Bowls in Rosebud is undergoing a raft of changes, with Rosebud Beach Community Bowls Club’s new name reflecting its direction as a true community organisation.
Three years ago the club’s future looked bleak, with uncertainty about its tenure on prime beachfront land, declining membership, poor greens and weakening finances. Since then, it has been revitalised with innovative programs, community involvement and a new energy. Support from Mornington Peninsula Shire Council has been invaluable, extending the club’s lease and ushering in needed repairs and renovations. Financial stability has been restored and led to improved greens, which are soon to be augmented by a new all-weather artificial surface, thus ensuring year-round availability for members and the community.
Friday Barefoot Bowls is a cornerstone of the club during summer, when families enjoy relaxing with friends and the kids on the greens or enjoying a quiet drink and meal in the welcoming clubrooms.
The club supports local charities such as aged support group 39+, Luke Batty Foundation and mental health programs as it reaches deeper into the community it serves.
