The club’s aim is to provide a warm and friendly atmosphere to members and visitors and aid as a positive influence on their physical and mental activity and well-being.
The disciplines of Association Croquet and Golf Croquet are played and all are enjoyed on the three lawns which are surrounded by various flowering bougainvillea, Ipswich’s floral emblem, with magnificent centuries-old shade trees providing welcoming cooling afternoon breezes. The 1930s built clubhouse stands proudly today with most of its original features intact. It is regularly hired by various groups and private parties and is often used in photo sessions because of its quaintness in architecture and stunning garden backdrops.
New players are always welcome and are offered the opportunity to receive instruction and practice before deciding if they wish to join the club. The playing fee includes all equipment. Flat-soled enclosed sports shoes to be worn.
Club Colours: White with Maroon and Gold
