I also had the pleasure of playing the GK outing here and as always had a great time.
Really enjoyed the company of my playing partners and as others have detailed, the course is in almost perfect shape.
My only knock would be the greens not being up to the standard we have come to expect at Rams Hill. The biggest problem was that there were way to many poorly repaired ball marks. Come on guys how hard is it to fix your mark and maybe a couple of others.Not much the course can do about this except mention it to players when they tee off.
The staff I encountered were all top notch and very helpful.
Looking forward to the next outing here. As always a big thank you to Johnny for setting this up.

Played two days recently 12/6 & 12/9. Thursday was cart path only due to rain earlier in week by Sunday that was lifted to one hole the 10th. The course for December in NorCal was in terrific shape. Greens smooth and near perfect putting. A couple shades of green but consistent roll. Held well struck shots and chips with spin. Fairways great the mow strips visible from the tee box. The rough consistent not to thick variable lies as expected not too penal.

Just all around great course and a must play for a golfer looking for the above average course conditions, design, and customer service.

Course is part of Cache Creek casino which I visited for the first time after playing the course a half dozen times. Blackjack dealer was nice enough to provide me a $50 profit and on the course one of the brothers we were paired with hit a butter cut 6 iron into the cup on #4 for his first ever ace. Good time had by all!

Headed back out to Eagle Springs for a chilly but fun morning round of golf. Winter conditions have set in but the track is still in decent shape. Greens were smooth, but much slower. My guess is it's a combination of the recent rains and the fact that the course closes on Tuesday for maintenance so the greens probably were due for full mow and roll.

Fairway grass has started to go dormant. A lot of brown mixed in with the occasional green grass. Still, most of the fairway was lush and enjoyable to hit from. There were a number of thin and wet areas throughout the course.

The one sand trap I was in was decent, and no issues with the tee boxes. Cart gal was out making rounds on the cold day with few players so that was nice. Customer service is great. Everyone is very friendly.

Definitely a recommended track if in the area. It's a bit more expensive than some of the other courses in the valley but well worth it.

Played 12/10/18 in the GK outing - it's been a year since I was here and the more things change the more they stay the same. In a word, outstanding!

The biggest problem Rams Hill has is the abnormally high bar they've set for themselves when compared to most courses. They have always managed to meet those expectations and this time was no exception. Not sure how they do it, but there's just this comfortable, welcoming, "hey, you're part of the family" vibe that I've rarely encountered elsewhere that is part and parcel of the facility.

The fairway conditions were near perfection and the tee boxes are superior to most courses fairways. The sand was a little heavy but playable (well, except for the canyon-like faces I kept next to!) rough was lush but not overly dense - just enough to make you think about your shot while still leaving options as to what shot you decided to play.

As noted by a couple others, the greens seemed a little slower and bumpier than prior rounds, but I'm guessing that is at least partially related to the recent rains. Still very consistent and rolled very well.

As the last group, I was concerned about finishing before it got dark. However, the generous spacing between tee times worked exactly as intended - it allowed some ebb-and-flow for each group without compromising the overall pace of play. Just one more reason I love this course!

Thank you Greenskeeper, JohnnyGK and Rams Hill for a great end-of-the-year send off!

This course was nothing short of beautiful. The most difficult greens I have ever played due to the undulations and multiple levels. It's a tough course (over my head from a skill level perspective) but I'd play it again if afforded the opportunity...the experience was great and much of that had to do with the staff. From the clubhouse to the starter to the marshals and 19th hole personnel, it was just a great time!

Thanks, Aviara!

Rode the Blacks this afternoon teeing off around 12:10pm on a Teeoff.com promo special for $19.00 with my buddies Mack and Brian. POP was 4 hrs 50 minutes following a scramble tournament and finishing just at sunset which was spectacular tonight. Great staff and practice facilities and the weather was perfect maybe up to a 1 club wind at times and in the high 60's for temps.

The greens were semi quick and rolling nicely. Receptive and soft. Generally in good shape with just very minimal bounces.

The fairways have become more winter firm and thin and provide some decent roll out. Never had a bad lie in the fairway.

Rough is green, lush and beautiful around green complexes and just outside the fairways. Was only in one bunker back of 17 green that was raked and firmer with plenty of sand underneath.

Tees were in good shape, mostly lush. They have re-sodded the back tees on 17 which look beautiful and are almost done with the re-sodding the back tees on number 8.

Olivas is in good shape for December and I would highly recommend this course. It is becoming a popular track so get an earlier tee time this time of year.

Played today during an overcast and cool day. The course is in good condition except for a couple of greens that appear to be on the onset of some disease. They appear to be on top of maintaining the problem. Hole 15 has a temporary green set up. The greens were somewhat bumpy and was hard to read. The tee boxes have been overseeded and are thin but starting to grow back. Still an enjoyable round.

Great course as always... Fairways were excellent, rough kept the course challenging. The greens could be better (compared to past rounds here at Rams Hill), but not horrible.

Course services were great! very attentive staff. It's a trek for me coming from Orange County, but well worth the once yearly trip here.

Thank you Johnny for setting this up.

Another great GK outing! Enjoyed the day with Tim and Andrew . . . ALWAYS a pleasure playing with those two! It was great seeing the GKers out there as it seems like a looooong time since I last played in an event. The weather was perfect and even after the torrential rains (for SoCal anyways) the course played long but was in great shape! Nice solid layout, visually appealing, challenging and keeps your interest.
The accommodations afterwords were comfy and the food was tasty! Had the prime rib burger and was a juicy double patty delight!
Highly recommended all around!

I played yesterday in GK’s year end gathering. I hadn’t played as much golf this year as usual so there was no way I would miss this chance to play at Ram’s Hill.
This was my fourth time playing here and, once again, the course conditions were great. The forward tee boxes were all level with hardly any divots. The fairways are the most beautiful shade of green with not a bad lie to be found, and the rough was very manageable. The greens had a lot of spike marks but they didn’t seem to affect the rolls. There were some very challenging pin placements on the par 3s. I ended up in a few bunkers. The sand was great but a bit deeper than I can easily hit out of.
Thanks to Rams Hill’s staff and Johnny for another memorable day. I’m looking forward to next year’s outing.

The greens were surprisingly nice. HORRIBLE backups on several holes. Even in the beginning with multiple groups lining up for hole after hole.
Got in an argument with a guy who tried to sneak into the mix as well. Just awful, such people.
NO MARSHALL out there despite all the pace of play issues. I will not return as a result.
We started an hour before twilight, in the morning. ANd did not finish. Unacceptable.

Winter conditions Update! The course is a little rough right now. Play Winter rules an you'll be fine. Fairways are a little splochy (is that a word). There are spots on the fairways where you'll nee'd to move your ball to find some grass. In addition the fairways are cut very tight. Greens and bunkers are great. It's still a fun layout and the best draining course in the area but just wanted to let everyone know it needs a little TLC right now.
