Renmark Club 1909

The Renmark Club has been the focal point for the local community since 1909. Renmark’s early English settlers built a traditional ‘Gentlemen’s Club’, where they could enjoy each others company, and read the latest news from London, as they sat around in comfortable leather chairs, and were waited on by a steward. Women were banned from the club until the early 1960’s, and even then they had very limited access. From the 1970′s the focus of the club started to change to what is now a mixed membership with an accent on family participation and visitors most welcome.

Lawn bowling was first played in Renmark on greens established on the hotel side of the club and in 1926 the Renmark Club Bowling Club was formed. Annual carnivals were popular state events over the years, however the greens were removed and the river frontage opened to the public in 1997.

The redevelopment of the Club in 2006 provides a venue that now has a wider appeal to the community, with an enlarged function/dining area & bar, greater access and usable external spaces maximising the views of the Murray River. The Renmark Club is central to Renmark situated on absolute water frontage.
