Club History

Founded: 1950

Burleigh Heads Croquet Club was formed in 1950 when it was established close to the beach at Rudd Park, Burleigh Heads, on the Pacific Highway. Mr and Mrs Gough were responsible for its foundation. The story goes that they used to holiday quite often at Burleigh from their home in Brisbane and when Mr Gough retired, he wanted to move to the Coast. Mrs Gough, a keen croquet player, said she was happy to do so if he would build her a croquet court, "and so it came to pass".
