The Sanctuary Golf Club continues to demonstrate its leadership position among private clubs worldwide as the Club’s General Manager, Ken Kouril has been re-designated as “Certified Club Manager” (CCM) with the Club Managers Association of America (CMAA).

The Sanctuary Golf Club, located on Sanibel Island, has had a wonderful two years in receiving a number of coveted national awards including the Platinum Club of America and recently was selected by the Boardroom Magazine and the Distinguished Club of America as one of only two private clubs across the country to receive the coveted Emerald Club Award. In 2009, Joe Passov, the Architectural Editor for GOLF Magazine, recognized the club as one of the top 500 clubs in the world, which is indeed high praise considering the more than 32,000 clubs worldwide.

Kouril maintained his designation by completing the Certification Maintenance Requirement (CMR). The CMR requires managers with the CCM designation to earn 120 education and activity credits within their five-year certification period. Kouril earned his CCM designation as a result of fulfilling specific requirements in club management experience, education and association activity. 

The CMAA Certification Committee, consisting of active club managers, administers the certification system. Through the certification program, CMAA encourages the education and advancement of its members and assists club officers and members in securing the most efficient and successful club operations available.

The Club Managers Association of America is the professional association for managers of leading private country, city, yacht, athletic, military and fraternal clubs in the U.S. and abroad.  Founded in 1927, CMAA provides executive career services, a lifetime professional development program and two national trade magazines, Club Management and The Board Room, to its more than 7,000 members.
