RYAN SHEFFER – Director of Golf
Ryan became a member of our Ranch Family back in 2011. Prior to taking on his role as Director, Ryan held the position of Lead Golf Instructor & 1st Assistant Golf Professional at The Ranch, where he played a major role in the development and success of our Academy. Ryan brings over a decade of experience in the industry and a wealth of knowledge, as well as a strong enthusiasm for increasing guest and visitors’ enjoyment of the game. Ryan’s goal is to see that Ben Brown’s provides an unrivaled experience to all our guests; and to earn the ranking of the BEST 9-Hole Golf Course in the Country!

Golf has always been a passion for Ryan, as he started playing the game at the young age of 3. As a junior, Ryan was ranked as one of the top players in the country by Golfweek Magazine. He went on to play collegiate golf at Notre Dame de Namur University, where he graduated with High Honors with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management. As an Instructor, Ryan has studied under the tutelage of Brad Brewer, PGA Top 100 Teacher, and Zach Heusser, Golf Digest Top 20 Teachers in California. Ryan’s mantra is that, “People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care!”
