WAC wins 9th Platinum Club award

Washington Athletic Club named top-5 club in America

Platinum Club logoThe Washington Athletic Club received its ninth consecutive 5 Star Platinum Club of America award this week. The award recognizes the WAC as one of the top five athletic clubs in the country. “This is a great honor and a great testament to our club and our membership,” WAC President & CEO Chuck Nelson says. “The WAC is a premier club. The Platinum Club award reflects our approach of constantly seeking ways to improve our facility, services, and member value.”

Platinum Clubs are judged based on their amenities and facilities, staff and service, quality of membership, governance and fiscal management, and overall experience. Only the top 5 percent of private clubs in America earn Platinum status.

From its earliest days, the WAC has been recognized for providing one of the best private club experiences in the country. The club maintains its commitment to enriching members’ quality of life, supporting amateur athletic achievement, and preserving its historic Clubhouse, listed on the National Register of Historic places.

The Platinum Club of America awards are voted on by over 3,000 club general managers and presidents. The awards are given out biennially. The WAC has earned 5 Star Platinum status at every occurrence since the award’s inception in 1997. The Platinum Club rankings are the most respected listing in the private club industry.
