SOUTHBROOM BOWLING CLUB

Southbroom Bowling Club is known by members and visitors alike as one of the prettiest and friendliest clubs on the Hibiscus Coast.
The club is located in the centre of the village with the parking entrance on Imbezane Drive.

The green was laid down between 1948/49 by former Margate bowler Jimmy Green and the late Ernie Sturman of Southbroom. It was officially opened in 1950.

The green is in excellent condition, and both the interior and exterior of the clubhouse have recently been redecorated.

After tabs, the bar is warm, the drinks are cold and the terrace convivial.

The Green

Tabs-in social bowls is played on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday afternoons. Summer times: 14.00 for 14.30 except Fridays (12 ends) at 15.00 for 15.30. Winter: 13.30 for 14.00 and Fridays 14.30 for 15.00.

Club members pay R10 for tabs games, including refreshments. Visitors associated with Kingfisher Bowling Association pay R15 and visitors from elsewhere R20. Non-affiliated members pay R50; all scholars are free.

We have five competitions a month, sponsors being Mariner’s Restaurant, Wolf Security, Tiago’s flame-grilled chicken, JL Panelbeaters, Riptide Restaurant, Sensasia Spa and Deli..sh! There’s a chicken and egg competition on the last Friday of the month, and on the last Sunday we have bowls (9 for 9.30) followed by a braai. Bring your own meat and a salad to share – this is the best salad bar on the south coast!

The bright and friendly Clubhouse

Whites are not necessary for social games. Please wear suitable shoes that won’t damage the green (no studs or heels). Bowls usually finishes at about 5pm.

If you are interested, come and meet us on the terrace one afternoon.

We have lucky enough to several qualified coaches. There is no charge for coaching. Most new bowlers need half-dozen lessons before going onto the green – it’s not quite as easy as the better players make it look!

Holiday-makers keen to have a go should contact the secretary to arrange a time and a little informal coaching. Even once-off bowls is much more fun when you have learned the rudiments.
