Golf Inc. Magazine recently named ClubCorp’s President and CEO Eric Affeldt the most powerful person in golf.

The magazine compiles the list annually based on the influence of the individual and their organization to positively impact the golf industry. Affeldt, who joined ClubCorp in 2006, jumped to the top spot from No. 4 last year.

The magazine cited Affeldt’s aggressive business attitude, Dallas-based ClubCorp’s current position to grow and add properties, the company’s portfolio, and its access to capital.

“Eric has re-energized ClubCorp and has his eyes set on new course acquisitions at a time when most golf course owners, especially private clubs, are retreating,” said Jack Crittenden, Golf Inc. editor-in-chief, in a written statement. “His attitude, more than anything, creates opportunities and should open doors for the world’s largest golf course owner.”
