WELCOME TO THE CLIFTON SPRINGS BOWLING CLUB

The Friendly Club Where visitors are always welcome

GOOD FRIDAY BOWLS DAY

Hi to all our wonderful members.  This Friday (Good Friday) we are having a bowls day starting at 2pm and I would love to see as many members including social members put their names down to play.  It is a fun day where we all enjoy and at the same time help kids who are not as fortunate as us.

All proceeds from this day including our Easter Egg raffle which will be at around 6pm will go the Royal Children’s Hospital Appeal.

This is a wonderful cause and if we can help by donating all the proceeds from the day to this, I believe we will have felt like we have truly contributed.

We have lots of Easter Eggs to raffle thanks to the generosity of one of our esteem members in Kenton Savage. After the Easter Egg Raffles will be the members draw which now stands at $100 after one of our members took out the main prize of $225 last week. I thought he may have donated it back but he is a bit of a tight wad I am told.

I have emailed the Easter Bunny to attend the evening but at this stage I have had no reply, maybe I will get a reply tomorrow.

Please come along and join in the fun the more bowlers we get the more we can give to the kids in need. At times we think we are hard done by but Geez, these kids are absolutely true warriors.

Unfortunately we cannot do a lot towards food, with COVID19, but if all works well we will have a few Hot Cross Buns for you to munch on along with a drink or two.

Let us give to these kids on this special day.

Our History

The original Clifton Springs Hotel was located at or about this site wherein a Bowling Green had always been envisaged

Of historical significance is the well documented fact that adjacent to the Bowling Club site are the remains of the first Mineral Springs/Spa development on the Bellarine Peninsula which was established around 1870. Subsequently a Hotel was built together with many jetties to cater for the burgeoning tourist trade as well as water supply, produce and shell grit export. The Hotel burnt to the ground in 1921 and a second hotel replaced it in 1926. This was remodelled about 1957 to become The Clifton Springs Country Club. In 1977 the property was acquired by The Shire of Bellarine. It was later purchased by The Clifton Springs Golf Club and remodelled once again.

It is noteworthy that our Bowling Club now stands on the land once the site of the original hotel’s staff quarters

The Bowling Club is located on the Southern shore of Corio Bay, on the Bellarine Peninsula and immediately west of The Clifton Springs Golf Course.

Ample parking is available adjacent to the Club.
