Legendary Architect & Golf Course Designer

One of golf’s great architects, Tom Fazio, sculpted a masterpiece out of a desert hillside in Borrego Springs, California.

Nestled in the center of the immense Anza Borrego State Park, the Rams Hill Golf Club course offers a unique sense of serenity and unrivaled vistas. The gently sloping terrain provides a perfect amount of elevation change to make each hole distinctly different: not too steep and not too flat. The mountains make for the perfect backdrop for greens surrounded by white sand bunkers and crystal blue lakes.

Throughout his 40 years in golf course design, Tom Fazio and his staff of talented designers have been recognized for creating award-winning courses throughout the United States. No living designer has more credits on Golf Digest’s list of “America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses,” and Golfweek’s collection of “America’s Best.”

The Golf Digest poll for “Best Modern Day Golf Course Architect” was discontinued after Tom claimed the award three consecutive times. He has also received The Old Tom Morris Award from the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America.

Fazio emphasizes  that “golf courses should reflect the natural beauty of their environments.” Maintaining that principle, Fazio Golf Course Designers strive to follow design priorities that include creating harmonious transitions from existing topographical conditions, developing courses that offer golfers of varying skill a challenging yet enjoyable experience, and providing each client with optimum use of the property.
