Now Celebrating Our 110th Year

The Club, located in Beacon Hill Park, is central to downtown Victoria and the neighbourhoods of James Bay, Fairfield, Rockland and Fernwood. Our fully equipped clubhouse is flanked by two greens containing 16  rinks.

If you are interested in trying out lawn bowling  drop by our club at any daily draw and a member will be happy to help you throw some bowls and learn about the game. Or if croquet interests you, then come visit us on Tuesdays, Thursdays, or Saturdays between 10am and 3pm and a member will be glad to show you how to play.

If you would like to bowl a social game on a Friday evening with some friends, contact Peter Gilchrist.

Why Play Croquet


The following is an excerpt from the May/June 2018 issue of
YAM magazine

Lawn Bowling

It was once forbidden by monarchs like Richard II (who feared its impact on archery), but lawn bowling is alive and thriving in Victoria, where you can play it at least nine clubs, including Beacon Hill Park’s Victoria Lawn Bowling Club, now in its 109th year. Not just for seniors, it’s now attracting the martini and millennial set too.
