Played Rams Hill when it opened in the 80's but the course has changed dramatically. Great desert course that has generous fairways that mostly keep the desert out of play. However they make up for the wide fairways with well placed and large bunkers. Fairways and greens were perfect. Greens had enough undulation and tiers to keep you on your toes and the green-side bunkers were deep! However, the condition of the sand was excellent and rewarded a properly played bunker shot. The greens did bounce a bit before checking so landing your irons about 20 feet short of the hole was a must. Really fun layout and a great staff. Can't rate the food as they close the restaurant on Mondays and Tuesdays. Drove almost 2 hours to get there from San Diego but will consider this course as a once per year visit.

Would travel: 60-120 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Ranks with the best in this price level, Best course in the area
