Not a single complaint about this course. Everything was top notch staff was amazing. Jasper and Mike in the pro shop were very helpful and knowledgeable. I will be recommending this course to a lot of San Diego golfers. You'd have to go to Palm springs to find a course in this good of condition usually so save yourself 2 hours of driving and go to Rams Hill.

The course is in immaculate shape, hats off to the greenskeeper for taking such good care, every course in San Diego could benefit from the skill possessed by these guys.

Suggestion, do not play this course in the afternoon, the wind makes it practically impossible to play. Pay the extra few dollars and play early morning, do not be fooled by the $80 afternoon rate. overall, like many have said there isn't a course in San Diego that can match the condition/stunning views this course has.

Worth the drive - we stayed for a few nights at the Casa del Zorro Hotel: the best way to enjoy the golf courses in Borrego Springs. It's just a pity that these great new courses are designed by architects that are NOT INTERESTED in creating a course that is walkable - too far green to tee.

Rams Hill is worth the drive no matter where you’re coming from! This course is always in spectacular condition and yesterday was just another day! I love this layout, it brings every club out of your bag and you have the confidence to hit every shot because no matter where you are, the lie is going to be pristine. I love how you can be creative with the greens, no matter where the pin is you can work the ball in and use the slopes and really play some cool golf shots! I would play this course everyday and almost feel like I’m plahing a different course because of the slopes and different ways to play it off the tee! Thanks again Rams Hill for an amazing day of golf!

Back for a second time and I almost forgot how much of a treat this golfing experience is. Absolutely gorgeous landscape with the desert mountains as a continuous backdrop. Completely lush and green from the rough to the fairways and greens. Not a single burnout spot to be found. Greens very rolling pure and smooth at about 11 on the stimp. There was some waiting on a few tee boxes but the pace of play was still kept to under 4:30. Jasper was very nice and friendly at the pro shop check-in. Driving range was in just as good shape as the course, stocked with ProV1's. Definitely worth the short 2 hour drive from San Diego. Hope to be back again soon!

I played this 72 holes this past weekend here at Rams Hill for a friends 40th birthday (18 Friday, 36 Saturday and another 18 on Sunday) and couldn't be any happier.

First off the staff is extremely inviting, friendly, and accommodating to all your needs. Secondly, the practice facilities are the best in Southern California with multiple chipping greens, ProV1 range balls, and large putting greens to help anyone warm-up and practice properly. Lastly, there aren't enough words to describe the immaculent conditions that this course was in. There wasn't a blade of grass out of place, and the Fazio design allows for a very fun day. The pace of play was exactly 4 hours each day too! We played 72 holes and with varying winds and changing up tee boxes throughout the weekend, it allowed for a rewarding trip and I'll come back to this place in a heart beat.

If you are in San Diego County and want to play the best course around, then make the trip out to Rams Hill! P.S. Way better than Torrey Pines and cheaper if you're not a resident. Thanks Mike and Renee for a great weekend!

Course is unbelievable but pace of play was really slow. We teed off at 12 and finished at 515 or so. The last two holes we struggled to see the ball. We also got unlucky with insane wind conditions. At least 30-40 mph winds made the play insane. The director compensated the slow play with drink vouchers which was nice. Overall love this course would come back definitely.

Played last week and it was wonderful. Me and my coworker from Arrowood Golf Course in Oceanside were given the industry rate and it was an honor to play at Rams Hill. Great conditions, very picturesque.

Pace of play on back nine was a little on the slow side but that’s no wonder, it’s such a beautiful course that people wanted to take their time and so did we. Thanks again for having us out. The General Manager was very friendly and the entire staff was accommodating and welcoming to us.

The reason for this review is to let the golf world know what they might be missing out on here in Southern California.

I found this gem a few years ago and have told everyone that will listen how wounderful this course is to play. More then half of my men’s club now make the trip to play here as well as our womens club love to play here. We make the drive for the Palm Springs Area.

Rams Hill is as scenic as it is fun to play. The vistas from every tee box/green or in some cases the hazards are just remarkable.

This Fazio course is laid out in conjunction with the slop of the of the mountain that it rest near. Seamlessly flows along the side of the plateau. The front nine will you find yourself playing in to the mountain and the backside plays moving down the plateau and back to the clubhouse.

Each hole is unique in its layout and playes well with its environment. The many water features and creeks flow well with the course layout.

The greens at Rams Hill are by far the best in this part of California and I’d put them up against any I’ve ever played. Getting the slope and speed rite could be a challenge for some but once you understand how the ball falls to the valley floor then it’s just a matter of getting the ball rolling on you target line and watching it go in the hole. The greens are just that pure!

The fairways are wide and fair not a blade of grass longer the the other. The course conditions from the front gate to the 18th green are just excellent.

So if your ever in Borrego spring or Southern California and have a few hours to play do yourself a solid and give mike the head pro a call. He will be more then happy to work with you! Very responsive guy and wants all to enjoy his gem of a course.

Great place to play!!! We got through the round today in 3 house as we were first out today. However we’ve never played a round out there that’s longer the 4:15 minuets in the 3 years I’ve been playing there.

Disclaimer!, I’m just a golfer that plays 3 days a week and I’m an 11 index. I don’t work for Rams Hill just stay and play there and or drive there every so offten.

I truly believe you owe it to yourself to make your way to one of the best track you’ll find in all of California.

Could the next hole be as good as this hole? We kept saying that for 18 holes! How many golf courses have I played.? Many, but this is in the top 5%. Tight fairway lies? No way fellow golfers. Easy to get a 3 or 4 wood in the air. Greens very undulating but a true read; might be a trade mark of Tom Fazio. I have an 11 handicap and played the white tees (5824 yds). Feeling so good I’ll return and play the blues. $80.00 on Golfnow...go play this course...wow

Great layout with some very pretty holes, especially the back 9 with some great changes in elevation. Greens very good and no cart restrictions which makes it worth the drive from Palm Springs as all the courses there are CPO due to recent overseeding. Very generous off the tee so high handicappers would enjoy as well as better golfers. Booked on golf now and got a great rate but there was a mix up with the tee time so would recommend you either book direct or call the course to reconfirm your tee time. The starter did slot us in so it was not a problem.
