The golf season is upon us, and now we can start thinking seriously about playing some golf and having some fun.


At Stevinson Ranch we have been through a lot this past 18 months In July 2013 our clubhouse burned to the ground Needless to say, it has been a turbulent time for the entire staff at the Ranch...

Lots of change here!

Well......I thought that this day would never arrive We haven't had a decent place to enjoy a cold beer here at Stevinson Ranch since July 25th of last year when our clubhouse burned down We have been working diligently since then to open a new "temporary" bar and restaurant...

It is that time of year again The AT&T begins this week in beautiful Pebble Beach Watching that tournament with the magnificent scenary certainly must get you fired up to play some golf...

Weather's been great......winter is coming!

Daylight savings is upon us That means that we have less time to play golf and we know that winter is around the corner In California we are all hoping for a wet winter, otherwise we are going to be in serious trouble...

Let's play more golf!

It's been awhile since my last blog I've been busy juggling fun and our insurance claim.

On the insurance side of life, we have finally gotten through the approval process with the folks at Merced County We are getting closer to having nice temporary facilities to operate out of...

One day at a time!

I wish that I could report great progress getting our temporary facilities up and running, however that is not the case If you've dealt with government agencies recently you will appreciate that common sense is not commonly used It doesn't seem to matter to Merced County that our business has been severely impacted and that we need help getting temporary trailers to help get us back on our feet...

Wow......what a month it has been I'm sure that by now most of you know that on July 25th we lost our clubhouse to a fire This past month I have learned more about insurance than I ever wanted to know...

Summer is here!

Today is the first day of summer It is a beautiful day here at Stevinson Ranch 87 degrees with a gentle breeze, a perfect day to be playing golf!

As many of you know, we have had a challenge with our greens this year...

Happy New Year

As we launch into 2013, I want to thank all of you who have supported Stevinson Ranch these past 17 years Can you believe that it has been 17 years since we opened back in 1995? Time flies when you are having fun!

We begin the new year with a new set of pricing for the course. Gone is our Players Club Card formerly known as Ranch Card In the Hey Day we sold about 1,200 of those cards, however sales have declined consistently over the past several years to a low of 250 this past year...

Merry Christmas

I suppose that it's time for a blog from Kelley's Corner, since the last blog I wrote was this past summer and now it's officially winter I apologize for not writing at all during the fall, however I'm not certain anyone reads this blog so there may not be any need for an apology.

This may be my last blog as this is supposedly the last day of the world Unfortunately I don't think we get off the hook that easily...

Summer's almost over!

Where has summer gone? Seems like yesterday that my son Griffin came home from the University of Colorado to join us working at Stevinson Ranch It was great having him home with us, however after 3 months together I think both mom and dad and Griffin are OK with his being back in Boulder It's funny when kids leave for college and experience independence for the first time and then return home to the old rules, both sides have a hard time adjusting...

Ernie and the A's

How about Ernie and the Oakland A's? I love both of these underdogs! Everyone has basically written off both of these former champions.

I do feel sorry for Adam Scott I hope that he recovers from this epic collapse Bogies on the last four holes to lose a major is tough pill to swallow.

I don't feel sorry for the New York Yankees for getting beat four games in a row by my beloved Oakland A's...

Oosthuizen's Ball

 OK, what happened the the famed "albatross" ball of Louis Oosthuizen that he tossed into the gallery surrounding the second hole at the Masters on Sunday? Well, as you have prbably seen or read, it was caught by Wayne Mitchell, 59, of New Tripoli, PA which is outside Allentown Vice-President of Air Products, Mitchell and his wife were tournament guests of an executive of Dow Chemical in Midland, MI Along the rope line, they had been seated at the par 5 second hole since 10:00 am, patiently waiting over four hours for the leaders to come through. 

After he caught the ball and placed it into his pocket, Mitchell was later escorted by security and Augusta National members to Butler Cabin where he met Billy Payne, Augusta National's Chairman...

I hope that this warm and sunny weather finds you in good spirits as you embark on a new year Personally I have never been more excited about the prospects here at Stevinson Ranch We have the Best Marketing/Sales team that we've ever assembled and I know that they are going to make a huge difference...

Good luck Rick!

 Many of you don't know that Rick Neuheisel and I are good friends and that my daughter Casey works for Ucla football This has been an emotional week for me as I know how much he cared about his team and how much he loved being the Ucla coach He is a Ucla alum and the most valuable player in the 1984 Rose Bowl...

I am hearing rumors that things are a mess in the US with our inept Congress not being able to compromise on anything meaningful causing the stock market to spin into an abyss I’m trying not to listen to the news because I am enjoying the trip of a lifetime with my family in Ireland My son Griffin, who many of you got to know this summer at the golf course, and I are here to play in the World Father/Son Championship at Waterville next week...

Golf is certainly alive and well in Ireland.

Considering that my family is originally from Galway, Ireland I particularly loved Darren Clarke’s victory in the Open Championship They must be doing something right on the Emerald Isle with four major championship winner’s in the last several years (Harrington, McDowell, McIlroy and Clarke).

 Four years ago I traveled to Ireland to play golf with some friends The fellow who organized the trip, Eoghan O’Connell played Walker Cup for GB & I in the late 1980′s and actually beat Mickelson in a singles match...
