This is near to Hard Rock Cafe, K.C Das, Koshy's, and St.Marks church. Spacious Lawn, Fine restaurants, Swimming pool. Hotel accommodation. Unfortunately it is not open to public. A member of the club should invite you in to enjoy its amenities. It is a listed building. Impossible .to become a member. .
