What more could you ask for from a bowling club



Argyll Bowling Club

We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website and find the information contained useful.  If you come to Bournemouth please pay us a visit.  If you're planning a Bowling Tour to Bournemouth you may want to include our club as a venue.   We have all the facilities for your touring side and we can usually accommodate up to TEN RINKS of players.


We have two well maintained greens, a cafe and a licensed bar.


Our club is located on the West Overcliff Drive in Bournemouth where we enjoy panoramic views of the Isle of Wight and Old Harry rocks.  Also close by are the sub-tropical gardens situated in Alum Chine.  This is such a lovely location in which to play the game of bowls.  There are also facilities for the disabled.


We have a full programme throughout the season which includes our regular weekday and Saturday league matches, plus the touring sides that play against us in the friendly matches that also take place during the week.

We also hope that everyone that participates in our games thoroughly enjoys themselves by not only enjoying playing the game, but also renewing old acquaintanceships and making new friends.  This is what the game of bowls is all about, and at Argyll, we hope that our visitors take home happy memories of our club win or lose.


There is a cafe on site where you can purchase meals, snacks, drinks, ice creams etc.

Our licensed bar has helped us to accommodate our guests after the game as a pleasant addition to the usual tea and biscuits, and this is where we can carry out a post mortem on the days play!


We can be found at:   Argyll Gardens, West Overcliff Drive, Bournemouth, BH4 8AB - 01202-767395
