Thanks to the Starter

I have played La Piranha for 30 years. I had planned to play 18 today but a medical issue caused me to bail after 9. The staff was considerate enough to provide me with a rain check for the back 9. This was a very kind gesture and highly appreciated for its fairness.

Because you business was nice to me, I return the favor with a decent review.

Good day on the links

Winds were between 15-20 MPH. Course is well designed with distinct holes. lots of dog legs, elevation changes and target golf opportunities. I'm a mid handicapper and felt the course was a fair challenge to my game. Although it was windy, didn't feel the wind was punitive. I would enjoy playing it again as local knowledge is important.

one of my favorite courses on the central coast

The course is always in good condition and well maintained. I also appreciated the new carts which are very nice and even offer a USB connector which can be used for a smart phone or other device.
