Our clubhouse makes an ideal place to hold your next function. The spacious clubroom can be decorated in a wide variety of ways, you can have a barbeque, play a game of barefoot bowls on our superb green and you’ll have access to our well-stocked bar facilities (the drinks prices are vintage, too!).

Our flat rate, (Currently $750), covers use of the indoor facilities including the commercial kitchen, plus the BBQ facilities and outdoor area including lawn bowls equipment and someone to get you started to play the game.
