The prestigious club is built by the command of Prince Thewawong Warohpakahn, the 42nd child of King Mongkut, and is today still a members only club.

 

It also has a horse racetrack, where races still take place every fortnight (fig.), as the venue alternates between the Royal Bangkok Sports Club and the Royal Turf Club (fig.).
