Fire Emergency Support

Special thank you to Brian Buckingham, Rhonda and Nola, Graham Savage, Graham Evans, Di and Ron Bateman, Tony Stevens, Sharyn and Barry Engel and Roger Mableson.  We managed to fill a trailer load and more and delivered to some very grateful and very tired people at Lobethal RSL Hall.  They are so overwhelmed with donations that they have run out of room.  They now need time to sort it out and get it to those that need it most.  Hold off for any more donations and we may help again in the New Year.  I have heard that 4 Lobethal members have lost their homes.

Thank you again. Merry Xmas and Happy New Year to you all and stay safe.


    To all members, their family and friends,                                      we wish you a very Merry Christmas                                              and a safe, healthy and Happy New Year.                                          The HBC Committee. Good Bowling.

Sidewood Estate joins as a Sponsor

We are delighted to advise our members that Sidewood Estate has recently joined as a sponsor.  You will note their signs are located aside our green and in the clubrooms.  Added their stubbie holders in your “sponsor show bag”.

Owners and Vignerons, Owen and Cassandra Inglis founded Sidewood in 2004 borne of their uncompromising vision and passion for creating beautifully balanced, elegant, award-winning wines. Despite Sidewood being a relatively new brand in the wine industry, it has already achieved Five Red Star Accreditation from James Halliday and in 2016 became the largest eco-sustainable winery in the Adelaide Hills.

Situated a short drive east from Adelaide in the Onkaparinga Valley, the winery and vineyards are nestled in the cool- climate region of the Adelaide Hills, a heartland of Australian premium wine. The vineyard portfolio includes locations in Echunga, Nairne and Verdun with the original 300-acre Oakbank vineyard also being home to Sidewood’s 40 thoroughbred racehorses that fall under the name, Stable Hill Thoroughbreds.

For those wanting a tasting or purchase, drop into their Cellar Door located at 6 River St, Hahndorf, Wednesday – Sunday from 11.00 am – 5.00 pm.

Grant Presentation

Our Club has received a $5000 Active Club Program Grant towards conducting programs that improves the service provided by the Club and/or costs of consumable equipment, uniforms or ground maintenance equipment.   The Grant Program comes through the State Government Office for Recreation, Sport and Racing Funding Program.

State Member for Kavel, Dan Cregan MP presented a Certificate to President Chris Button on Friday following the completion of our Qube Logistics Pairs Tournament.


Greens Lighting Completed

We are excited that a few weeks ago our new LED Greens Lighting was installed.  Results from a lighting audit indicated that we have better than doubled our coverage of the green, thereby providing safer conditions for evening play.

We kindly acknowledge Sport Australia and the Mt Barker Council for their excellent financial support in the most important project.
