Platinum status has been the most revered recognition in the private club industry since the franchise was established in 1997 by John R. Sibbald. Over the years, with input from the Club Leaders Forum Advisory Board, the Seven Selection Criteria have been updated to be relevant and adapt to changing times in the industry. Platinum status is awarded in five categories: Country Clubs, Golf, City, Athletic and Yacht Clubs.
