The club is located at the western end of third street, Linden and offers magnificent views and sunsets.

The club was founded in 1969. We call ourselves the FRIENDLY club. The clubhouse overlooks two championship greens and boasts a number of outstanding bowlers. Our youngest member is 11 years old and our oldest is 98 years old (still playing). Club members and their guests participate in numerous social activities such as quiz and race evenings, fun days, bring and braais, sponsored tournaments, supper nights, etc. We have a well stocked and friendly pub which is open most days until 20h00 where the drinks are sold at club prices. We hold our internal competitions and participate in league, mid week league, JBA and external competitions. We always support our members in major tournaments, as well as in the latter stages of JBA tournaments, due to most of us playing in them. Some of our members are at the club every Friday morning to coach the children from Casa Do Sol School. On Youth Day 2016 we collected and introduced the underprivileged children from The Villa of Hope to the game of bowls.
