Started by 11 foundation members in July 1958, Doyalson – Wyee RSL has grown from strength to strength to make it the club it is now. With well in excess of 30,000 members the club boasts facilities that provide the community with dining, entertainment, sporting fields and a place to relax and meet with friends.

From these humble beginnings the club has continued to trade through the decades gaining many loyal members and extending its offering to the community.
