On behalf of the Board
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.
Our Club is fully licensed, with full kitchen facilities. All staffing is by Members as volunteers. There are three synthetic greens ( only two in use ) and are playable year round.
