The Gold Coast Bulletin - - NEWS - TUGUN BOWLS AND COM­MU­NITY CLUB:

Half a cen­tury af­ter be­ing set up by an en­thu­si­as­tic band of volunteers, the founders would be bowled over by what this club is to­day.

Mem­ber­ship steadily in­creased through the 1970s and in 1986 the club was ex­ten­sively ren­o­vated.

Both pok­ies and a board of man­age­ment were in­stalled in 1994. How­ever, the real boon came in 2002 when ri­val club Palm Beach closed its doors and Tugun in­stantly gained an ex­tra 300 mem­bers.

The club has un­der­gone nu­mer­ous facelifts in the time since but has never lost its sense of com­mu­nity val­ues.

To cel­e­brate, a day of bowls will be played by clubs from across the Gold Coast on Satur­day from 9am un­til 3.30pm with all wel­come to come and watch or pop in for a drink.
