In the late 1940’s, members ran fortnightly dances in the Pakuranga Hall to raise funds for a Clubhouse. This building, a steel ship’s cabin from the “Southern Cross” was hauled from Cockle Bay, where it had done service as a holiday bach and the expenditure of $200, plus a good deal of voluntary labour, converted it into a practical clubhouse. It stood on the site now occupied by the Howick Sea Rescue. A concrete-block gear shed was added and later, a top storey starting box.

In 1958, when there was talk of beach improvements, the Club decided to replace the existing clubhouse with another on a new site. Bottle drives and manure drives, etc. were organised and, with some pre-paid subscriptions, enough money was raised to have the current clubhouse built. Much of the foundation work was performed by members! A grant was received from the “Golden Kiwi” lottery to enable the Club to complete the furnishing and develop the basement. It was officially opened on Sunday November 12th 1967.
