Eight Clubs Receive America’s Greatest Private Clubs Awards in Q1 2023

Mar 24, 2023

America’s Greatest Private Clubs names eight clubs as the first in the nation to be recognized for achieving the CMAA 5 Foundations of Excellence. On behalf of Club Managers Group, I am pleased to recognize our Q1 list of well-qualified private clubs as some of America’s Greatest Private Clubs.” — Craig D. Martin, CCM PALM BEACH, FL, USA, March 24, 2023/ / -- America’s Greatest Private Clubs names eight clubs as the first in the nation to be recognized: BallenIsles Country Club, Palm Beach Gardens, FL; Emerald Dunes Club, West Palm Beach, FL; High Ridge Country Club, Lantana, FL; The Country Club at Mirasol, Palm Beach Gardens, FL; Quail Valley Golf Club, Vero Beach, FL; RedStick Golf Club, Vero Beach, FL; Sebonack Golf Club, Southampton, NY; and Spring Island Club, Beaufort, SC. Each of these clubs is highly rated when measured against industry-accepted merit standards, including key rating factors, and on-site and written evaluations: all void of perceived influences based on individual professional staff or board achievements. Year after year these five industry standards are the hallmark of the Club Managers Association of America education and training programs. Private country clubs are solely rated on the 5 Foundations of Excellence which require sound governance practices by both the board and leadership as they collaborate to support and maintain the brand and mission: • Facilities providing a distinguished standard of excellence in décor and maintenance. • Leaders recognized with proven stability in delivering unwavering brand promise to their members. • Consistent and extraordinary operations service execution. • Industry recognition for traditions and innovation in setting club industry trends. • Team culture inspired by pride resulting in a driven and relentless pursuit of excellence and success. Craig D. Martin, CCM and founder of Club Managers Group shared, “Club Managers Group created America’s Greatest Private Clubs program to recognize and reward those private clubs across America who routinely achieve the 5 Foundations of Excellence but go unrecognized for a variety of industry politics. Today we are pleased to recognize our Q1 list of well-qualified private clubs as some of America’s Greatest Private Clubs.” “Each of these private clubs was personally visited, and meetings were held with the general manager, department heads, line staff and members. These private clubs were also rated on facility décor and maintenance.” Martin adds, “America’s Greatest Private Clubs award is focused on creating an equitable recognition program for clubs to be evaluated based solely on their merits.” America’s Greatest Private Club evaluators consist of a volunteer panel of current and former private club general managers and other top Leaders from private clubs. The panel is provided with specific criteria, rating parameters and a detailed evaluation form to aid in the assessment process. These ratings are used to compare qualifying private clubs against their regional peers to create a fair analysis and rating platform focused solely on the 5 Foundations of Excellence.
