LAWN BOWLS: Bolstered by some savvy recruitment the results are starting to roll as well as the bowls for Caloundra.

The iconic Coast club has suffered a bit of a lean spell in the men's divisions of late but that looks like becoming a problem of the past.

Welcoming back long-time Caloundra member Wade Mutzelburg after a short stint with Club Kawana, Caloundra Bowls Club has also managed to recruit young gun Joel Andersen as well as a number of Kawana players who made the move a little further south down the Nicklin Way.

Mutzelburg and Andersen combined to win the State Champion of Champions competition last year and Andersen recently returned from Cabramatta, having headed south to further his bowls career.

Mutzelburg said the results of September 10-11, which saw Caloundra take out the men's District Pennants titles in First, Third and Fourth Division was a watershed moment for the club.

"The last time Caloundra won a Pennants title was back in 2002, back when the club had premier league,” Mutzelburg said.

But the recruitment of a number of high-quality players has seen the rest of the club's senior ranks strengthen as a result.

Mutzelburg admitted they hadn't entered a second division side this year, unsure of just how strong they would be.

"The club's rebuilt this year,” he said.

The senior men are packing plenty of punch in more ways than one.

Former Olympic boxer Brad Hore is also among the First Division men's side that will head to Maryborough this weekend for the zone play-offs against two other districts.

If successful, the Caloundra men will play the championships against the eight best teams in the state.
