About Platinum Clubs of the World
Platinum Clubs® of the World accept applications from Clubs around the World as well as recommendations from the Panel to appear on a Preliminary Ballot. This Ballot is sent out to the Panel for review in advance of the vote which takes place every two years (odd years). The Panel then has the opportunity to recommend additions or deletions in assembling the Final Ballot. Only Private Golf, Country and City Clubs are eligible for consideration for Platinum Clubs of the World status.
After receiving recommendations from the Panel, Club Leaders Forum distributes the Final Ballot. Panel Members are asked to vote for each Club on the Ballot that they have visited, considering the Platinum Clubs of the World Six Selection Criteria, as approved by the Club Leaders Forum Advisory Board. The Panel may amend their vote as many times as they wish during the 30-day voting period.
The vote is conducted electronically and confidentially through a third party. Points are awarded by the position and ranking that the Panelist assigns to each Club. The total number of points is calculated and divided by the total number of Panelists who have visited a Club to determine the final points score.
