Every three years, the Platinum Clubs of America surveys over 5,000 private clubs belonging to the Club Managers Association of America (CMAA). It then ranks them based on quality of membership, tradition and culture, amenities, governance, and quality of management and staff. Voting requirements to distinguish America's most highly admired private clubs include: a history of excellence, quality of membership, condition of facilities, caliber of professional staff, enlightened and consistent governance, adaptable to changing times, member devotion to the club's distinctive culture, spirit of generosity in the community, prudent fiscal management and universal acknowledgement of greatness.

Given the stringent criteria and rigorous selection process as set out by the CMAA, Colleton River is extremely proud to have received the Platinum Club Award in recognition as one of the Top 15 Private Residential Communities in the United States.
