“Fresh off a year where adversity seemed more a way of life than an unfortunate phase, there was no better place to start again than Rams Hill. For if this splendid setting for golf can rise from the death grip of the desert floor, then we too can dust ourselves off and charge forward.”

The Golfer’s Journal, ‘The Outing’ January 2021

“Spent the past few days at one of my favorite courses in SoCal — Rams Hill Golf Club. Every day consisted of gorgeous views and conditions to help me get ready for the 2021 season.”

Lizette Salas, LPGA Top 25-Ranked Golfer

“Seriously loved the course and overall experience. Fair, a lot of fun, great mix of testy 3s, short 4s, reachable 5s. Can’t wait to go back.”

Matt Ginella, The Fire Pit Collective

“A beautiful 18-hole Tom Fazio design with friendly fairways and large greens. The House on the Hill is one of the best golf houses I’ve ever stayed at. We had a fabulous time.”

“No longer the best-kept secret in the sand, this mythical golf oasis has become a right of passage for golfers from across the West Coast and beyond, as the experience provides more than simply a challenging round and a few fun days in the sun.”

Ben Lyons, Caddie Magazine, Volume 10

Why Rams Hill?

Because we love golf. Just like you love golf. And every part of the award-winning Rams Hill Experience is created by golfers, for golfers. The 18-hole Tom Fazio layout was resurrected from the desert floor with the help of one of the industry’s hottest up-and-coming teams. The fairways and greens are brought to life each fall by a maintenance team dedicated to creating best-in-class playing conditions. Our restaurant philosophy is simple — create a menu of eats and drinks (and those mouthwatering apple-caramel cookies) that elevate your golf adventure and make you want to come back for more. And our Stay & Play Team prides themselves on finding the perfect overnight accommodations for every golfer, couple, foursome, group or event.

It’s time to Make Your Great Escape to the desert in the shadow of California’s largest state park. Enjoy pleasant fall and warm winter weather. Colorful, expansive outdoor spaces. After-golf fun and games, including a simulator loaded with America’s other best courses. Acres of surrounding terrain to explore. Even high-flying helicopter service. Most importantly, fill yourself an indelible sense of place and hospitality that turns any visit into a true golf getaway. It’s all here in the Middle of Nowhere. Exactly Where You Need To Be.

Rams Hill has been no stranger to change since its origins in the early 80’s. Superintendent Willie Lopez has seen, and built, a lot of golf courses since then, too. But winding roads often reconvene, and Willie once again finds himself in the soil of the Borrego Valley. Working. Building.
In harmony with nature.
