In 2023 – we unveiled the result of our collective efforts — a Clubhouse brand that rejuvenates its appearance while seamlessly aligning with our strategic plan's goals and objectives.
Introducing Noosa Lawns Club, the home of Tewantin Noosa Bowls Club. Noosa Lawns Club encapsulates our vision for the future — a modernised look and feel that harmonizes with the rich legacy of our beloved club.
This dynamic brand identity will invigorate our members and attract new enthusiasts to our vibrant community. It symbolizes our unwavering commitment to excellence and heralds a new era of success for Tewantin Noosa Bowls Club.
The Club first began in 1949 when a group of locals, who had been playing bowls at Alf Sprigget’s private rink on Poinciana Avenue, decided there was a need for a Bowling Club to be established. Some 40 men agreed to act as guarantors for a bank loan to finance the purchase of suitable land and establish a bowling green.
Land was purchased for 316 Pounds 18 Shillings and presented a real challenge - it was swampy, had a gully running through it and a mangrove creek on its eastern boundary.
After many hours of labour, clearing the site, some 1200 cubic yards of fill was obtained to fill the gully and build up the green foundation. Town water was not available so several wells were sunk to obtain the necessary water for maintaining the green.
The first clubhouse was but a small cottage about the size of a living room and some distance from this was the outside dunny.
Throughout our rich history two more greens have been added, the Clubhouse extended, then subsequently demolished, to be replaced with the present spacious building in 1989.
Over the decades the club has produced its share of champion bowlers in the club, local and state scene. But more importantly, it has provided both bowling and social activities for club members, visiting bowlers and members of the wider Noosa community.
Now boasting more than 1700 social and bowling members we look forward to welcoming past, present and future members to experience what is now the Noosa Lawns Club home of the Tewantin Bowls Club.
