About Our Club

Much more than just a bowls club, Club Macleay is unique for many reasons including our breathtaking views.

Our History

Our Club started modestly in the Island’s Progress Hall in 1968. Thanks to the efforts of its members and assistance from Redland Shire (now City) Council, a clubhouse was built on the north-western foreshore in 1986.

Over the years, this has been extended and improved many times and has served as the Southern Moreton Bay Islands’ premier dining and entertainment venue with a strong community focus. Newcomers and visitors usually form their most lasting and favourable impression of the Bay Islands through their experience at our club.

Club Policies

Here at Club Macleay, we’re proud to provide our members and guests with a venue that is welcoming, responsible and safe—all while offering the very best in entertainment and dining. Our club remains committed to the support and sponsorship of many local community groups and charity organisations.

We ensure all staff are professionally trained in the Responsible Service of Alcohol. All staff are adequately trained in recognising unduly intoxicated and disorderly patrons and the management supports staff that refuse service to intoxicated and disorderly patrons. Whilst minors are permitted in the clubhouse, they must remain under strict parental supervision at all times and must vacate the premises by 8.30pm daily (bona fide dining guests).

Our club offers members and guests the use of the courtesy bus and encourages patrons to use this service.

To reduce the impact of noise on the residents near the club, the following practices and procedures are in place

  • No air conditioning units will be used after 10.30pm

  • No disposal of glass waste between 8pm & 8am
