D has been talking about playing golf in Mexico for the last couple of months. He’d scouted a course near Litibu Beach where they’d walked two years ago – and where L had her first taste of octopus.
After numerous tries at getting a tee time, he opted instead for a nine-hole course in San Pancho called Los Huertas Golf Club. Opened in 2006 (we think), it was described repeatedly at “short but challenging,” and D agreed. The photo right says it all: teeing off through a short jungle alleyway. Of course, anytime the ball needs to go absolutely straight, it doesn’t.
L enjoyed driving the cart, but even that was a bit challenging as there were a lot of steep ups and down. They were both glad they carted it.
After play, they walked the not quite two miles into San Pancho proper where they had lunch at Barracuda, which they’d so enjoyed two years ago. Not quite as good as they remembered but good enough. And great people watching, like when a man with a machete came racing down the street.
They came back to Playa Escondida were a rest before going down to the terrace to enjoy the sunset. It was very pretty…
