The original Bowls facilities in Hughenden were commenced in the 1930’s near the powerhouse.
The Club moved to its current site in the 1960’s when the Clubhouse was also constructed.
The Men’s and Ladies Clubs merged in the late 1990’s.
The original tift-dwarf green was replaced by a synthetic green in 2008 as small numbers and the cost of water had rendered the natural surface uneconomic.
A retractable shade structure was erected in 2013.
The Clubhouse is used for Indoor Bowls on Monday mornings and Tuesday nights. The Senior citizens hold functions on Wednesday at noon. Currently the Hughenden Chamber of Commerce (third Monday) hold their monthly meetings at the Clubhouse. The Hughenden Show Society meet at the Club on an ad-hoc basis.
