Best Golf Course in SOCAL

This was probably my 8th round at Rams Hill. In my opinion, the course is challenging, but fair. I belong to the Torrey Pines Mens Club, but Rams Hill is my favorite course. The greens are in superb shape. The course is closed from early June until the first part of November, This may factor into why the course is always in such great condition. You will not be disappointed!

Lived up to our expectations!

This was our first time playing. We had high expectations considering the course's reputation. I'm happy to say that we were very impressed with the staff, course and in spite of a little wind, really had a great time. (Spoiler Alert!!) The cookie at end of the round was a sweet surprise! We'll be back soon I hope!

Thanks for the wonderful review. We are very proud of our hidden gem in Borrego Springs. The fresh homemade cookies are wonderful and on hot days you may find a homemade ice cream sandwich too......

Nice track but they failed to manage pace of play

Getting to Borrego Springs is not easy. That is the first hurdle. The course has a nice layout and is a good challenge but management failed to monitor the pace of play. They reportedly have a cart tracking system that will point out problems with slow groups quickly but apparently they do not know how to use it or are afraid to offend the guilty party. Five plus hour round. We waited for one to two groups to clear on every single hole except number one.

Rbrady807,

Thank you for visiting Rams Hill. I'm very sorry about the length of your round. We pride ourselves on the fact that the average length of a round at Rams Hill is 4hrs 15mins. However on a busy Saturday like the day you played our times occasionally slip. I hope you will come and visit us again soon. Enjoy the golf season.

Incredible Course

Breathtaking yet forgiving fairways, immaculate greens, challenging bunkers with incredible views of the surrounding mountains and valley. Absolutely loved it. Challenging but not to the point of penalizing you too much for misplaced shots.

Amazing course, amazing staff

Played two rounds here and simply put it was an amazing day.
Course was beautiful, staff was friendly in the pro shop and at the restaurant between rounds.
Will be back with a larger group, the only thing that would’ve made it an even better time!

Great course

We played this course earlier in February. It was quite cold then and we didn’t finish. We said we had to try it again when we came back. This time it was much warmer. The course was in amazing shape. It can play tough or easy depending on the tee boxes you chose.

Very Nice

The course was very nice. Spectacular views. Fun but challenging layout, even from the white tees. We had a bit of a slow group in front of us but still finished in under 4.5 hrs. We had a perfect weather day with light winds. I can see it would be a tough slog in high winds. A bit of local knowledge would be nice. Tricky greens with lots of contours and unusual breaks. I’d like to play there again when I’m playing better!

One of the Best in Southern California

I have played this course a total of 4 times in the past 3 years. The condition of the greens and fairways has declined from my first 3 visits. This is likely due to the unusual amount of rain this area has received this year. There were areas of several greens that were without grass (possible fungus?). And the fairways were not as lush as in prior years. But overall the course conditions still rated 4+ stars. The sand traps were in great condition, and most of the greens rolled very true (and fast). But given the decline in the condition of the fairways and greens, and can't give this course a 5-star rating for course conditions. And with the course conditions declining a bit, I can't give it 5 stars for value either. BUT, this is still one of the best courses in So CA!

Pushy

upon arriving at thr coarse we were told that we need to keep a 4 .10 pace because fast playing members wld be pushing us.. also told the coarse was booked. after 4 holes we realized we had the coarse to ourselves.
Marshall sat and watched every hole we played. it was an Erie feeling.
finaly wr had to ask for a cart girl to come out as there was no ammenities on the coarse and the starter failed to tell us.. coarse is neautiful and good shape..
i wld play again.

A must play

Having seen this course listed in Golfweeks "Best Places You Can Play," I decided I had to make the 2 hour drive from Palm Springs.
I was not disappointed.
First impression was this course was in the middle of nowhere. But, once you get in to the course, everything changes.
First, the driving range is stocked with Pro V1 range balls. Nice touch.
Then, when you get to the course, the tee times are spread out to make for an enjoyable round, without the wait between shots.
Had we not been a twosome, behind a foursome, we likely would not have seen a single individual the whole round.
Give this course a chance when in the Cochella Valley. You won't be disappointed.

My favorite course in S California

Always great conditions. Greens run perfectly. I have played with low and very high handicappers who enjoy the layout. No hidden traps or gimmicks. I always look forward to driving down to Borrego Springs for a day of golf at Rams Hill. This time we toured some of the spectacular iron sculptures in the desert near Rams Hill before heading home. I have reccomended this course to several friends and they all love the golf course.

First Class

Our day was fantastic. Wonderful course, perfectly maintained and a 4 hour 10 min pace of play. Excellent facilities from the lovely restaurant/lounge to the ProV1s on the range. Unless you live in Borrego Springs, it's going to be a drive to get there, but the 90min drive from Palm Springs was well worth it for us and we would do it again.
