Gold Coast’s Best Barefoot Bowls

A mighty enjoyable way to spend a Sunday arvo and popular for bucks, hens and work parties, too….

It’s hard to beat the relaxed atmosphere of sinking some beers straight from a bucket of ice on a beautiful day. Throw in a little bit of bowls and you’ve got yourselves a great afternoon. The thing we love best about Bowls Clubs is that your drinks are always going to be cheap. We know you’re already pumped and there’s no need to sell the concept, so we’ll jump straight to the point. Here are the Top 3 best barefoot bowls clubs on the Gold Coast – there’s sure to be one near you!
