Welcome to Karitane Bowling Club!


    Outdoor bowling is in hibernation for the winter but our members have been active behind the scenes with repairs and touch-ups to the clubrooms and ongoing maintenance to the green. Our kitchen has been remodelled and we are very pleased with the result. It will be a great asset to the club and we are looking forward to it getting plenty of use next season. We are extremely grateful to the following for grants and donations: Lottery NZ; Waikouaiti Coast Community Board; Oceania; and Downer. Without their support the project would not have got off the ground. Now is a good time to start thinking about taking up lawn bowls this Spring/Summer. You don’t need your own bowls as the club can lend you these. We cater for all levels of interest, whether you just want to learn the game, play competitively, or simply enjoy being a social member. Membership isn’t restricted to the 65 pluses! You can be assured of a warm welcome at Karitane.
