Premier Residential Golf Community Earns Fourth Consecutive Platinum Club Award.

Colleton River Plantation Club has received its fourth consecutive Platinum Club of America designation, and is ranked among the Top 4% Private Clubs in the country by Club Leaders Forum. This prestigious recognition is based on five aspects of private clubs: quality of membership, tradition and culture, amenities, governance, and quality of management and staff. Colleton River Plantation Club was one of only two clubs in South Carolina to be included on the distinguished list of Top Private Clubs.

The Platinum Clubs of America rankings are determined by questionnaires sent to club managers and presidents of approximately 5,000 private clubs belonging to the Club Managers Association of America (CMAA). This is the seventh compilation of The Platinum Clubs of America, which is conducted every three years. In addition to residential communities, other categories of club recognition include: country clubs, golf, city/dining, athletic, and yacht.

"We are extremely honored to be ranked in the Top Private Clubs in America this year," said Tim Bakels, COO / General Manager of Colleton River Plantation Club. "Our Board members, management team, and entire staff strive to make Colleton an exceptional place to live. It’s our attitude of “family serving family” that has earned the Club its fourth consecutive Platinum Club of America designation."
