ClubCorp CEO Eric Affeldt Named Golf Inc.’s Most Powerful Person in Golf for Second Consecutive Year
Eric Affeldt, ClubCorp President and CEO, was named No. 1 on Golf Inc. magazine’s “Most Powerful People in Golf” list for the second year in a row. This prestigious list contains only 30 people across the entire golf industry, and is frequently dominated by golf course operators. The list also includes Jack Nicklaus (No. 3), Tim Finchem, Commissioner of the PGA Tour (No. 4), Mike McCarley, President of the Golf Channel (No. 8), Donald Trump (No. 11) and professional golfer Jordan Spieth (No. 18).
This is the third time Eric has topped the list – he was also ranked No. 1 in 2010 – which is based on the influence of an individual and their organization to positively impact the golf industry.
Congratulations to Eric and to the entire ClubCorp family. The Employee Partners’ hard work and dedication to Building Relationships and Enriching Lives have helped ClubCorp stay on top in the industry.
