Course has taken a down hill fall
I was grew up and was born in Lompoc, served in the Military for 10 years then moved to Las Vegas, NV. Growing up this course itself was very, very prestine and even hosted PGA Q school. Its known for its elevation changes, winds, and ice plants, with tall trees. Recently I came the course is still in good shape though i noticed the bunkers were not raked or maintained, the man at the register said the flag pin was a position 2, the course marker was position 4. On hole 3 there is no signage for the blue or black tees, youll hit from the whites on accident. I never saw a cart girl, no water on any holes. 2 holes had broken water ball washers. Hole 14 had probably 10-14 gopher holes in the sand traps. Aside from this im glad i played here, the elevation and winds play a massive effect on your game. Bring extra balls if you can, a take a few pictures.
Pure beauty and toughness.
Special course! From the location to the layout, this course is a hidden gem in California. Conditions were good. A lot of undulating and tough greens putting pretty true. Bunkers were in ok conditions. Played on a Friday and pace of play was excellent. I normally walk while playing but decided to ride because of how much elevation change the course has. If I am ever again in the area I will definitely play again. Very tough test of golf.
Diamond in the Rough
This is a course that keeps bringing me back ! One of my favorites that challenge all your skills as a golfer.
Some course design changes annoyed
The 2 bunkers that used to be in the middle of the fairway on 15 blocking the tee shot have been removed!!!! Very disappointed in that!
The rest of the course was about the same. Condition wise, the bunkers were muddy and not sandy, tough to play out of but playable. Greens were very firm and fast, but extremely grainy. Really difficult to putt today.
The sprinkler heads need yardages. Too many of them missing or hard to find.
One of my all time favourite courses, extremely challenging but always extremely fun to play. Just extremely disappointed in the changes.
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.
Great course but I’m a rookie so it was tough and a long course. Worth every cent , lost lots of balls . Only recommendation is they rehab sand it’s a bit solid .
Drove hour and half to get there well worth it course has some long holes if you can't carry 275 wouldn't play back tees greens incredible carts top of line
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.
Challenging course. Helps to have someone that knows the course to help if possible. Very difficult depending on the lies.
Love this course
One of my favorite tracks on the Central Coast. Great bang for your buck with a high caliber golf course. And yes, it's got some tricky holes you need to play gently.....
one of my favorite courses on the central coast
always in great condition, staff very accommodating.
True "Country" Club
Had a great round, it was a beautiful day & really enjoyed this unique rustic layout
Real test of your game
Windy conditions ,and a long track didn't fair well for scoring. But a great deal from golf now made it worthwhile.
Played the Blues (6670/73.1/136) with GK Guru's Gary & Pedro in brisk, breezy early morning conditions that warmed up to quite pleasant by the conclusion of the round. We played in around 4.5 H and enjoyed the surroundings. The tees were above average with adequate coverage. Several are crowned but only the par 3's needed divot repair. Only #3 (coots) was in poor shape. The rough was lush, thick and punitive. Forget advancing clubs their regular distance out of this stuff. Much thicker than most So Cal courses, tough to chip out of or hit the longer clubs necessary to reach the green if you miss the fairway here. The sand traps were nicely maintained with thick sand. The large greens were mostly smooth, putted medium fast speed and held approach shots well. Only #2 (coots) was not in well above average condition. Biggest negative is that there is no GPS on the carts and this is one of the poorest marked courses for yardage I have ever played. The customer service was excellent from everyone encountered. No drink cart, but adequate water on the course. Fun, very demanding layout. Love that there are zero houses anywhere close and all the old oak trees around the course. I get beat up by this course every time I play here but still enjoy the experience. Recommended = Yes.
Great course for a challenge
Staff was friendly. I was paired up with 2 other golfers who knew the course. That was a good thing because you have to know where the hidden hazards are. The course was very challenging. I enjoyed it very much. Definitely one of the toughest courses in the area. I would highly recommend.
