Best Places To Golf In San Diego County – Rams Hill Golf Club In Borrego Springs

June 02, 2016

Avid golfers love the challenge of a new course. Playing a round in a new location with its own unique terrain is a thrill that even the most seasoned golf enthusiast enjoys time and time again. If you have clubs and willing to travel, you might want to visit Rams Hill Golf Club in Borrego Springs, CA.

Borrego Springs and its unique weather, wildlife, and plant life provide a one-of-a-kind golf experience. The elevation changes, unparalleled sunshine, lakes, streams, waterfalls, surrounding mountain vistas, and warm, dry desert air make Rams Hill a rewarding and challenging course.

The course spans just over 7,200 yards, offering five sets of tees and currently holds a 75.1 rating. Tom Fazio was in charge of designing the course but unlike many of his other famous golf course creations, this one is open to the public with reasonable rates. For those unfamiliar with Tom Fazio’s work, he is one of the most respected names in golf course architecture and has had more golf courses rank in the U.S. Top 100 than any other architect in the field.

Rams Hill also boasts a restaurant with a large wine selection that overlooks the immaculate course and the Santa Rosa mountains. Perched high above the desert floor, you can take in the rich terroir of the course or the sun setting in a wash of brilliant powder blues, passionate purples, and ravishing reds.
