Club Pine Rivers in Bray Park, named QLD’s best bowls club at the Keno and Clubs Queensland 2022 Awards for Excellence, is undergoing some upgrades and will soon unveil its new look.

The makeover project is expected to transform and extend the gaming area with a multi-purpose bowling site, incorporating modern gaming machines, garden views, LED lights, and outdoor seating with modern decking.

The purpose-built structure, constructed in a 20-ft container, will also include benches, beer taps, and coffee facilities. Rebecca Barker, Club Pine Rivers‘ marketing coordinator, said that the extension is intended to provide more space and comfort for the club members and their visitors.

Club Pine Rivers was originally the Pine Rivers Memorial Bowls Club, established in 1948 along Gympie Road in Strathpine. For over 30 years, this club had a small but dedicated membership but as the population in North Brisbane grew, the club moved to Bray Park in the 1980s.

The membership increased with more families setting their roots in Bray Park. Around this time, building extensions were undertaken to support the needs of the club, which has hosted national and international bowling competitions. 

On its 70th birthday in 2018, the club had 450 full members, 60,000 social members, and a staff of 100 people. It has maintained its reputation as one of the best in the region.   

Club Pine Rivers expects the upgrades to be completed before its target opening date on 1 July.
