If you go to the above link and scroll about half-way down you'll find an aerial photograph of the site where the club was located. You can clearly make out the old runway going from the lower left to the upper right along with two intersecting roads or other runways that end up looking like an arrow pointing towards the upper right. If you look closely you can see that similar pattern in Google.

Now that Google has higher resolution images of this area I think the remains of the club itself can be found here, just to the northeast of the arrow described above.

I'll update the location, thanks. In the future, you can use the 'Report Errors' link and I'll update.

The building that is shown is a hanger. If you click on the right arrow 5 times, then down three times, you'll see the actual club and housing area. To the ESE. It has the U shaped foundation, which used to be the guest quarters.

I meant to say that the foundation in the photo is of the former hanger. If you see Tedder's first comment, the link points out the actual location of the Club.
