History

 

The Helensvale Bowls Club was established in 1979 and has built up a reputation for friendly service, good beverages, good food and good times. The business is proud of the success we have created through hard work and a great team.

Originally named The Helensvale Bowls Club, there was only one green with the second built in the mid 80’s and the third in 2000. When poker machines were first introduced in Queensland the club purchased nine and we now have a total of 210 gaming machines. In 1994 our General Manager Len Brunt was appointed and in 1995 a bistro with budget meals was introduced and still continues today.

The Club has undertaken a massive facelift over the last ten years with five different stages at the cost of $7.5 million. Further developments commenced in 2007 with major renovations to the main lounge area of the club incorporating a central bar, Café 22 and The Punt Sports Bar. In 2012 the Grill Bistro underwent a major facelift to become the current blu bistro. It is now a premium dining venue with seating for over 300, modern Australian A la Carte menu and a great atmosphere. In 2014 our entrance and foyer went through a dramatic upgrade and our gaming room increased to 210 poker machines with the addition of a new bar and cashier. With further stages of the master plan in the pipeline, Club Helensvale will continue to progress and provide state of the art facilities for our members and guests.

In 2004 the club adopted the name “Club Helensvale” with several “Club of the Year” awards through Bowls Queensland and “Best Bowls Clubs” awards from Clubs Queensland to follow. In 2009 we were inducted into the Clubs Queensland Hall of Fame.

Club Helensvale has also achieved great success in Lawn Bowls with several high profile bowlers playing for us that have won a host of events including gold, silver and bronze medals at the Commonwealth Games and other world class events.

The future of Club Helensvale looks bright with 20,000 current members and growing each year. We strive to be the social centre of the northern end of the Coast and the premier bowls club in Queensland.
