A Message from the CEO

Welcome to Valentine Bowling Club!

I’m thrilled to welcome you to our thriving Club! We’re a proud member of the Valentine and Lake Macquarie community, and I have been honoured to serve as club CEO since August 2011. In this time, I’ve seen the Club continue to grow and deliver its benefits to our members, all the while enjoying the stunning view of Lake Macquarie that we’re famous for!

As 2017 rolls toward the end of the year we have plenty of exciting developments and events for members and guests to take advantage of. Make sure you head over to our News and Events page to keep up with the latest. If you are interested in booking our Functions space for your next event, please visit our Contact page. You can also find important Club Documents and Policies here, and all the News and Information for Bowlers.

Again, I’d like to thank you for taking an interest in our Club, and hope that you enjoy your visit.

Kind Regards,

Leisa Charlton, CEO.

History

Valentine Bowling Club was founded in 1963, beginning with a single green and clubhouse on the southern side of the current green. The club quickly became an established part of the community, and expanded to add a second green in 1965, bar facilities, and a commercial kitchen and restaurant. Over the years this expansion has continued, providing access to entertainment activities like TAB, gaming machines and Keno, and a functions room for those special events.

Valentine Bowling Club celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2013, and remains an important part of the local community. The club sponsors several local groups and sporting teams, and still achieves impressive results on the bowling green.

The club has undergone extensive renovations, the latest completed in 2016. This renovation included a major expansion and refit of the Jessie’s on the Water kitchen, as well as a brand-new bar and alfresco dining area. Come down and take a look at our fresh new club today!
