The Ramateur 2020

Rams Hill Golf Club’s fun-filled golf tradition takes its first swings

Rams Hill Golf Club kicked off December and helped usher out 2020 with the inaugural playing of The Ramateur, our fun-filled weekend of competition, prizes, food and beverage that looks to be a tradition for years to come. With 36 holes played over Dec. 5-6, 2020, four first-time champions were crowned while a few others (including @golfinyourstate’s Matt Cardis) garnered Closest to the Pin honors on the Tom Fazio-designed championship course.

“Our first year with The Ramateur was definitely a success,” says Wil Mayo, Rams Hill’s director of golf sales and business development. “Even with a few protocols to work through, the players had a great time whether or not they were in the hunt for a trophy. As with any event, we learned a lot the first time around and are looking forward to making future events bigger, better and even more fun.”
