RECOGNIZING EXCELLENCE IN PRIVATE CLUBS AROUND THE GLOBE
presented by Club Leaders Forum
The Club Leaders Forum Advisory Board and staff are proud to present the results of the 2024-2025 Platinum Clubs® of the World, Platinum Clubs of Asia-Pacific, and Platinum Clubs of Europe & Middle East election. The Platinum Clubs and Honorable Mentions were determined through a transparent and confidential voting process, with the results certified as true and correct. Clubs recognized with Platinum Status represent the most outstanding private clubs in the world.
The esteemed international Voting Panel, consisting of industry experts and private club connoisseurs from 22 countries, is appointed by the Advisory Board. This panel applies the Seven Selection Criteria, forming the benchmark of excellence for private clubs. These criteria, embraced by the world's finest clubs, serve as the foundational principles and guiding philosophy of their operations. They embody the essence of best practices, ensuring recognition only for the most exceptional establishments committed to excellence.
A proprietary points system is utilized to establish the results. Panelists rank each club, which determines the number of points the club receives. The total number of points is divided by the number of panelists who voted for the club to determine the final ranking.
Acknowledgment as one of the Top 1% of all private clubs around the globe is a remarkable achievement that deserves and commands the respect of all in the private club world.
