  • July 30, 2020  – Eid Greetings & further updates

May the eternal peace from heaven embrace your life on this Eid ul Adha and fill it with uncountable blessings.

Due to Unprecedented pandemic situation (COVID-19) in the country, Club was forced to temporarily close the services and then managed to offer limited services in few areas as permissible. Currently, Golf, Polo, Riding, Tennis, Guest Rooms, Library along with Food Takeaway and Patisserie are open for members under certain SOP’s. The pandemic situation however, is getting better now day by day with the blessing of Allah AllMighty. Accordingly, we are eagerly looking forward to greet our honorable members once we’ll be able to re-open the remaining Club facilities as soon as possible subject to instructions of Government since members’ health and safety is our utmost concern and is important than anything else.

Moreover, in the meantime we tried to utilize this desolate time period for some yield by anyway and hence are pleased to announce the following achievements take effect from 1st July, 2020; with the start of new financial year 2020-21.

  1. A new website replacing the older version with fresh look and feel blended with ease of info, has gone live. Members can now experience fast and easy browsing at www.islamabadclub.org.pk. along with required information regarding club facilities, updated news, events and much more.

  3. Club regulations including membership regulations has been rehashed and updated for the ease, effectivity and convenience of our members. Copy of the same would be updated shortly on Club website and also be available approximately from Mid of August for collection by members.
  4. After the recent launch of new menu at Family hall and Darbar Hall, new menu at Club Patisserie has also been introduced. The new menu features appetizing bakery items primed to satisfy your taste buds. Due to escalation in commodity prices, inflation and subsequent increase in operational cost the prices of existing and new menu items have been adjusted accordingly.
  5. Moreover, due to escalating costs and increase in operating expenses, the Club management was compelled to enhance/adjust the charges/prices of some other facilities/ services which were not adjusted for many years to ensure quality services for our members. The revision will come in effect from 1st August, 2020. We are confident that our honorable members will take it all in the spirit that these measures deserve.
