First off at twilight . . . niiiiiice!
POP, 3 1/2 hrs . . . niiiiiice!
Tee boxes OK
Fairways nice in the areas you should be playing from, tails off from there
Rough, minimal, there in spots not in others
Greens, highlight! smooth, rolling well at medium speed, a tad hard but acceptable
Bunkers all looked nice
Overall, for $19 to walk a good deal, playable, but once again, nothing exceptional right now
Back to the friendly confines. Found the course in good playable shape, nothing great, everything average. Greens are still slow although almost completely healed from the punching a bit over a month ago. At that speed they just don't move as much. Worth playing, but not anything special right now . . . but it does scratch the itch when needed.
Had a 10:27 this morning, check in was quick, friendly and informative, perfect. Got sent out by the friendly and once again informative starter a bit early. We played the Canyon/Vineyard combo. The course, although not plush green from wall to wall, played excellent, great lies on nice fairways with some run out. Rough was minimal but made you take notice. I wasn't in any bunkers but I could see they were firm but very playable and manicured. The greens were in excellent condition, firm but accepting of well struck shots, rolling very smooth, fast in spots, tricky to read, just excellent! Layout keeps you interested with some tough holes and nowhere you can coast . . . not overly difficult, but if you want to score well you need to pay attention. Course knowledge is a plus as there are some hidden features that you can't quite see from the tee. Recommended
Like the fellas said Ram's Hill is a treasure and an absolute pleasure to play. The extreme wind definitely added an interesting challenge and as was said made the course play very differently than when the ball isn't moving so much on land and in the air. You really had to adjust to the lengths (and lack thereof) the ball was traveling.
Great conditions, fun layout, great customer service and a nice oasis at the clubhouse/restaurant makes for a beautiful golf experience.
Thanks again to Donna and Willie . . . you'll see her beautiful smile if you scroll down on the Ram's Hill web page.
Gk Cup match vs Andrew with GKers Matt and Tim coming out to keep things civil. The course was in very playable shape, but nothing was outstanding. 3 weeks after maintenance and the place is recovering well with the greens a bit slow and bumpy still. Everything else seemed fine and just needs some water . . . run out on these fairways is not always a good thing!
Went off at 12:15 on a 12:10 tee time but POP was good (4.5 hrs) for a Sunday with all those in the know staying away from South until it heals from punching and were all lined up to play the North (wait list was 10 deep). Course is in good shape, everything is still hard and running fast (had 188 in on the par 5 9th for my second shot). As it was a bit later in the day the greens were a bit slow from bumps in spots but fast with roll out on others. Until they punch the North next month or at least for a couple more weeks North is the spot at Torrey.
Got out at 8:02 and finished at 12:30. The course is in nice condition, playing short (if you hit it in the fairways)and the greens are still hard (you can hear the thump when a ball comes down on them).
Fairways: nice to play from and running out a bit
Rough: mown down but still sticky and penal
Bunkers: a bit inconsistent in depth and texture but smooth
Greens: hard, mostly rolling smooth (some scruffy looking areas but still rolled well through them) and medium fast
POP: good at 4.5 hrs
Customer service: saw the snack cart a few times
A top quality, fun, solid course, most definitely recommended
As per Sal's latest review they are preparing for maintenance and the course was a bit rough around the edges and on some holes we played up from the White boxes. The greens were in great shape a bit firm but rolling nice, although they do seem slow after playing Torrey South, Torrey North and Golf Club of Ca in the last few weeks. They will be closed Tuesday and Wednesday for maintenance so maybe give it a couple weeks before expecting decent conditions.
First off twilight (2 pm now) on Sunday March 19th, got off a bit early and, although waiting to much for the constantly behind a hole group in front of us, finished in 4 1/2 hours. The course is in good shape, all over except the greens, it was twilight coming off some rain days so the po wasn't the smoothest I've seen. There were some bumpy, slow putts, some knocked off line, so it was hard getting them in the cup even from inside 3'. Also I don't remember any recent reviews mentioning the strange growth or fungus that seems to be invading the greens (unfortunately hole #4 green was closed with a temp green set up 70 yards short with just a flag and cup, no mowed down area, no circle, just a flag and cup. Strange and quite disappointing as there was no notice whatsoever concerning this condition). It was pin position #2 which involves some strange and difficult hole placements . . . front pins on 2,3,4 was a temp, 5 and 6. Then back pins on 9,11,12,13,14,15 and 17?
South is a big boy course even from the greens, 6628 73.1/133 with long holes, deep sticky rough, deep faced bunkers, large deceptive greens (what other tour course puzzles the pros as much as Torrey South?). It was slightly wet, cold, windy and glorious as usually (despite the temp on #4).
If I want an ego boost I play North, if I want to be humbled I play South.
Rare Saturday outing for me as I have to go be nice to people tomorrow, ugh. Course is in excellent shape and drained well from the rain. The rain did slow everything down except the greens . . . nothing seems to be able to do that yet! POP 5 hours, ugh.
First off twilight (12:30) finished just before 5. Course is in fine condition and POP was good.
Tees: small like always, a little beat up in spots but plenty playable
Fairways: very nice, a bit of roll out, great surface to hit from
Rough: a bit scarce, but I wasn't too far off the fairways today
Bunkers: very nice, manicured and full of good to play from sand
Greens: very nice, took shots well, rolled well, a bit slow IMHO, but the last three courses I played were all fast Golf Club of CA, Torrey South, Torrey North . . . so maybe about medium speed, but smooth and true
POP: was good at 4:20
Customer service: fine
Walkability: I walked with my push cart, some hills, but in this weather it was an easy walk
Everything was great except the POP, went off at 12:50 and didn't finish . . . well technically we finished, but played 17 and 18 in the dark. The greens are still rather hard and getting close to some of the pin locations is near impossible. They roll well and were fast, again not tournament lightening fast, but PDQ. Fairways nice, rough sticky and the bunkers had good sand, not totally consistent but always playable. I did need to clean up some unraked areas and I fixed quite a few ball marks on the greens . . . no ones fault but the players before me. Recommended as always. Torrey is paradise . . . just paradise was a bit sloooooooow today.
