A group of ten men gathered on May 16, 1923, to discuss forming an affiliated Lawn Bowling Club. The first greens were located near the Holy Cross Hospital and a tent served as a clubhouse until 1929. Then the club moved to 16th Ave SW where it spent just over 86 years.
The clubhouse and greens were relocated into the community of Spruce Cliff in 2016.
Over the years, we have had many members play in and win Canadian Championships and compete in the 2018 Commonwealth Games. Our Club hosted the 2018 Bowls Canada Boulingrin Canadian Senior Triples, where we were unofficially declared “the best greens in Canada.”
Calgary Lawn Bowling Club as part of Lawn Bowls Alberta follows the Long Term Athletic Development Model (LTAD). In doing so we recognize that bowlers can start at any age and move through the stages at different rates. We help our members be active for life and have activities suited to the different levels of bowlers; recreational bowlers who just want to be active and enjoy the sport, competitive bowlers who want to be active, enjoy the sport and compete as well as very competitive bowlers who also want to play at international levels.
