Florida Club Achieves Highest Honor and Place Among Prestigious Clubs
Naples, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/19/2016 -- The Club at Mediterra announced today that it has been awarded the prestigious Distinguished Emerald Club of the World award, as determined by the annual Distinguished Clubs of the World award program conducted by BoardRoom magazine, one of the most respected trade publications serving private clubs.
Boardroom magazine developed the award program to help vitalize and preserve the institution of private clubs by fostering a ceaseless drive to ever improve the "Member Experience" provided by private clubs throughout the world. Distinguished Gold Club status will be awarded to those private clubs that are within the top 6 percent of all clubs, and those within the top 4 percent will be awarded Distinguished Emerald Club status.
Mediterra offers an array of lifestyle amenities, including The Club at Mediterra, featuring 36 holes of Tom Fazio golf, a Championship Tennis Program, Sports Club, Tavern on 18 and the private 10,000-square-foot Beach Club on the Gulf of Mexico, featuring an elevated swimming pool, casual dining with a full bar and cabana service for beach chairs, umbrellas and light fare menus. The living community features single-family estate homes and single-family maintenance-free villas and coach homes.
To be a Distinguished Emerald Club, a club must provide a level of Member Experience attained by only the finest clubs in the world. The distinction between a Distinguished Gold Club and a Distinguished Emerald Club is nuanced yet thoroughly recognizable, for it is based on the most important of all intangible qualities. Reputation. Reverence. Admiration. Brand Equity. Fame. Whatever you call it, it is that "X" factor that separates two clubs that both provide superlative Member Experience, but where one is a great club, while the other is the most prestigious of memberships.
"We'd like to congratulate The Club at Mediterra for earning Distinguished Emerald Club status," said John Fornaro, Publisher of BoardRoom magazine, "Special recognition also goes out to the General Manger of the Club at Mediterra, Carmen Mauceri and the Director of Marketing and Membership, Max Passino, as well as the Club's Board President Mike Cowhig and all the board of directors, committee chairs, department heads, and the entire staff for their efforts in providing an excellent member experience."
