This is a totally new golf course. Not the old, Ted Robinison Rams Hill course built in the early 80s that most people remember. In fact, only a privileged few have played this formerly private course which will be open to the public in November, 2014. Fazio finished the course in 2008, but due to the recession it was closed for a few years. Under the direction of the original architect every green and bunker has been restored to its former pristine condition.
The course now has its own wells that overlie a separate and balanced aquifer. While some of the water levels in the Borrego’s northern aquifers have dropped over 100 feet, the aquifer that supplies Rams Hill’s water is at the same level it was over fifty years ago. Because Rams Hill uses less than half the water consumed by other desert courses, we consider ourselves to be one of the most water conscious courses in California. Our solar facility (in the development stage), state of the art irrigation system, bio-retention basins, reduced turf areas, unique driving range, and the introduction of only native draught tolerant vegetation in the surrounding landscaped areas are only a few ways we have demonstrated our commitment to being a good neighbor and creating a sustainable future for our community.
