Salinas Golf & Country Club
It was challenging as many of the fairways slope to one side or the other, but I enjoyed the challenge and would like to play it again.

Very interesting course
The course is much more challenging than the distance indicates. Very small greens that are in great shape. It is amazing how many trees get in the way even when you hit it straight.

Great greens, great price
Played on a Sunday for $39 at 11:20. Course was wide open. Nobody behind us or in front of us. It's my second time playing here. Perfect greens. Very small greens so your chipping better by on. IMO, best deal out there. Course is worth a lot more than $40. It's not Bayonet or Blackhorse but it's fun and challenging.

Short but challenging course
I played two rounds of Golf yesterday @ Salinas Country Club, the greens are fast, sloped and difficult, just the way most golfers like them. The course is a little on the short side, but has several skinny fairways and tough smallish greens that make up for the lack of length, and don't get fooled by the distance there are some tough, tough holes on these sloped hills to navigate.
Its a beautiful layout with almost no homes in view/play, only a few holes on the beginning of the back nine.
Playing golf here is Always an enjoyable experience.

One of the best in Salinas
Tight fairways with trees that penalized the wayward shots. Workers there were sometimes fearless!

Never crowded, extremely friendly, challenging but fun course
I have only played here a few times, but each time is an excellent experience. You will truly enjoy your time at this course, from the moment you meet with the excellent staff, to the time you get back to your vehicle at the end of the day. Excellent warm-up area with a full driving range is only the start to a great round. Challenging holes, both long and short, will test all your skills. Several opportunities to score if you can manage your game well, and some holes let you bomb it freely without being too harsh for those slightly off center contacts. Fairways are in great shape, and even the rough can be slightly forgiving. The greens are always excellent, and on my last day were running true, and quick! Great course with even better value for your money. You will not be disappointed!

Nice "old school" design, well maintained and fun to play.
It's not Pebble Beach but it was well designed. Salinas Valley Country Club is an "old school" course that still values shot making without a gorilla drive. The greens are small and simple to read, and very well maintained. The bunkers have good sand and the mature trees present a challenge if you put the ball in the wrong place off the tee.
It was worth the drive from Monterey to play the course. I was surprised that it wasn't busier, finishing in just under four hours.
