Join a Sub Club…
The RSL Fishing Club has been in existence for over 50 years. It has been proud to provide a recreational service to the members of the RSL Redlands and beyond. It is good to see that current club anglers include the children and grandchildren of past members.
Although there is a number of club competitions, the Club has a family focus and looks for opportunities to encourage juniors. There will always be a mix of younger anglers as well as crusty old salts who are expert fishers and are happy to mentor the younger or less experienced anglers.
We welcome active members who will participate in the fishing and social events and will assist with fundraising, working bees, etc. Anglers wishing to join the club must also be members of the Redlands RSL.
Weather permitting, we try to conduct a club fishing trip at least fortnightly. There is usually no restriction on the area that a competitor may fish however, the area bounded by Peel Island in the north down to Jumpinpin and into the Broadwater are most popular zones.
If its expected that winds will exceed 20 knots, the Club Captain will cancel the trip and may replace it with a Land Based and Estuary competition.
Competitions are held on the weekends. During the year, we mix the programme up to include beach trips (usually to Stradbroke Island), competitions with other clubs, freshwater comp and social days.
Some competitions are held from the “Huts”. The “Huts” are a facility on Stradbroke Island which provides a base for fishing as well as for overnight accommodation for members. Apart from comfortable sleeping quarters, it includes an amenities block with hot/cold showers and an environmental toilet. This facility is the envy of other fishing clubs and it is the centrepiece of the club.
General Meetings are held on the 1st Wednesday of each month at 6.30pm in the Redlands RSL Meeting Room. Existing members should attend in order to keep abreast of club issues and prospective members are welcome as observers.
New members are always welcome.

The golf club has approximately 90 members and usually 50-55 people attend when we meet every Friday for 9 holes of golf playing at Howeston Golf Course, Birkdale. Our fixture list runs from February to the end of November each year. New members are always welcome and are required to submit three cards to obtain their handicap which will determine the grade they will play in, either A, B or C.
Our RSL Veterans play once a month on Wednesdays against the Wynnum Manly RSL Golf Club at Birkdale. Both sides enjoy the comradeship playing for an annual trophy, which is presented to the winning side at the end of the year luncheon.
There are various competitions throughout the year: Matchplay, Grade Championships and a couple of special trophy days, and we have 3 bus trips away playing 18 hole games at various courses around Brisbane.
There is also a social side to the club with a chance for members and their partners to get together for some fun and relaxation. These usually occur at the Redlands RSL Gallipoli Room. The year ends with our Annual Dinner in December when all the trophies are presented to the winning members.
The Annual General Meeting is held every January when the committee members are voted in for the year.
To be eligible to join the Golf Club you need to be a financial member of the Redlands RSL. Application forms are available at the Club’s reception and the cost of annual membership is $15.00.
