golf with Michelin-starred Japanese dining at the deluxe Finca Cortesin Hotel, Golf & Spa this spring.

Available to book throughout 2017 and costing €325 (approx £282) per person, golfers will receive a welcome gift on arrival before enjoying 18 holes on Finca Cortesin’s acclaimed championship layout, a three-time host of the Volvo Match Play Championship.

Having worked up an appetite on the course, players can then take the weight off their feet and experience a sumptuous tasting menu dinner (including wine cellar) at Kabuki Raw, which has held one Michelin star since 2015.

Kabuki Raw is managed and run by Finca Cortesin with the expert guidance of the Kabuki Group, a world leader in Japanese cooking.
