We are always encouraged and most excited when we get comments from those that have played the course or experienced our facilities. Here are a few of our recent favorites:

I thoroughly enjoyed playing Stevinson Ranch.  I have been on numerous courses around the world and Stevinson Ranch GC has it all! It's challenging but fair, and really fun to play.  The Ranch is a hidden gem that you need to put on your list of courses to play.

Dear Ryan,

Just wanted to thank you and the Stevinson Staff for making our 2012 annual outing the best ever.  We are already counting the days until next year’s trip.

Thanks and best regards

Located at the opposite end of Stevinson's practice range, the Learning Center redefines golf instruction in the area. One of the trendiest devices is FlightScope's wireless unit, a serious upgrade to the standard-issue launch monitor. It measures everything — club head speed, ball-spin rate, ball speed, launch angle, club head position at impact, carry distance and total distance. From those numbers produce ideal club-fitting and more precise lessons…………

I believe that Stevinson Ranch is one of the best courses I have ever played! The last four holes will test any golfer of any level!! It is a great place for the Stanislaus Golf Team to play and practice to sharpen their skills for any tournament. With addition of the new learning center and current teaching staff, I believe this will really help Stevinson Ranch continue to be one of the top courses on the west coast!

I first played Stevinson Ranch not long after it opened in the late 1990’s and have been a regular visitor ever since. That’s saying a lot because I live on the SF Peninsula so for me to travel that far for a day of golf the course had better be special. And Stevinson Ranch certainly is just that.


From the second you set foot on the property you have the sense that your golf experience will be truly special. The staff is very friendly and the course conditions are typically some of the best I’ve played in California for a public course. The greens are about as fast and smooth as any I’ve ever played but still the course is very playable and enjoyable for all levels of play.

For the golfer who is looking for an amazing and relaxing golf experience combined with the challenge of a great layout and well maintained playing surfaces, Stevinson Ranch is the ticket! Did I mention that their very reasonable greens fees make it one of the best values in all of golf?? Stevinson Ranch is the type of course you will want to play over and over again.

I play anywhere from 3 to 7 rounds of golf per month at several different courses throughout the greater Bay Area and Northern California. For me, Stevinson Ranch is the place I choose to play most frequently. From the plush fairways to the manicured greens, Stevinson Ranch is just superb! The employees are always excited to see you and that really gives you a good feeling when you arrive. I urge all golfers to make the trip to Stevinson Ranch and see for themselves, what really makes this place special!

Hi Dave:

First I want to thank you for the exceptional golf school experience we all enjoyed last weekend. I think we all came away with exactly what we needed. I can’t think of a better golf learning experience for the four of us. I ran into our neighbors at the driving range today. I guess Ed played yesterday and had his best round ever – that’s pretty quick. Joyce had a tough time with her driver on the course today but she was excited with her new short-game skills. Both were impressed with the school, and thrilled to have had the opportunity to learn so much. They will be working hard to incorporate as much of the new information as they can, as will Kim and I. And then, we’ll all be back for more.

Great Course, Friendly staff, great food, and short drive or walk to on property cottages after evening libations in the bar..........My friends and I all like to play 36 each day, which equates to quite a few beers afterwards...........Once you've played Stevinson Ranch, you'll be hooked for life. They have a gem're like a member of the Stevinson Ranch family when you come to play or stay.

"Stevinson Ranch Golf Course represents the best value in golf on the West Coast. The Scottish Links style course will challenge players of all levels. The new Learning Center is top shelf and enhances what is already an amazing and dedicated professional staff."

The new Learning Center at Stevinson Ranch is a facility designed to target many areas of a golf swing through the use of a few separate cameras that offer alternate views. I have found it to be helpful by noticing areas I need to work on with my coach, Larry Mathews. The great part about this facility is that it gives golfers more knowledge about their swing than a typical lesson provides without the use of advanced technology.

Hello Jim,

My name is Jeff Neeley and I am on the Cal State Stanislaus golf team. I had recently received a fitting for my irons at the new facility located there, and had a great experience. It was definitely a game changing session that made me realize the importance of club fitting. The new golf academy is a great tool to utilize for any golfer, and has already impacted my game in a positive manner.

Stevinson Ranch is great course to call home. It offers players of different skill levels challenges at every turn. The new practice facility is quite an experience, and is a must see if you go out to the course.

I have been a member for over 12 years and Stevinson Ranch is in my top 5 favorite courses in the country. I have traveled the nation with my job and played all of the great sites and the Ranch is one of the best laid out and designed courses I have played. The friendly staff and the course conditioning is always above par. Everyone I bring out is always impressed and has a great time. Thumbs up!

I love Stevinson Ranch’s Tour-quality layout, where the greens can often run at 12-13 on the Stimpmeter and the closely-mown fairways are fast, firm and pure. I also love the practice area, where I could spend hours at the short-game area. And word is that the new state-of-the art golf school opening in 2012 will be one of the best in the West. But what I love most about Stevinson is that for all I just described, it’s anything but pretentious. If you’re not willing to laugh at your bad shots and relax and enjoy the excellent service, you’ve come to the wrong place. And for the cost of one round at Pebble Beach, you can play and stay in the low-key cozy Cottages at Stevinson for several days. Bring your friends!

Jim -

We recently held our company Sales Manager Meeting retreat at the Stevinson Ranch Golf Club.

The John Harbottle III, 18 hole Golf course, is great for players of all abilities, and our corporate team had a lot of fun playing this course. Their onsite golf shop accommodated our need for club rentals and carried a large variety of golf apparel. They have a great clubhouse that served us all of our hearty meals, and the event staff went the extra mile to make sure our needs were met in every way.  The meeting facility was suited to our needs and the Staff were very warm, friendly and hospitable.

I wanted to let you know how outstanding the golf package experience was last weekend  for myself and my three sons.  From the very beginning, Stevinson Ranch has been first class all the way. You and the staff  were always there for us whether it was in picking out the equipment package,  the choosing of lesson plans, or setting us up with a  great instructor.

Chris Christensen far exceeded all of our expectations. It was refreshing to have a trainer with significant life core skills other than just those in his area of instruction. He was very engaging and thorough in his approach. M  Keep up the good work.

Our group began utilizing Stevinson Ranch for our annual outing in May 2002.  We have totally enjoyed every year since.  The last 11 annual outings have been highlights for our attendees…….. The hospitality, great food, kindness, and positive attitude of your staff are just a few of the reasons we have kept coming back.  It is difficult to improve upon perfection and typifies Stevinson Ranch Golf Club……… you should be very proud of your staff for their friendliness and professionalism…….. you can be assured we will always highly recommend your facility.

It was such a pleasure to be greeted by your welcoming staff upon arrival, and again in the grill, in fact
everywhere I went and encountered staff they were more than courteous and welcoming.  I have not
stopped bragging to my friends and family about just how wonderful it was to get away at the ranch. 
And the course - the course looks like the "old" Stevinson that I remember - nice, lush fairways with well
kept greens that prove both receptive yet challenging at the same time.  I am already planning and looking
forward to my next Stevinson trip. 

Best Regards,

George it was a pleasure to make your acquaintence this past week while enjoying our 3 day - 4 round visit from Shorecliffs Men's Club in San Clemente, CA.  I wanted to personally thank you and your entire staff for your hospitality and service during our stay.  While I was was sad to here about your July fire, you have done a credible job restoring a unique 19th hole, which as you could see, our group very muchh enjoyed.  Hearing about your plans on the outdoor patio left me feeling you are well on your way to restoring the "Constitution of Fun."   We will make our plans for another visit shortly.  It was also nice to meet yur Marketing Director Jim.  Your entire staff does a fine job at providing a quality golf experience.


Thank you again
