Finally got out to play this highly regarded and suggested course. WOW! Easily in my personal top 3 public course I have ever played. from a course condition, it probably is in the top 2.
We have seen the Golfweek note saying Rams Hill is the 3rd best public course in California behind only Pebble and Spyglass, well we have played both of those within the last year, and course condition-wise, it is FAR superior to Pebble.  Put things into perspective, there are so many reviews already, I can only say as a first timer I was blown away.
Tee to green there is simply nothing out of place. This course is a MUST play.  Suck it up and make the drive.  For me from Lake Forest it took us 2 hours and 35 mins. to get there and it is a really nice drive to just chill out and enjoy. I would rate this in the 9.8 to 9.9 area….only reason not to give a 10 was “lack of GPS” and “no mayo on the club sandwich.”
Hey Golf Digest – this course absolutely deserves to be in the Top 100 US public courses list for 2017 and TOP course list in California.

Okay call me crazy, I have heard all the great things said about Rams Hill so I thought I would decide for myself. I made the 3 hour drive with 2 others yesterday in pouring rain to play here.
The weather reported that the rain would be light and would stop at 9:45 am so I made a 10:20 tee time. We arrived at 9:45 and the rain stopped at 10:10.
This place is golf heaven in the desert! Conditions were near perfect other than the winds that picked up on the back nine. Greens were 10-11 speed, tee boxes immaculate, fairways perfect, sand was great, and the course is a real gem. We bought the $150 twosome special and they charged our 3rd only $80 which was great. The round came with $15 credit vouchers for food so we stayed for lunch before driving home. It was a long day but was a real joy for us all.
Thanks to all the GK’ers for the spot on reviews.  We will be back soon!

Why Did We Expand the Regions?

It’s simple. has been growing.  We expanded the number of regions because golfers like you have reported about golf course conditions of the golf courses you play.  In short golfers come to us if they want informative, relevant golf course reviews and it’s all due to your, our GK Community’s, diligence.  You let us know your experiences and well if we hear about it everyone else does too.

Why so Many Regions?

Golf is an experience and every experience is unique.  Different golf courses offer different experiences.  What we look for in golf course reviews offers a little insight into every golf course we play.  Not just one point of view but many, and by providing many different points of view you get a clearer picture of what each golf course has to offer.  To that end we felt it necessary to provide regions with their own highlighted golf course.  Local players can enjoy the fact there is a great facility they can play just around their corner.  Golfers looking to experience new golf courses can play these and experience first-hand these unique golf experiences.  Put simply, we allow not just your high-end. daily fee courses to shine but the local municipal as well.  They all deserve a fair shot and they all deserve to shine.
