Besides the main pavilion which houses dressing room designed in truly English traditional style, will also have modern media facility, commentators box and place for setting up TV cameras from where the proceedings of the action could be telecast live. The grounds on the boundary line of the playing arena could easily accommodate close to five thousand fans. The ASCC has always relied on involving private sector in developing the golf course and other recreational facilities. Some of the eighteen holes on the golf course have been dedicated to companies. The thick bush growth inside the golf course is a haven for boar hunting in the night. Arabian Sea Country Club located near the Pakistan Steel mills and only half an hour drive from Jinnah International airport will become worlds first country club which will have both an international golf course approved by the Asian Tour and an international class cricket facility. The eighteen-hole wind swept golf course designed by a leading golf course sculptor in mid eighties is considered as one of the best course East of Suez. Its fairways and exquisitely manicured greens are said to be even better than some of the courses located in the cash rich UAE. With the addition of a full-fledged cricket pavilion and a cricket ground which can hold a few thousand spectators on the rising skirting the boundary line, the Arabian Sea Country Club could claim a place in the Guinness Book of World Records for being the only country club in the world which has both an international golf course and an international standard cricket ground. The Country Club a brainchild of Javed Burki, the ASCC is the only golf course, which has boarding and lodging accommodation only a few yards away from the golf course. The occupancy of its 65 rooms facility is around 45 percent, which is better than any five star hotel located in the traffic clogged city centre. It also has tennis, squash, swimming pools, sauna, steam, Jacuzzi gymnasium, horse riding club, a petrol outlet and 24 hours dining facility which serves Continental, Chinese and Pakistani cuisine to its multinational clientele in its five restaurants. It is a safe place with a security parameter starting about a kilometre away from the clubhouse. Highly trained security personnel guard the premises 24 hours a day and 12 months a year. Entry to the premises is granted with the permission of the administration. The management of the ASCC has in principle decided to establish Chalets, health farm, shooting range and a polo ground with stable facilities which will revive the sport of polo in the city which once boasted some of the best polo players in the world. The cricket ground, which was laid a few years ago, has been the most sought after facility by teams of multinational companies. The hiring charges of the cricket ground as compared to some of other grounds located in the city are less expensive.
