Our Story

Founded in 1903

It was mid-November in 1903 when a small group of Mosman gents made their way down a little dirt track, to a patch of unloved, scrubby bushland overlooking sparkling Sydney Harbour.

In front of them was a deep, neglected hole in the ground; an ugly cavern gouged into the earth by workers who had robbed it of all the stone they wanted.

It was the perfect place for a new bowling club to be known as Warringah.

The old quarry site on Bradleys Head Rd was quickly transformed into one of Sydney’s most spectacular sporting and social facilities, first opening to the public on December 3, 1904.

New Clubhouse, 1927

In 1927, the members of Warringah Bowling Club built a new clubhouse, which laid the foundations of what you see today.

The clubhouse remains largely unchanged, except for a few minor improvements; there have been some improvements in the plumbing and electrical systems; we have improved member comfort with sliding windows for panoramic vistas, and wide awnings to protect spectators, whatever the weather!

The rest of the building remains unchanged from the 1927 clubhouse – a testament to those who built it.

Now, more than a century later, Warringah Bowling Club is still going strong.

We welcome you to our special place filled with charm and character, a local haven where the old proudly meets the new. A club for competition or social bowls, where you can enjoy great food, a quiet drink, live music and sensational surrounds – right in the heart of Mosman.
