"The award speaks to ClubCorp's well-deserved position as The World Leader in Private Clubs. On behalf of our 20,000 employee partners, I am humbled to be included with such a remarkable group of hospitality leaders."
As the Hall of Honor's 68th inductee, Affeldt joins the ranks of industry innovators and icons who represent the world's most successful and recognizable brands. He follows in the footsteps of his company's Founder and past Chairman Robert Dedman Sr., who was inducted in 2000.
ClubCorp owns or operates more than 200 clubs in the United States and abroad. At ClubCorp's helm since 2006, Affeldt is responsible for all aspects of the company's domestic and international operations, as well as its continued growth.
