The annual “Chef of the Year” competition draws from more than 200 golf clubs with over 2,000 nominations. Hassan Bakhdoud from TPC Piper Glen was named “Chef of the Year” last year after a week of delicious hosted lunches and dinners demonstrating the epicurean talents of five semifinalists.

At the time of its founding in 1957, Invited (formerly ClubCorp) was known for being a business disruptor and pioneer that redefined the private club industry. The vision of founder Robert H. Dedman was to create private clubs where everyone is welcome, regardless of age, race, religion, or background. He died in 2002, but his legacy lives on in our ClubLife family of clubs and many of his philosophies are practiced to this day. We proudly continue the tradition of welcoming new Members from all walks of life.

“We are Invited”; is a dynamic lifestyle company that brings people together through extraordinary experiences, impeccable service, and opportunities to build meaningful relationships. As the largest owner and operator of private clubs, we take pride in creating vibrant communities where everyone is welcome and every day is a celebration at more than 200 golf and country clubs, city clubs, and stadium clubs in 30 states, the District of Columbia, and two foreign countries.
