It is not just the salty seaside air that finds its way to the Carrum Bowling Club — so did Mick Molloy’s iconic 2002 comedy Crackerjack. Now this jewel nestled behind the dunes of the Seaford-Carrum beachfront is undergoing a $400,000 renovation, further strengthening its position as one of Australia’s most popular bowling clubs.

The Keast Park Community Pavilion will be reimagined, with internal alterations and demolished walls creating space to house the bustling club that isn’t just the lifeblood of the old. More than 1200 children over the past three years have joined the junior development program that caters to an impressive 21 schools. 

Junior development co-ordinator Kingsley Ellis said the club had grown by 40 per cent in just four years on the back of premiership wins. “The kids have a lot of fun and our seniors enjoy their infectious energy too,” Kingsley said. 

According to Frankston Mayor Michael O’Reilly, the two-stage upgrade will deliver new social spaces, including a bar and office, along with a kitchenette and better bathroom amenities. Local, state and federal contributions have facilitated the project, which is expected to be completed this month.

From humble beginnings 95 years ago and a complete redevelopment in 2011, last year the club received the Junior Club of the Year Award in Victoria. Meanwhile, female participation is booming both on the green and within leadership roles, which is something the new amenities address.

“The fresh sea air, the gorgeous sunsets and the lovely gardens make the decision for new members to join even easier,” Kingsley said.
