The Transvaal Automobile Club (TAC), having moved to its current location in 1970, decided that lawn bowls offered a good extension to its sporting facilities but it was not until 1974 that the bowling greens were laid. By mid 1976 the greens were ready for play. The first group of bowlers joined in that year and soon thereafter some members of the Kyalami Bowling Club, which closed in 1978, joined the TAC. In 1989, as a result of the closure of the Sharon Country Club from Edenvale, another 146 members joined. In 2005, the name of Killarney Bowling Club was adopted to replace the TAC brand which had become redundant. As a result of the closure of the Beaconsfield Bowling Club in Victory Park Johannesburg in 2006 due to the sale of their land, a merger agreement with them was struck and resulted in an influx of another 130 members to Killarney. At the end of 2008, the membership of Killarney Bowling Club amounted to 262 members comprised of 173 men and 89 ladies. Killarney Bowling Club operates under the auspices of the Central Gauteng Bowling Association (CGBA), the Gauteng provincial district of Bowls South Africa (BSA).
