The club was formed in 1917. The land was leased until 1972 when it was decided to buy the site and the land was purchased for the sum of £300.

Until 1977, the club was called Kingsbridge Bowling Club, but the name was changed to Kingsbridge Town Bowling Club at the AGM in November 1977.

Originally, the green consisted of 3 rinks but in 1986, the club approached South Hams District Council in order to provide an extra rink. The land was leased from the Council and the fourth rink was brought into use in 1988.

The original Clubhouse was erected in 1930 and extended to its present form in 1995.

In 2010, the club provided new changing rooms and toilet facilities after raising the sum of £12,000 from various fundraising activities.
