ClubCorp CEO Eric Affeldt said:
“We are incredibly proud of what we accomplished in 2016. The success of our O.N.E. offering, reinventions and acquisitions embody the core competencies that are at the essence of who we are as a company… a successful membership business and a growing network of private lifestyle clubs that cater to our members' needs and wants. As a result, ClubCorp has produced six consecutive years of record revenue and adjusted EBITDA growth. Since 2010, revenue and adjusted EBITDA have grown 8.0% and 8.9%, respectively, compounded annually. To celebrate our 60th anniversary, we will be launching some exciting new product offerings that will expand our addressable market reaching even more prospective members.”
