The club was founded on the 17 June 1971 when a meeting of enthusiastic greyhound racing supporters met in the Red Cross Hall Dubbo to officially form the foundation of the Dubbo Greyhound Racing Club. Mr Harry Drew was the 1st President and Mrs Nancy Milsom, Secretary. Les Dawson, Life Member leased and later sold the club 10 acres of land on 500 Wheelers Lane, with that Mrs Molly Graham mortgaged her house to enable the club to build the track, kennel block, judge tower and lure tower to be able to commence racing at “Dawson Park”. The first race meeting was held on the 23rd March 1974.
The Club became a Company Limited in 1985.
The committee meets bi monthly and general meetings are held twice a year. The club presently has 29 members, a full time Secretary, a track curator and 15 casual race day staff employed. The remainder of the work is carried out by the directors and volunteers. Volunteers play an important role in the operation of racing at Dubbo, adding input from years of experience in racing and the equipment involved
The Dubbo Greyhound Racing Club has a history of highly successful profitable operation over an extended period of time. It has been built on a long and proud history of hard work, strong vision and community support.
Over the years the club has grown and gained a reputation to be one of the best and safest greyhound facilities in western NSW. The club conducts 40 TAB meetings, mainly on a Friday.
