This venue is gorgeous, no doubt, but the company that runs this venue is an absolute nightmare. I went through 3 coordinators in 7 months and all the rules changed each time, the information I had previously provided each time had magically disappeared, we were not offered any discount or apologies for any of the countless hours and time we had to put into tracking down someone to talk to and help us each time. If you use this venue, you absolutely MUST have a coordinator that you hire separately. Their staff is incompetent, unprofessional and unreliable. My wedding planning experience was dreadful because of this place.

This venue is by far gorgeous! The food provided was delicious! Here's where the venue went DOWN HILL for me: After the ceremony, I realized our gift card box was gone and was not in the foyer where it was originally placed. I figured the staff moved it, NOPE. Towards the end of our reception, I found some of our wedding card gifts on our sweetheart table which I thought was kind of odd but figured it was gifts given to us directly throughout the night. It wasn't until after the reception my husband, my family, my bridesmaids, and I all went looking for the box but it was NO WHERE to be found. I figured it was placed inside the wedding coordinator's office and figured I'd get it the next day. I returned the next day to pick up all our things and still could not find our wedding gift card box or any of the envelopes that were inside. I called the wedding coordinator who THEN informed me that she did see the wedding gift box go missing after the ceremony but did not tell anyone. She then guaranteed me that none of her staff moved it or touched it. I decided to go walk around the venue to see if maybe I could locate the box. In the foyer, I located our wedding gift card box on a random table, opened, with no envelopes inside. I called the wedding coordinator who then informed me she did not know anything about it and there was nothing they could do. A few days after our wedding, I was asked by our guests if we had received their gifts. I was COMPLETELY embarrassed to tell them their generous gift was STOLEN from our wedding venue and the venue informed me there was NOTHING they could do. They didn't even offer to look, or ask their staff because they GUARANTEED me their staff did not take it. I was EXTREMELY disappointed in the handling of this unfortunate event and the lack of professionalism demonstrated by the wedding coordinator.

NICOLE IS AWESOME!!! When we went to the ranch to look for our wedding venue I had a feeling it was going to be out of our price range! We had a large guest list (296 people), but not only were the able to accommodate, but we fell in love!!! The place is beautiful, the coordinator is awesome and the chef does amazing work!! We got so many compliments on the food (we had a taco bar)! They accommodated our want for the taco bar and went above and beyond to make our wedding day amazing. We had close to 250 guests attend (which was a little crowded for the room), but they made it work perfectly. Honestly the only complaint I had was for the bar tender, she was very rude to the guests and also pretty slow and selective for the people she helped. As the bride I never went up to the bar so it didn't bother me, but my guests didn't seem to like her very much!

The Ranch Golf Club is elegant and beautiful. I had my ceremony and reception there, and was pleased with how everything turned out. The staff is friendly and helpful, and they provided me with 2 day of coordinators to assist on the day of (which of course was very helpful).
The Ranch Golf Club responded with the following comments:
Hi Tiffany, Thanks so much for the kind words! We enjoyed every second of your special day! Best wishes to you both!

I had my ceremony and reception at The Ranch and all my guests raved about how beautiful it was. It has a beautiful backdrop, the reception area is already beautiful so you don't have to decorate it that much, and the staff were helpful. The only gripe I have is that the wedding coordinators were new and didn't really seem as experienced so we felt like we really had to take over and make sure everything went smoothly. They were very nice, but felt they weren't as knowledgable about everything. If I could do it all over again, I would still have my wedding at The Ranch, but would hire a day of coordinator instead.

I had my Sunday afternoon wedding ceremony at the Ranch. Shortly after we signed our contract, I began to regret my decision: I signed a credit card authorization form for our deposit of $500, then I checked my statement & saw that they actually charged me DOUBLE. Not only is this illegal, Amanda was completely unresponsive for days. My wedding coordinator & I both contacted her via email & phone several times. It took a week before she indirectly told us we'd been refunded (no apology whatsoever). She even responded to other questions without addressing the issue! There wasn't much we could do, so we just got over it. Then, on the day of: 1. The bridal suite had very dirty carpet. Not the best thing when you have an expensive dress with a long train that needs to be photographed. 2. The chalkboard in the bridal suite had ANOTHER COUPLE'S NAME ON IT from the prior day's wedding. Way to make us feel special. 3. The bridal suite had no dedicated restroom. We had to cross over the courtyard and use the restroom in the main building where all of our guests were. 4. My photographer told me the day of that bridal parties were no longer allowed to use the public patio at Hassler & Silver Creek Valley Rd for photos. (I forget the reason, though this area may or may not belong to the Golf Club.) As a result, the only place we could take pre-ceremony photos was in the courtyard or in front of the parking lot, where all our guests were gawking & passing by to get to the ceremony. 5. We were shooed off the 18th hole (where we were told we COULD take photos) by golfers passing through. We literally had <5 minutes there before we had to leave. Overall, while we had a great ceremony, very little of that was thanks to the Ranch. We did successfully get married. However, it fell far below our expectations for the price paid. Finally, despite our repeated requests, Amanda NEVER used "reply all" in her email communication w me and my coordinator. Very frustrating.

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.
The Ranch Golf Club responded with the following comments:
Oh my goodness Chan Chan...I am flattered beyond belief. You and Duy were a dream to work with and I was privileged to have had the opportunity to get to know you both and work with you to make sure your wedding day was perfect. Thank you again for you kind words. Carrell

Their customer service is poor to nonexistent! I was switched from four different coordinators and kept having to repeat myself because there was no proper recordkeeping. Food was not as good as it was during the tasting. The filet mignon was tasteless and the sides I loved during the tasting were changed to something else entirely without my knowledge. There was a hair in one of my guest's salad and was told there was no more salad in the kitchen left to replace it! Ridiculous!!! Cake topper was thrown away too. Poor customer service. I expect more when I spend 35k on a venue. I left some stuff in their locked dressing room. On Tuesday when I came to pick up my stuff, my bag with my gold necklace was gone! Someone had stolen or thrown it away. I was referred to Kristy Parks the general manager. She said she would call me back after investigating. Two weeks later I had to call HER back. She promised to call me back again. One month later I still had not heard from her and her voicemail box was full. I emailed my wedding coordinator to find out my coordinator was again replaced by someone new! After this I emailed back and forth with this person. Kristy Parks never called me again or apologized. They insinuated that someone in my party had stolen it and that they were not responsible. I have been waiting for the contact info for Kristy's boss to file a formal complaint against her but no one seems to have that number. All I wanted was to feel like someone there cared. Maybe offer a free lunch or a free golf game just to make up for my inconvenience. But I was treated like crap and felt like I was some cheap beggar who wanted to make a quick buck. After they took my money, they didn't care at all that an item of mine was stolen or thrown away. No one else had access to that room but them. For the money that I spent I was treated so poorly. Disgusted and utterly disappointed at the staff at this beautiful venue.

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.

The Ranch Golf Club is highly recommended to those looking for a picturesque wedding venue with outstanding service! Chrissy Wolfman's detailed planning, vision, and communication with all wedding preparations was seamless, resulting in an incredible night. Our family members and friends were in awe of The Ranch; the amazing view, the delicious cuisine, and the impeccable way in which Chrissy collaborated with all of our vendors. Since our reception was held in the evening, our guests were in awe of the gorgeous city lights twinkling below the candle-lit dining area; it really feels as though you're floating! Also, we especially loved the opportunity to see the dining room before our guests came in from the cocktail hour- what a great touch! My husband and I knew our wedding reception would be beautiful; however, our expectations were far surpassed, thanks to Chrissy's dedication and attention to detail. Her expert advice and energetic personality made the planning process so much fun! The Ranch Golf Club was everything we hoped it would be and much more!
