Established in 1903 in a beautiful bush and garden setting with two high quality playing lawns and modern clubrooms. This is a club for the community and inclusive for all.

Happening at the Club

From the Past President
June 13, 2021

I would like to thank you all for your support of the Executive Committee which took responsibility for the management of the club activities including the club bowling programme, the greens, the bar, lounge and kitchen facilities.

A very successful prize-giving and Greenside dinner was held on Saturday, 8 May after a Mystery Gala took place during the afternoon. 52 members stayed to enjoy the dinner and celebrate the end of a season not affected by Covid.
Congratulations to all the winners of the various club competitions – the trophies look good in the cabinet after their yearly polish. John Forde won the trophy for the Bowler of the Year.
The Annual General Meeting will take place on Sunday, 20 June 2021 at 2.00 pm followed by the President’s shout and nibbles provided by Ryman.
We look forward to seeing you there as it gives members the opportunity to raise any issues they are concerned about.
An important report by a task force that has been working on the future of the club under the leadership of Peter McGuinness will be discussed and it is important that all members are on board with this.

L.T. McGuinness |Les Taylor Memorial Cup
May 2, 2021

There was a good turnout of bowlers (competitive, not so competitive, and social) on Friday 12th March to play for the Cup in memory of Les Taylor, a stalwart of the Club.

The winning team:
Ray Jones, Denis Mouat, Joan Eaton,  Joy Taylor (presenting the Cup) and Dave Rodda (Skip).

Many thanks for the generosity of  L. T. McGuinness in support of this fun event.

The after-match function, in keeping with the Club’s social activities, was memorable.
