The Club at Crazy Horse Ranch
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.

Another fun day at the course
First time at this course, found out semi private(?) my tee time was move up cause of tournament, staff were great and pair me up with very friendly people. Course was in good condition, lay out was great. Had great time at the course. Hope to see more tee time at Golfnow or other site.
Nice and fast
Round took 3 hrs and 20 minutes. Every course should have this pace!
Greens were still a little too slow due to recent aeration but they roll fairly true. Rest of the course is in pretty nice shape.
I'll be back.
Hidden gem of a course. Nice driving range, putting green and chipping area. I played when the wind was about 25 to 30 mph and pretty cold and still enjoyed the round. The fairways were in good shape (there were a lot of ground squirrels but the fairways were relatively clear of holes). The bunkers were in great shape. The tiny greens had been sanded but were in great shape and the ball rolled well. Sharp doglegs, trees, elevation changes and sloped fairways put an emphasis on accurate tee shots. Work the ball if you can. It gets a bit crowded at some hole locations where the tee boxes and greens are in close proximity to each other. It is a par 72 and our foursome finished in a little over 3 hours. We felt a bit rushed as it seemed the local Friday threesomes were trailing us but they didn't say anything or complain. Friendly staff and golfers here.
Very Nice and Challenging Course
I love this course's layout! Layout is challenging for any handicap player. Number 5 is a 3-story downhill par 3 that's majestic! Course conditions are outstanding! It's very well maintained golf course!! Bathrooms are clean and very well maintained!
Its great to be back..
First time back here since over 3 years ago. Beautiful layout, very friendly staff. It was a bit breezy and cool today but ala in all, a great day for golf at a great course.
Couldn’t ask for a better day! The staff is beyond helpful and friendly. Fairway, tee boxes and greens all in excellent condition for this time of the year. Pace of play was perfect. We are looking into joining this wonderful golf course.
Over sanded greens
Overall this course was good, but they had just punched the greens and they applied way too much sand. Also it should be noted when booking that the greens had just been punched and sanded.
An old fashioned design that is certainly refreshing. The course stretches out in front of you and invites you to 'come get me.' More challenging than it first appears.
Greens couldn't be any better. Fairways are excellent but some kikuyu grass in the rough that can be difficult to deal with.
Staff was professional, helpful, and friendly. Pace of play was unbelievably fast.
Highly recommend playing this golf course.
its Crazy not to play Crazy Horse
if you are looking for challenging course!.. .. it has a tight fairway..green is silky smooth.. a true roll!.. oh by the way, cant beat the free coffee,tea,sobe drinks, water and ice all day!
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.
Me gusto el campo un poco corto, pero con buen grado de dificultad los greens son chicos pero con exelente velocidad.
Disfrute mucho el campo solo me gustaria aberlo jugado con otra persona gracias.
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.
very good course and friendly, professional staff
So SLOW...3 hours on the back 9...ridiculous. Needs someone to...marshall.. have terrible and uneducated golfers to be conscious of others..at least know the rules of pace of play , etc.
Awesome layout of holes. Great course and wicked nice staff. I enjoy playing this course when ever I get the chance
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..
Sparklingg it at Crazy Horse
Still can't believe that this place is not crowded.
Very good value in Salinas
Staff very friendly. Course was in very good condition, considering the shape of other Northern California courses in this drought condition. A number of blind shots and uncertainty how to position the drive on various doglegs makes this a challenge for anyone who has not played the course before. Look forward to my second outing now that I have familiarity with the layout.
