Membership

 

Golf was first played at Currie in 1910 when about 30 enthusiasts engaged in the game for a period when the grass was short enough to enjoy the sport without it deteriorating into a game of “find the ball”.

The King Island Golf Club was formed in 1931 and moved to its current location in 1932.

A bowling green was established in 1959 and the two sporting clubs amalgamated that year to form the King Island Golf and Bowling Club.

Lawn Bowls

Lawn bowls are played on Thursdays at 4.00pm (social bowls) and Saturdays are competition days commencing at 1.00pm (weather depending) from mid September through to the end of March.

Visitors are most welcome and Mark Reed (Bowls Captain) will organize a game for those keen to have a roll and also make you feel at home.
