Today, with a membership of over 9,000, the Club has been acknowledged as the most active and established club in the country.
Founded on August 16, 1890, the Royal Lake Club is centrally located in Kuala Lumpur amidst the luscious and green Lake Gardens. Today, as envisioned by the former Prime Minister and Past President, the late Tun Abdul Razak, the Club is the country's premier club.
As one of the oldest and leading social club, the Royal Lake Club has always played an eminent role in setting standards and in maintaining its own strict code of excellence. Its membership reflects this and it is not surprising that both the membership and the evolution of the Club have been closely associated with the progress of our society.
The Club has always been a conducive venue for the private and public sectors to meet and develop lasting ties.
As noted by our former Prime Minister and Patron, YAB Dato Seri Dr Mahathir Mohamad, not least among the Club's achievement has been its successful transition from an exclusive colonial institution into an open multi-racial club in keeping with the changing environment of an independent multi-racial Malaysia.
Its central location makes it the most convenient place to meet, and the Club's dining and recreation centers are always well patronised by members and guests.
