Club History

26 September 1951

The Balgowlah Bowling Club’s origins date back to 26 September 1951 when at a public meeting it was resolved that a bowling club be formed.

The meeting, held at Balgowlah Golf Club was attended by 188 people and was chaired by the then Mayor of Manly, James Anderson. The meeting appointed two provisional committees (sites and finance) to report back in a month’s time.
