Nambour Heights Bowls Club History
Nambour Heights Bowling Club (as it was then known) was established in 1967 as a result of the efforts of one man in particular, Con Daetz.
In the early 60’s there was significant development in Nambour and Nambour Heights and Con believed there was a need for another bowling club. Con donated the land, and went guarantor for the loan to build the club. Money was raised by raffles, and most of the work was conducted by working bees. The green and clubhouse was officially opened on 7th December 1967, with 36 founding members, and the Ladies Bowls Club was officially opened on Aril 11th 1968 with 21 founding members.
Several extension were added over the years, lights for the green were added in 1980, and a new bar was opened in 1997. The Heights bowlers have won several major competitions over the years including male and ladies championship pairs (1988, 1990) and men’s pennants titles.(1993, Div1, 1998 Div2). The club’s bowlers are still actively involved in interclub competitions including the Hinterland League and pennants competitions, for both the men and the ladies.
The club celebrated the 50th anniversary in 2017. Although a small club by comparison, The Heights has always been a strong club with a dedicated membership and a reputation for being a friendly club. And it has been that way since its foundation.
