History Established since 1916

In 1916 as a horse riding facility for the then Tanganyika governor lord Cameron, Dar es Salaam Gymkhana club has over the years evolved to become the center for development of all forms of sports and entertainment.

Membership has increased to just over 1000 including full member's foreign resident's members. Country members, honorary members, temporary members, member's children and reciprocal members.

A well drafted constitution abounding with rules and by-laws that holds the members together provides equal rights to all and suits the interests of all members.

The facility is currently home to a total 78 permanent employees in various posts from security guards to bar attendants and management officers with more making a living as caddies, ball-boys as well as green-keepers.
