The Grosse Pointe Yacht Club has been named among America’s “Clubs of Excellence” by industry consulting experts. Fewer than 100 clubs across the nation qualified for the honor.
“On behalf of all of our staff, who have worked tirelessly to make the Grosse Pointe Yacht Club the premier club that it is for our members, we truly appreciate this honor from one of the industry’s most highly respected consulting groups,” says Tom Trainor, general manager of the Grosse Pointe Shores-based club.
McMahon Group of St. Louis, Mo. recognized club managers of distinction over the last 19 years through its Excellence in Club Management awards, but had been silent regarding the clubs that they supported. The organization instituted this new honor to praise the organizations that exhibit excellence in the services they provide to their members.
“It’s generally accepted in the industry that the best clubs have the best managers,” says Alison Duffy, marketing director for the McMahon Group. “Wonderful clubs like the Grosse Pointe Yacht Club provide the environment that attracts these ‘best of the best’ and gives them a place to apply their ample skills. We’re pleased to recognize the Grosse Pointe Yacht Club’s contribution to the world of clubdom.”
