Bowls Australian Open > Host Clubs > Mudgeeraba


History and Overview

Dubbed the “little club with a huge welcome mat”, the Mudgeeraba Bowls Club was founded in 1988 and prides itself on welcoming new members and visitors through it’s doors. The current clubhouse actually began its life as a demountable house and has been built up over the years to the current structure!

The club is located around 25 minutes inland from the Broadbeach area, and runs two greens all year round. The club is heavily involved in partnerships with other sporting and community organisations in the area, and is located within a local sporting precinct.

About the Club

The club runs two floodlight greens and has a huge amount of parking within the club precinct. Its restaurant, “The Rinx Bistro”, will be open throughout the Australian Open along with the clubs bar and pokies facilities. A courtesy bus will also be available to visitors to the club.

Personalities and Legends

Headlining Mudgeeraba’s strong participant contingent at the Australian Open is Queensland stalwart Alan Law, holder of countless titles from over his many years in the sport. Alan will be playing alongside his son Ian in Men’s Pairs and will be hard to beat!

Thoughts on the Australian Open

Mudgeeraba’s Australian Open Venue Coordinator and Committee member Fiona Hall said the club is again thrilled to be a part of the Australian Open. “The 2016 Australian Open was absolutely fantastic, the club absolutely loved being involved.” said Hall. From a playing perspective, Fiona and her partner Sue Melville took time out from coordinating play at Mudgeeraba to reach the knockout rounds in the Women’s Pairs at last year event!
