Founded in the 1960s, this club makes the most of its Southside location with stunning views over Deep Water Bay.

It has plenty of facilities to keep you and your little rascals busy, including tennis and squash courts, a bowling alley, health centre, swimming pool and some truly divine restaurants.

Fun fact: This is the club where former French consul general, Marc Fonbaustier, was expelled in 2010 for stealing two bottles of wine.

Wine and dine: The club has both a Chinese and French-inspired restaurant as well as outdoor Italian dining on the Foreshore Deck and the Garden Room, which serves international cuisine. 

For the family: The club has an adventure playground with wooden climbing frames set right next to the lawn, where they can run to their heart’s desire.

There’s also an indoor playroom with a full-time supervisor.

The littlest members are catered for with events including “Funtastic Sunday,” featuring bouncy castles on the lawn. 

Joining & Membership Fee: The waiting list is upwards of 10 years, and applications are assessed according to a strict nationality quota to ensure the organisation's diversity. 

Expect an individual membership to set you back HK$460,000, while a corporate membership is HK$5,000,000. Monthly fees are HK$2,500.

No. of Members: 2,000

Tatler Tip: Young sportsmen and women (aged 16-28) may be able to sidestep the hefty entrance fees by applying for a Junior Sports membership, which costs a one-off fee of $200 plus $200 per month after that.
