ABOUT

RBSC

More than a hundred years ago, the historic 1901 Charter established The Royal Bangkok Sports Club. Over the years, the Club has been faithful to this Charter and has evolved into a unique institution, at once traditional yet responsive to the changes around it.

Chairman's Message

July - August 2022

Dear Members,

It’s a pleasure for us that the COVID-19 pandemic is about to end, and the situation has started to return to normal. It’s been an appreciation to members with medical knowledge and all personnel who have worked together to prevent the spread of the epidemic as best as they can. This has allowed the Club to welcome members back to the full service as before.

In addition, regarding the concerns about the land and building tax which the Club has an obligation to pay, it has been officially confirmed that it is at an appropriate level and does not affect the financial status of the Club, and the Club has paid such annual tax.

However, the Club still has a mission, that has been set up since the Club’s establishment, to jointly work with the Racing Committee in coordination with external parties especially the Department of Provincial Administration and the Sports Authority of Thailand to continue the horse racing without any financial burden and, most importantly, be a sustainable activity.

With regard to the process to revive the Old Clubhouse building back for members’ safe usage, the Club has proposed a course of action which is currently under consideration of the Crown Property Bureau and related government offices. This shall take some time before the Club is able to proceed the next step.

Members would share my same opinion that our golf course counts the highest value in the country and is also located in the heart of Bangkok. Therefore, it’s essential that the Club has a professional Golf Director to supervise and develop our golf course’s quality to be commensurate with the value and uniqueness of this land.

When I took the role of the Club Chairman, I said that I would like to see members, especially young people with knowledge, ability, and volunteer spirit participate and learn to manage Club activities. Now my hope has come true with the Club having a committee called “Young Committee” soon. This committee will be coached by the General Committee in the process of system learning and to create the Club to international standards.

In the near future, we are launching a premium food & beverage outlet at the Sports Pavilion named “1901” – the year the Club was founded. We are certain that this special place will be enjoyed by members to entertain special guests with great honors.

Besides special privileges members receive regularly, the Club also has agreements with reciprocal clubs in several countries, in which members have the privilege to enjoy facilities and services when traveling aboard. The list of reciprocal clubs worldwide can be found on the website, or simply check with our membership service office.

To close this message, the General Committee and I would like to assure that we will continue to develop the Club so all members enjoy the Club together in perfect harmony.

Dr. Karoon Chandrangsu
Chairman
