The stature and success of distinguished private membership clubs of the West were built upon very good rules in accepting new Members. Over time, the accumulation of “by invitation only” policy; strict screening and admission procedures; formal induction ceremony; exact but reasonable rules for the Members; the club's contribution to a city or a country; and Members with outstanding achievements and social statue would form the unique character and image of these outstanding institutions. Shenzhen Bay Club bears these important traditions in mind. Its operation is modeled after prestigious private clubs of the West, with specific focus on the quality of its Membership and long term sustainability. Outstanding events and activities will be created as part of the proper 'club traditions'.
