​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Riccarton Racecourse Bowling Club is a small and often described as a boutique Bowling Club which focuses on playing and enjoying your bowls and also a community that socialises together.

It has an excellent natural green and an all weather artificial surface. In 2022 our greenkeeper was awarded Greenkeeper of the Year, of which the Club is very proud of and reinforces the quality of our greens. The Club runs two bowling seasons: summer from September-April and winter season April-September. The Club offers both Interclub, Championships, Club Tournaments and social bowls to all members.The Programme is also available as a handbook and online. 


Welcome to our 2024 season. 

Winter Bowls membership is available to people from other clubs to play during the winter.  It is a great opportunity for Non Bowlers to learn as well.

For the winter season you have vitually unlimited use of the TIGER TURF GREEN SURFACE  FOR COMPETITIONS AND INDIVIDUAL PRACTICE.

The winter sub is just $80.00. No uniform is required, just flat soled shoes
