Proud of our history, prepared for the future
Our original Club was located in a now demolished building on the corner block of Mathew Street and Coronation Avenue, currently the site of our outdoor carpark. On Melbourne Cup Day in 1980 we opened for trade as the Nambour War Memorial Services Club at our current site but did not officially open until February 1981.
In 1984 we became an Incorporated Association and changed our name to RSL Services & Citizens Club Nambour Inc. Our change in name and structure allowed us to open membership up to the local community.
In February 1992, following the State Government’s decision to legalise gaming machines, we installed 23 machines and became the first Club on the Sunshine Coast with gaming machines. At that time, we had 1,800 members, five permanent staff and 10 casual staff.
The growth of trade that followed allowed our management committee to instigate an extensive renovation and refurbishment program. A successful upgrade was completed in 1994 and by this time membership had expanded to 2,900 people and approximately 35 staff. Further extensions and renovations were completed in 2001, 2003, 2006 and 2016.
We evolved our food offer with the opening of Mosaic Kitchen + Bar and developed our passion for fresh ingredients and modern menu items. Our service style has also transformed with dinner incorporating table service and sophisticated dishes.
Our facilities also include a Kid’s Room and Youth Zone. All areas enjoy Wi-Fi and our state-of-the-art function space caters to the community’s need for a large professional venue to hold corporate events, community events and unforgettable weddings. We now employ over 90 staff and have a membership of approximately 22,000.
In 2018 we became a company limited by guarantee, named The Boldbridge Group Ltd. Our change of structure and name have allowed the expansion and development at Sippy Downs to take place.
Our board of directors have a long term-plan in place that will see the Club progress and expand to keep pace with the growing region and Sunshine Coasts’ needs.
