Bribie Island Bowls Club celebrates 90 years

by jgrey on November 21, 2019

Bribie Island Bowls Club has turned 90 after being established in 1929 by members of the Brisbane Windsor Bowls Club after their many trips to the Island. The club, which currently boasts four outdoor greens and a recently renovated clubhouse, is one of the largest bowls clubs in Queensland with more than 400 bowling members and 6,000 social members.

The 2019 renovations included an upgrade of the bistro (including a new bar), coffee shop, bottle shop and a lift in the updated reception area.

“It was a pleasure to be able to show off our recently renovated facilities,” Chairman Peter Patrikeos said.

“The club was a buzz of activities over the two-day event including a celebratory and fun game of bowls for our members and a Hyundai Car Giveaway, which attracted hundreds of people to the club.

“In today’s market trend, turning 90 is a massive achievement and board, members and staff are now a part of the history of this great club,” General Manager Kevin Bertwistle said.

“We are setting the club up for a long and successful future and I am confident it will be around in another 90 years as well.”

The Bribie Island Bowls Club prides itself with being a friendly club with great modern facilities and offers one of the best views on Bribie Island overlooking the Pumicestone Passage. It recently won the Best Bowls Club (Large) in Queensland for the second year running and it does not disappoint. For more information on the club see
