Rams Hill Golf Club was originally designed by legendary golf course architect Tom Fazio, operating for several decades before it closed due to the 2009 financial crisis in the United States. For half a decade, the course laid vacant and had begun to be reclaimed by the desert, but in 2014, it was extensively renovated and reopened to the public as a modern, sustainable facility powered by a 3.5-acre solar farm and bio-retention basins. The new course has won a number of international golf awards, including top 25 course rankings from Golf Advisor and TripAdvisor. Visitors can enjoy the course's 18 majestic holes, which traverse beautiful desert regions that are home to red tail hawks, frogs, and coyotes. Stay and play packages are offered at the course's House on the Hill rental home, which sleeps up to eight guests per night. The course is also home to the elegant fine dining establishment Rams Hill Restaurant, which offers farm-to-table fare prepared by executive chef Jeremy Manley.
