 Buderim Bowls  


Buderim Bowls Club is situated in beautiful, quiet surroundings on Buderim Mountain at the centre of the Sunshine Coast, within easy distance of the beaches at Mooloolaba, Alexandra Headland and Maroochydore. Two excellent greens cater for men and women bowlers of all ages. Synthetic greens are being planned for some time in 2011.

Open Day - try your hand at this exciting and sociable sport at our next open day (to be announced). Games, prizes, lucky draw and free sausage sizzle. Bowls provided. Flat soled shoes required. If you missed out last time and would like to try your hand, ring or e-mail the Club. The many who participated in previous open days showed considerable potential and a variety of styles.

Night Bowls Club members can enjoy open triples under the lights on Wednesday nights in season. Members of the public can come-and-try in a social setting on Friday nights. A sausage sizzle and bar facilities are available.

Social Membership Although the club is renowned as a bowlers' bowls club, social members are welcome to enjoy the bar facilities and all club social functions.Bar lounge
