One of the most picturesque villages in the National Park lies in a natural hollow or hole, hence its name. On either side are the limestone headlands of the Tabular Hills, while to the north the land rises steadily to heather-clad Spaunton Moor.

A clear moorland stream, Hutton Beck, splashes and winds its way through the pillowy mounds that form the village green, traditionally cropped by the local sheep. a pleasant place to come for a few hours bowling and exploring the local area.

The Club was opened on Whit Monday May 29th 1950 by Mr F Burnley.

New members and visitors are always welcome.

An annual coffee morning is held in April to which potential new members are most welcome. All new members receive coaching from established, experienced players.

The club competes in a Triples league and a Veterans league each week.

On most Saturdays we play several teams in the Ryedale area on a home and away basis in friendly matches. This provides the opportunity for new members to enjoy other clubs and rinks without the pressure of competition and introduces players to the social side of the game. All friendly matches are followed by a traditional high tea in the various clubhouses which all adds to the enjoyment of the game.

Every Sunday afternoon is an open day at the Club for members and any guests/newcomers.

We welcome visits by local groups, businesses and organisations to have a fun couple of hours to see if any of your members/employees would be interested in taking up bowls and supporting your local club. All equipment will be provided and light refreshments and all you need to bring, if possible, flat soled shoes
