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.

Overall the best!
We couldn’t find one fault with this beautiful golf course today. The fairways are in great shape as well as the greens and tee boxes! Pace of play was spot on also. Best of all is the friendly staff that are so welcoming!!
This course is an old gem
Take your driver out of the bag and enjoy!! The holes are fairly short even from the blues. You will need to place the ball in the right spots off the tee to maximize scoring opportunities The greens are in great shape. It doesn’t fit my eye and I still like to play CRAZY HORSE!
Perfect weather for a nice play
Always a fun to play Crazy Horse Golf as it's a nice course. The pace of play always good for us to complete the round in 4 hrs.
Would play again, however...
Course in good condition, decent layout, greens in very good shape and rolled very well. The rental clubs left a lot to be desired, they were not clean ( at least not the iron faces, clubs were same brand (Strata) but shafts did not all have the same flex. Maybe I should not expect much for $30 rentals. I would play again if I had my own clubs.
Challenging but fair
Fun course. Forces you to hit certain shots off the tee. Greens were in great shape. Great value, I will play it again
Some pretty interesting holes. Some, not so much. it's definitely worth another go round. Course knowledge is a necessity and a course map would be a good thing to have in the cart.
You couldn’t ask for a more perfect round of golf! The staff is always friendly and very accommodating. The fairways, tee boxes and greens are pristine for this time of year and the amount of play they get. I highly recommend this course!
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.
