The South Oakleigh Club was created in 1952 by a small group of men. Land was purchased and premises were built and upgraded over the years by hard work and fundraising by the members. Originally it was a mens' only club. In 1997 the constitution was changed and women became members.
In 2001 a fire completely destroyed the club, which was rebuilt in 2002. In 2017 the club has been renovated to give an entirely new modern look with a Pizzeria, Sports Bar with state of the art equipment, a new improved dining and lounge area and a revamped function room that houses the famous Caravan Music Club.
The South Oakleigh Club was rebranded in 2017 as the SOCial - Live Local
