History & Beyond

Bowls Club
In 1947 a group of local men had an idea to create a club.

Together they purchased land and formed a committee to make their idea a reality. The original club was established in 1948 at North Macksville now the Pacific Highway site and was officially opened by Mr Walter Stone a local Solicitor.

With great ideas comes progress!

In 1949 the club expanded to include women, establishing The Woman’s Club.

The upgrading of the Pacific Highway heralded significant change and further opportunities. In 1969 the original club was moved from the highway site to its present site at Wallace Street, establishing itself with 1 Green.

In 1951 The Mid North Coast District Association was formed, consisting of four clubs. Today there are now 13 clubs from Woolgoolga to Scotts Head.
Demand and increased membership saw the club establish a 2nd Green in 1981.

Continued growth and success

Throughout its history Macksville Country Club has enjoyed success in District Pennants and District Singles and has produced many local champions.

The addition of our Golf course has added another dynamic to our club and attracts a variety of regular social and competitive players.

The club has continued to expand its membership and scope and regularly hosts tournaments and charity events. A welcome addition is Charmian's Kitchen which serves delicious home style food at a reasonable price. The Club has also grown to offer catering and venue hire for up to 250 people and features regular live music and special events.

A favourite amongst members, locals and passing travellers continues to be the cheap beer prices and great service.

Our Board of Directors, staff and members look forward to meeting you in person and sharing with you our country hospitality.
