Entertainment Mayfield - NSW, find places to dine and relax from our extensive range of listings with Pubs and Clubs.
The Registered Club now known as Wests Mayfield has had as many names as associations. The Club was built on land adjacent to Stewarts and Lloyds for employees as part of ‘Project Recreation’ which was launched in 1937 by the company to provide recreational facilities for activities like soccer, league, tennis and bowls. This was the first complex of its kind by a major Company in Newcastle for the benefit of all its employees.
The Club underwent many transformations adding more sporting facilities like squash courts, as well as a bowling club with dining, function and bar facilities. The Recreation Club was one of the few clubs to own its own holiday complex, six self-contained holiday units at Manning Point near Taree.
In February 1982 the name of the Club was changed to the Tubemakers Recreation Club Limited because of the change of company name. Under this banner the club again underwent major extensions and renovations. The clubs restaurant, function room, auditorium and existing lounge areas were refurbished.
In 1989 the club and Tubemakers disassociated by mutual agreement to assist the Club to expand its membership. The change of name from Tubemakers Recreation Club to Club Phoenix giving the club a new identity, with the phoenix being the clubs logo.
Continued renovations including one of the first synthetic bowling greens in Australia and the building of the multilevel car park put the Club into a financial position where amalgamation was required.
