Platinum Clubs® of Europe & Middle East License 2024-2025
A Legacy of Excellence: Founded over 25 years ago, the Platinum Clubs of America is the pinnacle of recognition for private Clubs located in the United States. The organization has evolved with the introduction of Platinum Clubs of the World in 2011 and, subsequently, the Asia-Pacific and Europe categories in 2019. This year, Clubs in the Middle East were included in the European region.
The election process for Platinum Clubs is conducted by an esteemed international Voting Panel, evaluating Clubs based on the Seven Selection Criteria. This transparent and rigorous process ensures that only the top 1% of Clubs worldwide achieve this honor.
Your Club has been honored as a Platinum Club of Europe & Middle East for 2024-2025, granting you the opportunity to participate in the Platinum Clubs of Europe & Middle East Licence Program. The benefits of this prestigious recognition are highlighted below for the Club, its Leadership, Members, Management, and Staff.
