Week three on the Web.com Tour visited Bogota, Colombia and the Country Club de Bogota-Lagos. The $700,000 purse in Colombia is one of the richest events of the season. World’s Best Golf Destinations is tagging along the 2019 season with Trevor Cone, a proud Virginia Tech Hokie originally from North Carolina — here’s the latest from the road.
WBGD: Did you have dinner at the famous restaurant Andres Carne de Res? If not, what was the grub highlight?
Cone: I didn’t get the chance to go to Andrés this time around, which was very disappointing. Surprisingly enough, the best meal I had was at this sushi place called Takumi. It was right around the corner from the hotel and course and the best part was how cheap it was. I got the 20 piece house special for $15!
WBGD: Take your pro golfer hat off and be a tourist for a moment — what did you think of Bogota?
Cone: I’ve always been a big fan of Bogotá even though I’ve only been twice now. The weather is incredible and the people are very friendly. Not related to the tourist part, but the people love golf and the tournament got one of the biggest turn outs I’ve ever seen.
WBGD: Highlight of the week?
Cone: Checking out Monserrate, the highest peak that overlooks the city. If you want something to do while in Bogotá, that’s what I would suggest. I think the best time to go is just before sunset to see the city during the day and at night. Incredible views.
WBGD: What’s next on your schedule?
Cone: I’ve got two more weeks on the road. I’m in Panamá next week and Sarasota, Florida the following week. Then, there’s a nice month long break in the schedule allowing for some much needed down time back home in Charlotte.
WBGD: Doughnut report!
Cone: Doughnut report is a little weak again this week, but I did manage to snag a few from this place called the Donut Factory and they certainly exceeded expectations. 6.8/10. Get the standard glazed or chocolate dipped.
