Rams Hill: 1/27/2017
I've been reading GK reviews for RH for the last few years. I've been dying to get down there but haven't found the time. Well, the girlfriend was out of town this weekend so I decided to solo trip down to Borrego and see what all the hype was about.
The customer service was top notch, the starter was great and the guy in the clubhouse was friendly and accommodating. Being a single I figured I would be paired up on a Saturday with another group. Well apparently I was wrong and this course doesn't fill their tee sheet like the Palm Springs courses. I played solo in 3.5 hours, getting stuck occasionally behind a 4 ball here and there.
Conditions: Excellent from tee to green. Greens were posted in clubhouse at 11.6 on the stimp which to me is excellent speed for rolling some putts in! Smooth, pure, medium firmness, and quick (9/10). The fairways were pure as can be, I would say a solid 8/10. Easy to take nice divots and the ball still rolled out on well struck drives. Tees were lush and perfect (9/10) but I wish they would have cut them a little tighter. Sand was excellent and I found myself a lot of sand so I can attest to them!
All in all, I will be back this season. Just blown away at the whole facility/property. Prov1 Range balls, endless views, lush striped fairways and pure putting surfaces. Oh yeah, and its also a fantastic Fazio design! Forgiving off the tee but hazards lurk and the greens are very undulating and difficult to navigate. I ended up squeezing in a second round and given the lateness in the day he only charged me 20$ and i was able to loop through all 18 in 1 hour and 45 minutes!! Record for me perhaps. Get out there and enjoy Rams Hill, its a true hidden gem and worth the drive.» Close
