Playing the GK Plays out at Rams Hill on 12/8. I absolutely love the setting at Rams Hill and it seems every time I play there I find something else that's pretty cool (the room we met in after was great and then there's a little patio area off the driving range over looking the creek/waterfall behind 18). Although the conditions were pretty blustery when we got there, I really loved it. I guess I'm strange that I prefer playing in conditions like that. It just lends itself to being a bit more creative I guess.
As always, every staff member I came across was super friendly, attentive and a pleasure to work with. Rams Hill always has fantastic customer service and it wasn't any different this time around. On top of that they have a nice GPS on the carts which maps the holes and allows you to get exact yardages to hazards, landing areas, etc. This really helps with the strategy of the course so that is a nice feature.
This is the second time I have played Rams Hill right after a rain storm and this time it seemed to be the most "soggy" I have played it. That being said, I think the overall condition of the course is really good. I did happen to have some pretty wet lies (it seemed most were around the greens), but I don't recall ever having it cause too much trouble. The greens were way softer than I can ever remember and with the prevailing wind yesterday, that course played LONG!
It seems to me that our current weather patterns are about 3 months behind where they traditionally are so the overseeding and overall condition of the course felt "young". I think with a bit more time, some sunshine and hopefully higher temps out there the course starts to fill in a bit. Maybe they will end up keeping the course open later in the year too, as June seems to be a bit cooler too :)
Anyway, love the layout here, the course is going to be in prime condition in the next few weeks and I had a great time with the whole GK crew. Definitely an experience out at Rams Hill and I'd always recommend it.» Close
