The Club at Crazy Horse Ranch (previously known as Salinas Golf & Country Club) in Monterey boasts a reputation as "the friendliest club in the area." Opened in 1925, it's also known as one of the area's oldest clubs though they are loathe to label themselves as "traditional". The golf course sprawls across rolling countryside dotted with mature trees and the occasional water hazard. Originally opened as a nine-hole layout, the golf course may appear somewhat short at just over 6,200 yards from the back tees but don't underestimate its level of difficulty. It's a tight layout that demands accuracy, especially when navigating the small greens. There is plenty of variety at The Club at Crazy Horse Ranch, you may even find yourself using all the clubs in your bag. The golf course finishes with a stunning view of Salinas Valley from an elevated tee. The fairway slopes downhill to a well protected green guarded on the left with trees and on the right with bunkers.

Great day at Crazy Horse

From begging to end it was a great experience. Booked on Golf Now for 3. Asked if we could change to 4....no problem. Asked if we could go just a bit later....no problem. Pace of play less than 4 hours and we took our time. Course was in fantastic condition. Greens were extremely fast but sooo true. I loved it. So much so I entered a team in the Italian Tournament even though I'm not a member. Lastly Matthew in the clubhouse was just about as professional and friendly as anyone we have come across before.

Tough for beginners

Very small and unforgiving greens, almost impossible to keep your ball from rolling off. Well kept course and plays pretty short. Beat the wind and get out early.

Great find

Super staff, great pace of play, fun layout, small greens set up a nice challenge on both GIR and up and down par saves. Greens tended to be on the hard side prior to aeriation but they were quite smooth. I will be back soon!

I liked it!

Booked through Golf Now Hot Deals. It took much longer to get there due to 101 traffic issues & was a little late. Staff still got me on (thank you) & I finished in less than 3 hours. Course is in great shape & I thought it was an interesting layout. Would be interested in coming back.

Super Golf course

The three of us are all over 65 and play once a week. The Golf course at Crazy Horse is both fun to play and challenging. Fairways are well kept and the greens fast but fair. We played with another 65+ and finished the round in less than 4 hours..Well kept and fair..
