A friend brought me to the Tanglin Club and we managed to sneak in to the gym. It took me quite a while to get there because it's quite out of the way, and a long walk even from the nearest Orchard MRT station. Security wasn't very tight and we both managed to walk in without anyone asking for identification. However, please do not do this! They have already tightened up security and anyone using the facilities have to produce membership identification. I got caught the second time oops.
Compared to other clubs in Singapore, Tanglin Club is not very posh and it feels a little old and run-down. Makes me wonder if the $35,000 entrance membership fee is justified! However, the gym has excellent equipment and facilities. It was not crowded the last time I went, which made for a very peaceful and satisfactory workout. The Tanglin Club also has other facilities, like tennis courts and spas for members to use.
Although this club has many top-notch facilities and services, I still would not sign up for permanent membership due to it being too out of the way and too old-looking. Perhaps if they did a renovation would I then reconsider.
