The Ranch Golf Club has gone through many changes and challenges, but Carrell and Whitney have helped it turn around. They are both great individuals to work with and I enjoyed visiting with them every time we had to go over the wedding plans. They work hard to get to know their clients and makes sure everything their client wants is correct on paper. Carrell is very detailed oriented and I just love that about her. As a wedding coordinator, she does what she needs to do to help reduce the stress for the couple.

Until the day of our wedding, Carrell made sure everything was correct. She communicated through email me and called me to make sure I wouldn't forget anything. I am the type of person who wants everything to be perfect and so I provided very detailed documents stating what needs to go where and when things can be available (e.g. candy bar). She kept all the documents and made sure things went as planned.

I can go on and on about Carrell. Overall, she did a wonderful job and I would recommend The Ranch Golf Club as long as she is the wedding coordinator. I also want to say that all the staff at the Golf Club were very friendly.

My husband suggested we visit the Ranch right a couple months after our engagement. We walked in and i was impressed immediately. The weather was beautiful, the stairway before you walk down the aisle was breathtaking, the scenery was perfect, and the coordinator, Chrissy was amazing. I was sold at first sight :-)

Unfortunately it rained on our wedding day, but i was so thrilled with the way our designer set up the reception indoors (Asiel Design).. it looked STUNNING! I was happy with every aspect of our wedding, from the food, to the DJ, to the photographer, and the venue.. I would highly recommend The Ranch Golf Club.

Chrissy, the coordinator, was FANTASTIC!!! She was always efficient, friendly, understanding, compassionate, and warm. She was always available and helpful.

I definitely give The Ranch 5 stars!! My husband and I had our wedding ceremony and our reception at this location toward the end of August this year and it was amazing! After we got engaged the wedding venue search began. In one day we visited 14 venues. The Ranch was our 14th stop however we weren't able to get an appt for that day. I had seen it online and in bridal magazines so I wanted to at least drive by and check it out. Just driving by and seeing the grounds, I had a strong feeling this would be the place. Luckily the following week we got an appt to view the entire location. My husband and I walked in and we just knew right away it was the place. We definitely got that feeling! :) 2 days later we put down our deposit and booked our wedding date!! :)

One suggestion, if you are interested in The Ranch, make an appt asap and go check it out becasue dates do fill up quickly there. We originally wanted a Saturday wedding at the end of June but had to settle for end of August. No big deal to us, but you may have to book your event more than year in advance.

The Ranch has a very Tuscan design feel and the colors are a lot of warm colors and neutral colors...so a lot of browns, tans, etc. Which I love, as those colors were in our wedding color palette. :) The entire venue is just so rich looking and so sophisticated. The carpet in the reception room is so nice too. You will not see a funky 1970's or 1980's bright multi-color carpet which I noticed at many hotels in the area. The reception room on its own is so awesome as far as the space and design. You won't even need to add anything or take anything away. We had 15 guest tables plus the head table with centerpieces and decor on each table and the whole room just came together and looked fabulous.

The food and alcohol packages that The Ranch offers are very reasonable compared to some venues and also considering this venue looks like a million bucks. :) The food was so delicious too! We had 5 passed Hors d'oeuvres for cocktail hour that everyone said were so good and then for dinner we served lobster tail, filet mignon and a vegetarian lasagna. It was great! :) When we went to the tasting to choose our entree choices, we had a tough decision becasue it was all so yummy.

Also, Chrissy Wolfman, catering manager and coordinator for The Ranch, is absolutely AWESOME!!! She is the best! From the beginning Chrissy worked closely with us on every aspect of the wedding. She was always easy to contact whether it was by phone, email or an in person appt. She has such a wonderful personality and you can tell she really enjoys what she does. She made our wedding turn out exactly how I had imagined and so much more! She kept me on track and worked with me to make my dream wedding come to life! :) She made sure everything was planned and set so that our wedding would be just perfect. We are both super organized so that also helped a lot. We definitely had a great experience with Chrissy!!

We had 130 people at our wedding and everyone has told us nothing but great things about The Ranch. We definitely wowed our guests. :) You can't go wrong with the views when you are here. Whether it is during the ceremony, reception or on your drive in, you will see nothing but beautiful homes, rolling hills and a breathtaking view of the whole Bay Area. Our wedding pictures are amazing! I just love everything about The Ranch and am so glad it was our wedding venue! :)

Overall, I am so satisfied with the staff and the service we received. Our wedding went on smoothly without a hitch and every thing was just perfect that day! There are a ton of great venues out there but to us, nothing compares to The Ranch!

Stop by for a visit and you will see for yourself why The Ranch is a GREAT venue!!!

This is my long overdue review of the Ranch Golf Club. And I'm not giving 5 stars just because I got married here. Before we got married, we searched over 30 venues ranging from San Francisco to Livermore. Lots of great venues but nothing as fitting and beautiful as the Ranch. Our criteria was an outdoor ceremony with the banquet hall within the same area. We wanted an awesome backdrop with fabulous weather. We wanted easy access for guests so they don't have to drive through a forest to get to the venue. The Ranch fulfilled all our requirements. We couldn't be more happy and we're glad that we reserved our date more than a year in advance. You most definitely need to reserve the Ranch more than a year in advance as they get booked up super fast and early!

As for the services and the planner Chrissy, we couldn't any happier. Frankly, we were quite surprised how well mannered and professional everyone is because we've experienced some really bad services and planners at other weddings at other venues. Great job Chrissy and team!

As for the food, it's really good! We had the choice of filet mignon and salmon for our wedding menu and both are excellent. We especially love the salmon as it was nice and tender, not overcooked. The sauce on it was just right, not too salty or overwhelming. Portion is surprisingly large which is great! We choose the butter lettuce salad and loved it. The walnuts and dressing compliments the salad perfectly.

And finally, our wedding day was perfect. Chrissy and team made sure everything was planned beforehand to following through with all the tasks on the day of. There were zero problems (that we knew of) which is good.

Overall, I would highly recommend anyone considering this venue to get married. Don't think and get your date locked in!

My husband and I just had our wedding at The Ranch this past weekend and everything was fabulous. The location makes for beautiful pictures, especially of the bridal party making their entrance down the stairs.
The food was excellent and many of our guests commented on how delicious and warm their food was. The big hit of the night was the filet mignon! The wait staff were very attentive and efficient, making for a very smooth evening.
Also, a big plus to this venue is Chrissy Wolfman the event site coordinator. She is extremely helpful with any questions you have and is very experienced in wedding planning. I always felt confident asking her for advice and trusted any input she had. Chrissy was very prompt in responding to emails or phone calls, and was a breath of fresh air the day of the wedding. I knew she would solve any problem we might encounter that day :)
Thank you for an amazing and memorable day!!!

Chrissy took care of all the details, so we were able to completely enjoy the event. Not only is The Ranch a BEAUTIFUL venue, but the food was delicious and the service was fantastic. There were 250 guests and everyone was served promptly. We continue to hear from guests about how impressed they were with the food and service. We are so thankful to Chrissy and all the staff that help to make this day so special.

I have to say, hands down I am so pleased with the way EVERYTHING turned out at The Ranch for my September 4, 2010 wedding. Satra, the on-site wedding coordinator is Amazing! She's so helpful throughout the stressful planning process, sends you constant reminders of what you need to get done and how much time you have. She's responsible for sending out all receipts as soon as payment is received. She definitely doesn't waste any of your time and if VERY accommodating. Not only is the view beautiful and speaks for itself, but the wait staff if very attentive and we received many compliments regarding their service and promptness. The food was excellent, a must try is the spinach salad.

My husband and I are eternally grateful for the staff at The Ranch and Satra for all their hard work! They made our wedding an absolute success!

A review of The Ranch as a wedding reception venue

My wife and I celebrated our wedding reception at The Ranch Golf Course on August 7th. We both agree the Ranch is definitely as good as it gets. I would give it more than 5 stars if that were an option. The Ranch sits on top of a hill surrounded by nicely groomed golf course and a very beautiful community of homes. The golf club is fairly new and has a modern look to its building structure. The building has a spacious patio area and a nice view of the golf course. The best part of the patio area is the beautiful view of the city lights at night. The lobby is a cool place to lounge and the restrooms are very comfortable and clean. The wedding packages are awesome. They even include the cake, linens, and chivari chairs, ect. We got a package with 5 hours of open bar and was well worth it. The bartenders pour heavy so be prepared to drink! Last but not least, the best part of the venue is it's wonderful coordinator Satra Zharghami. Satra has outstanding customer service skills! She's very easy to work with, very patient, prompt in all her responses and good person in general! She's cool, you will like her...We met with a lot of venue coordinators searching for the perfect venue but no one like Satra
