Golf Croquet & Ricochet:
In August 1903 a meeting was called of people who might be interested in the game of croquet. There was a revival of the game in England at that time. It became very fashionable and the interest had spread to Australia. This meeting was held in the large upstairs ballroom of the Café Alexandra here in Toowoomba. There was considerable enthusiasm and fifty six joined as members.
There were no made lawns but by permission of the Cricket Club they played on part of their grounds which was very lumpy and bumpy and also had a distinct slope. In or about 1907/08 it was decided to have real lawns and the Council granted use of the land now held by the Club.
