As of the 1st February all green fees will be increasing by $3.00 per game. Although this may seem unpopular to many members, it is necessary due to the combined costs of Greenkeepers wages, Council rates and a significant increase in Club Insurance which are placing the Club under financial stress. As Burnett is primarily a Bowls Club it is only reasonable to expect that the bowling members share the cost of these expenses to ensure that the Club remains viable and open. Thanks for your understanding.


Visitors most welcome on all playing days. Entry sheets are at the club or phone the club on 41514217. If you cannot get through on the club number regarding bowls then phone 0401341378 or 0466539441.
