Top 100 Platinum City Clubs of the World 2018-19

Platinum Clubs of the World 2018-2019

Platinum Club status is the pinnacle of recognition for private clubs around the world. Acknowledgement as a Platinum Club is the most revered in the private club industry.

The results for the Platinum Clubs® of the World 2018-19 election, conducted by Club Leaders Forum every two years, are official. Platinum Clubs excel in best practices and represent the standard of Excellence for the finest private Golf & Country Clubs and City Clubs around the globe. The Top 100 Golf & Country Clubs and Top 100 City Clubs are elected by an international Panel of experts, historians and connoisseurs in a confidential ballot and that is certified as true and correct.

The inaugural election of City Clubs to Platinum Clubs of the World revealed a very strong International presence. Only 29 of the Top 100 elected Platinum are from the United States; 22 Clubs are located in Continental Europe; 15 Clubs represent Asia; 13 from Great Britain and Ireland; and Canada rounded out this year’s list with a very respectable 9 Clubs in the Top 100. The list is a true representation of the world with 34 countries represented.

The 75 Honorable Mention recipients in both the Golf & Country Club and the City Club categories narrowly missed earning Platinum Club status this year. These clubs are encouraged to observe the Selection Criteria, welcome Panelists to visit their clubs and set a goal of Platinum recognition in 2020.
