Bowls membership at the Heidelberg Golf Club provides opportunities to join a pennant team or just play for fun! The Club offers lawn bowlers of all levels the opportunity to join a great club, with excellent facilities and a friendly atmosphere. There are no strangers at our bowling club, just friends you haven’t met yet.

Bowls is a mentally stimulating activity that offers great friendships and the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors, participating in a sport that does not require outstanding strength or physical attributes unless you are playing at a very advanced level.

For those so inclined, bowls can also provide a competitive outlet, to be enjoyed for most of one’s life.
