Est 1943 - 2023

Welcome to Browns Bay Bowling club

As one of the premiere clubs in North Harbour our players have earned many National and Center titles through the years, and continue to compete in all the major events.

We are a very active club, catering for many of the North Harbour events, Club Champs, Roll-up Bowls and even Indoor bowls. We currently have three grass greens and one carpet green, so play can continue all year round.

A fully licensed bar that caters for all those thirsty souls after a long days play.

We also have a lounge area with a snooker table and 2 pool tables and dart boards.

A fully equipped kitchen means we can cater for functions of up to 250 people in the main building and up to 60 people in our smaller Pavilion venue.

We have a big business league competition in summer that is sponsored by Harcourts Cooper & Co

and we cater for many corporate functions through the year.

So, whatever your level of play, we can help. With our local coaches we can help you get into the wonderful and competitive world of bowls.

All enquiries are welcome.

Brent Turner Memorial

With 30 teams in the starting lineup, the weekend began well but after a slightly rainy afternoon on the first day, the top 16 teams and the bottom 14 teams played off for the $5000 cash prize pool come Sunday.

The eventual winners in the top section were Browns Bays Brian Wilson and Lindsay Gilmore who played with Riverhead’s Steve Cox; runners up from Manly were Keith Benson, Andy Dorrance and Kevin Rainsford, with Browns Bays Neil Fisher, John Walker and Colin Rogan taking third spot.

Players came from as far away as Whangārei in the north to Kerepehi in the Waikato, with a sizeable contingent of Auckland players crossing the harbour bridge for the two days. With our greens playing very well, the players all seemed to enjoy the atmosphere especially those who went home with meat pack or cash raffle prizes.

A big thanks to our caterers, the volunteers who assisted cleaning up, the bar people and those who helped set up and clean up the greens both days. The event which will now be played yearly, was very generously sponsored by Ray White Orewa and Mairangi Bay.

A special thanks also to the Turner family who proposed the tournament and  converted into a very successful weekend for the club.

Fairview & Settlers 2023 Ham Tournament

The Browns Bay Bowling Club annual ham tournament was held on the 12th of December with the amazing support of sponsors Fairview & Settlers lifestyle villages.  32 teams battled out for 64 hams that were on offer that day with prizes for the top 6 teams, 5 random teams, skips, 3rd's, 2nd's, leads and of course raffles.  Here is the winning team, a bunch of burglars from Browns Bay, with our great sponsors Robyn Rangi & Linda Neale of Fairview & Setllers.  More photos are in the gallery 2023/Ham Tournament.

2023 Harcourts Business House Bowls

The Wendy Treadwell sponsored pre-Christmas event concluded on Wednesday (22nd November) with 32 teams having taken part in the event.  Entries consisted of a number of old hands but also those new to the game.  This tournament is a warm up to the main competition due to start on 17 January 2024.  The winning team threatened to do to the new trophy what was done to the "main" trophy, ie run over it in the carpark, but I believe this is on pain of death!!!.  We know who you are as can be seen in the photo below, TIM.  See you all in the new year.
