Golfers are finding their way back to the winter wonderland that is Rams Hill Golf Club in the shadow of Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, two hours from San Diego and 90 minutes from Palm Springs. This 18-hole Tom Fazio layout found new life five years ago (with an assist from the team at Jackson-Kahn Golf Design) and has worked its way back up the Places You Can Play rankings — currently landing at No. 4 on Golfweek’s California list. Wide fairways, memorable greens, expansive views and some of the best conditions in the state have turned Rams Hill into a must-play for golf travelers looking to add new stops to their bucket lists.
Rams Hill is open seasonally (November-May) to maintain peak agronomy, and the open-to-the-public destination club now offers a variety of stay-and-play options — House on the Hill overlooking the 14th fairway, perfect for buddies trips of 4-8 players, plus packages with nearby lodging at La Casa Del Zorro and Borrego Springs Resort — and full-service restaurant and bar.
