Francis Drake Bowling Club


Francis Drake Bowling Club was established in 1948 and operated from its premises and greens in Barton St, Monterey NSW. In 2007 the Club merged with Ramsgate RSL Club with its assets, including land and buildings forming part of the merged club. Under the merger agreement, Francis Drake Club, including its lawn bowls,  was to continue to operate separately from the Ramsgate Club. However, on 14th March 2014, the Administrator of Ramsgate RSL closed Francis Drake Bowling Club, with all bowling activities being transferred to the Ramsgate greens. The Francis Drake site was subsequently sold. In December 2014 Francis Drake Men’s Bowling Club was no longer provided with the use of the Ramsgate greens, so in January 2015 it moved to the Moorefield Club where it was welcome and has conducted its Thursday bowls since.

Francis Drake is registered with Bowls NSW as a Bowling Combination with around 70 Members, with an average of 42 bowlers playing each week
