About Us

The Club was founded in 1936 and affiliated with the Somerset West Country Club in January 1961. In November 1962 it was decided to change the name of the Club to Somerset West Country Club – Bowls Section – and later, due largely to the changes that had taken place within the Somerset West Country Club, it was decided to revert to the name Somerset West Bowling Club with effect from the revised constitution dated 31 May 2005.

Pursuant to an initiative by the Western Province Bowling Association to change their name to the Western Province Bowls Association, the Club deemed it appropriate to change its name to Somerset West Bowls Club with effect from the revised constitution dated 14 August 2008.

Our mission is to ensure that the Club evolves around a membership who have the vision and courage to embrace transformation as a vehicle for progress; an active group who are excited about where they want to go and are motivated to participate and innovate to achieve results that are credible, sustainable and of enduring benefit, in the knowledge that the Club belongs to them.
