The Greater Miami Bowling Association was established in 1937.  The association's largest year for membership was 1984, with 13,800 adult male members.  The most centers at one time was 20.  During the last 70 years, the association has only had seventeen different presidents. After Hurricane Andrew hit South Florida in 1992, many of the bowlers quit or moved to other areas and we have had a steady decline of membership since that time. 

On May 31, 2006, the Greater Miami Bowling Association, Greater Miami Women's Bowling Association and the Greater Miami Junior Bowling Association merged into a single entity, what is now the Greater Miami USBC Association.  This merger followed the national USBC guidelines in merging the local associations into one association.  The merger took effect on August 1, 2006.  Philip Schemer was elected as the first GMUSBC President.  He had served as the last President of the Greater Miami Bowling Association.
