These are the regular activities of our club.

Monthly Meeting

Newport PROBUS Club meets at 10:00 AM on the first Thursday of each month from February to November inclusive. Meetings are held at the Newport Bowling Club, Palm Ave, Newport.

To allow time to sign in, please arrive by 9:45 AM. 

On the first Thursday in December, a Christmas Lunch replaces the normal meeting. 

The March meeting each year is our Anuual General Meeting. Committee positions are declared vacant and election of a new committee takes place. 


The golfing group meets twice a month on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays and play at different courses in the area. No need for a golf link handicap. These are relaxed 9/10-hole games, no competitions and no swapping cards.

Exaggerated descriptions of each player's actual performance are encouraged over an after-golf drink.

See Newport Link newsletter for details of upcoming rounds.

Barefoot Bowls

Come along to the Newport Bowling Club from 2pm to 5pm on the second Tuesday of each month for a game of social bowls. The only requirement is flat smooth soled shoes or bare feet so we do not damage the greens. Cost is $10 with bowls supplied. No previous experience is needed as help will be on hand to guide you with the game. A social and fun activity.

Cinema Group

A flyer giving film times along with an Expressions of Interest Sheet will be available at our monthly meetings.


Cinema outings are held at one of local cinemas on the Wednesday morning following the monthly Probus General Meeting. On each occasion we will endeavour to choose the earliest screening available for the selected film, allowing for coffee and a chat afterwards.


Please contact me with any suggestions - your input would be greatly appreciated.
Looking forward to seeing you.

Film times, choices and venues will be announced at our monthly meetings.

Walks vary in length and difficulty from a couple of kms to 7 kms ++. They will give you an opportunity to walk at a leisurely pace, chat to friends, enjoy wonderful scenery and improve your fitness. So come along.
