In the succeeding years, many renovations and improvements to update the facilities of the Club were implemented, viz, an elevated covered terrace linking the swimming pool complex to the dining room/mixed lounge, air conditioning to the latter, an exclusive Tiger Bar behind the bowling alley for members who may wish to drink in a comfortable and congenial ambience, a new open terrace surround the mixed lounge, and the expansion of the existing kitchen. The Club now provides the following facilities:
The Club may well be forgiven if it proudly boasts the fact that the Tiger Lane course had produced many of the country's golfing talents for national representations in the Putra, Eisenhower and World Cups.
In 1974, the Club was given the signal honour to host the Malaysian Open Golf Championship when, for the first time since its inception, the Championship venue was changed from the Royal Selangor Golf Club, Kuala Lumpur to RPGC. Graham Marsh was the winner, and Sukree Onchum of Thailand established a course record when he carded a 65 in the first round of the Tournament which still remains unbroken.
RPGC organized the 1979 - 1981, Mizuno Tournament Championship outside Japan. Representatives of Mizuno Corporation attributed our superb handling of the 1974 Malaysia Open and our challenging golf course as being the deciding factors for the Club to organize the Tournaments.
US Masters Champion, Fuzzy Zoeller and former US Open Champion Hubert Green also brought a touch of class to the Club when they played the Benson and Hedges International Golf Series 3rd round match here in December 1979. It was the first time that Royal Perak played host to two champions of the caliber of Zoeller and Green. At that time, they had to contend with two different types of greens - cow grass on the 1st Nine and Serangoon grass on the 2nd Nine. Since 1986, the greens have been turfed with a hybrid of Bermuda grass called Tydwaf with the exception of the 18th which is still Serangoon grass.
The Perak Masters Open Championship, a brain child of DYMM Sultan Azlan Shah of Perak, was inaugurated and played off in November 1987 as an added boost to the game and became a regular fixture on the MGA calendar.
