Our two greens accommodate large tournaments

Two greensOur two 120-foot square, 8-rink greens—one is floodlit—make our club a suitable venue for the larger local tournaments and for late evening games. Up to 128 players can play simultaneously.

Our greens are maintained under contract with Mr. John Correia.  Housekeeping is also contracted out. Everything else about the club premises and grounds is maintained by volunteers from the club.

You can find more information on how lawn bowling operates at our club in Daily Draws, Leagues and Tournaments.

Anderson House is our sports pavilion


We have two clubhouses. The smaller and older one is known as Anderson House. It acts as our “sports pavilion.”

img_0608This clubhouse is lined with 240 lockers that are used by members to store their bowling gear.

In the winter season, we play the short mat indoor game in Anderson House. We use two 40-foot carpeted rinks which are in place from late September to mid-April. Six two-hour time slots are scheduled each day on each rink for one of our four leagues or the daily friendly triples games.

You can find more information on how our short mat game operates in Short Mat at Oak Bay.

Carnarvon House is our social pavilion


The newer Carnarvon House is our “social pavilion” with full kitchen facilities and a licensed bar. It can hold events for up to 200 people. This is where we host dinners and other non-bowling activities.

Carnarvon House is available for private rental to club members.
