Stevinson Ranch Golf Club selected most outstanding premium daily fee facility by the National Golf Foundation

Stevinson Ranch Golf Club has been recognized as the nation's highest rated golf course in the Premium Daily Fee category based on customer loyalty from the NGF (National Golf Foundation). The NGF presented the 3rd annual Customer Loyalty Awards to golf facilities that received high approval ratings from their customers in various operational segments. The awards were presented last month at the Professional Golf of America (PGA) Merchandise Show in Orlando, Fla.

“We are very pleased to receive this prestigious award because it is based completely on our customers experiences, and that is what Stevinson Ranch is about…Great Golf Experiences,” stated George Kelley, Stevinson Ranch founder.

The Customer Loyalty Awards are based on surveys fielded through NGF's CLASPTM (Customer Loyalty and Satisfaction Program) in 2004. As part of this program, customers rate their satisfaction with facility amenities, course conditions, service and value.

“Golfer loyalty is critical to the long-term success of facilities, and CLASPTM provides the focused insight on operations that can positively affect a course's performance,” said Andy Allen, NGF's membership director. “The awards are based completely on consumer response. The winners of these awards should be applauded for being recognized by their most important audience: their customers.” Winners were selected from the more than 400 courses participating in CLASPTM, which now has over 100,000 surveys in the system.

NGF presented awards in three categories, each containing an overall winner and nine runners-up. The overall winner for the 2004 CLASPTM Awards in the Premium Daily Fee category is Stevinson Ranch Golf Club in Stevinson, Calif. In the Daily Fee and Municipal Facility categories, the winners are Rock Creek Golf Club in Fairhope, Ala., and Harbor Links Golf Course in Port Washington, N.Y., respectively.
