We play Golf Croquet, and are inaugural member of Goldfields Croquet Association, and welcome players from other clubs to join us when they visit Bendigo or enter our social days which will be advised via flyers emailed to clubs. If you wish to be added to our mailing list please email us. Our summer heat policy is that BoM predict that evening before that the maximum temperature will be 32C or above we start at 8.30pm. If the prediction is 36C or above play is cancelled for the day.

Our club is available for hire along with tuition for all your work events, special parties, meetings etc. We delight in coaching school children. A number of secondary schools bring their classes (PE or alternative programs)nfor games throughout the year. There is always room for more. Call us to make your enquiries.

What a fun day. The bride to be was all smiles with lots of friends, food, fun and frivolity. We really enjoyed showing them how to play croquet. Lots of laughs as you can see by the photos. Check out the bride to be ready to try a jump shot.

Individual successes

Brian Loughran won his section to represent NDCA in the regional championships 2019 and did extremely well to win 7 games in all. We have re started our own club championship which was won by Peter Martyn 2017 and Brian Loughran 2018/19.

Our official re-opening

We finally organised our official date to thank everyone in the re-opening of our club. So many people helped us in so many ways after the devastation of the fire in May 2015. A huge thank you to everyone involved. We were especially excited to have the Governor of Victoria, The Honourable Linda Dessau accept our invitation & were delighted when she played a ball through a hoop to mark the occasion. Champagne bottles were popped & a table full of niceties was enjoyed by all.

Social Day 10th April 2019

Another successful social day. Congratulations to the overall winner, Barb Thorne. Runner up Irene Murdoch and winner of the gourmet hamper raffle, Kenny Logan. We had entries from 7 clubs which included Fred and Barbara from Wonthaggi.Thank you to Bunnings-Epsom, Hume & Iser for donations and to all our members for all your help.
