Work has commenced on the proposed new beer garden and entertainment area at Ettalong Bowling Club.

The $800,000 upgrade is due for completion in February 2022.

Club CEO, Tim McGavin, said the works would help provide family-friendly areas at the club.

“This investment is all about providing outstanding, family-friendly facilities to our residents and visitors,” McGavin said.

“Moving forward in a post-COVID-19 world, outside hospitality will be an expectation of venues, so this development futureproofs our club and strengthens our position to respond to future pandemics.”

Vice-President, Ken Dixon, said the beer garden will be a fantastic vantage point to see all the action unfold on the four bowling greens.

“Ettalong Bowling Club hosts regular tournaments and championships for its bowling members; this new beer garden and entertainment area will be a phenomenal viewing spot to watch all the action and enjoy a social drink with colleagues and friends,” Dixon said.

“Community is the most important principle of this club, and we want facilities that all residents and visitors can be proud of and enjoy.

We hope to attract a more diverse section of the community and be a welcoming local venue,” Director, Kerry Watkins, said.

Member for Gosford, Liesl Tesch, made a visit to the Club to see the progress of construction and plans for the finished project.

She said the new areas will be an exciting addition to the Club and will “breathe fresh air into the facility.

“Families and residents will enjoy a modern and family-oriented dining experience which will include features for children to interact with too,” Tesch said.

Ettalong Bowling Club is located on Springwood St, Umina Beach, and open from Monday to Sunday. Live music on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
