The Sanctuary Golf Club on Sanibel was awarded the prestigious Platinum Clubs of America award by John Sibbald, publisher of the Club Leaders Forum and president of the Platinum Clubs of America, as one of the Top 10 residential club communities in the country.
The Platinum Clubs are the most highly regarded private clubs in the United States as voted by the club managers and board presidents from more than 6,000 private clubs across the country. Every three years, the Platinum Clubs survey every club belonging to the Club Managers Association of America (CMAA) and are asked to consider five critical categories: quality of membership, tradition and culture, amenities, governance, and quality of management and staff.
Sibbald summed up the award best when he recently said, "Earning the recognition as a Platinum Club is notable for two main reasons: every club wants to believe their club is the best in the area in which they reside and more importantly new members are always attracted to the best clubs."
Since opening in 1993, The Sanctuary Golf Club has been considered in the area to be among the very best in the state of Florida.
