As good as any of the best courses in Palm Springs or Phoenix

Been playing golf for 30 years and this might be the best course I’ve ever played. Greensbwere silky smooth and running at 11, ponds, creeks, and really deep bunkers. This course plays on the side of a hill so no boring flat holes this course is a PEACH. the staff were very friendly and helpful I’ll be back very soon. Oh I forgot brand new top of the line carts

A gem!

Course is definitely worth the drive from Palm Desert. Excellent layout and conditions. Greens were running 11 and had plenty of character! Looking forward to playing it again next trip!

Lived up to the HYPE

conditions were great, greens rolled a good 11.5 and true. I was pretty much alone the whole time I played. I was a single and when I did catch up to a group, without hesitation they let me play through. What good people. Played 18 in 2.5 hours. Range was great and they use Pro V1 for range balls. What an experience. I'm a fan and will return when I visit Palm Springs again

Great Course

I’ve been looking forward to playing here at Rams Hill for sometime now after reading the fantastic reviews it’s gotten. I was not disappointed in the least. It’s in the best condition a golfer can ever hope for with a very friendly and knowledgeable staff. I’ve played many courses up and down California, Nevada, Arizona and Colorado. It’s as good or better than any private or resort course I’ve played. It’s off the beaten trail but worth the trip there.

Best course in SoCal

We played Rams Hill 3 times in 2 days and loved every minute of it! Ok, that double bogey on 18 wasn’t fun. All staff, from the cart guys to the proshop to the restaurant, were helpful with great attitudes..
Course has wide fairways and big greens, but has plenty of trouble in the form of 450 yard par 4’s and 190 plus par 3’s and at least 6 bunkers on every hole.
We rented a house on the course which made it super convenient and comfortable, and the food at the course and in town was great.

Great course

Played on 20% off deal, so very affordable
Course is in fabulous shape, but pace of play on the 26th was awful. There were four threesomes in front of us and they all played from the blue tee boxes, but the two groups directly in front of us were hitting 150 yard drives. The marshal did not feel obligated to do anything about it
The group behind us was very frustrated as well
Made for a very long round, waiting on just about every shot on the back nine.
Plus the GPS was not reprogrammed apparently after not being used on Christmas Day. Totally worthless on judging all 18 pin positions
Despite all that, I’ll definitely come back to play as the course is that good

Priceless !!!

From the moment we arrived at bag drop. We were greeted and the staff was top notch. Course was “the best” course I’ve played in San Diego county and I have played all of them. Greens ran true , fairways were never been touched carpets , every bunker had fine sand and raked to perfection. All the ingredients to a near perfect round of golf. Thank you Rams Hill

Awesome Course!

Had the opportunity to play Rams Hill in early December. What a fantastic experience from Tee to Green! Course layout was amazing, greens were pure, staff was friendly and accommodating. There was nothing else we could have asked for playing Rams Hill. Even new PROV1 on the range!

Would highly recommended this to anyone!!!!

Without questions top 3 public courses in Southern California...Period! This place will spoil you. I'm going to have a very hard time play other courses. Hence, I will most likely be driving to Rams Hill and be at peace.

Hidden Gem in So Cal

This was my 4,th visit to Rams Hill and it gets better every year. The course is one of,if not the best in So Cal and I have played a lot of them.
The tees, fairways and greens are always so well maintained. The service in the pro shop, bar and restaurant is top notch.

Great Conditions

This was my 5th time playing the course and yesterdays conditions were the best I have experienced. Maintenance was top notch with fairways and bunkers the best I was ever experienced at rams Hill. The greens were the only part of the course that needs improvement as they were soft and bumpy in places but were certainly playable.
