Afterwards we checked out the facilities, received complimentary drinks, enjoyed an amazing lunch and watched the game from the club house.
Personally, I didn't even know that a country club existed in Cuenca until all the players (coming from the States, Paraguay, Bolivia, Argentina and other parts of the country) kept running into me (literally!). They were staying next door at the Hotel Oro Verde and I managed to get sideswiped by their tennis bags a few times (wow, those things are huge!). Mark and I ended up going on the last day of the tournament (Saturday, January 29th) and thoroughly enjoyed our time.
The Cuenca Country Club is a lovely place, halfway between the Hotel Oro Verde and the Cajas (a 20 minute drive from our place) and located in a picturesque setting. We saw some folks we knew and chatted with them and met some other wonderful folks who invited us to their table for lunch, so it was a great experience.
Country Club in Cuenca, check it out (I'm still amazed at the diversity of what we keep finding here).
Until next time...hasta luego!
