Council assists local bowls club

Published on 11 October 2017


Council resolved at its Council Meeting on Tuesday 10 October to act as guarantor for the Balnarring Bowls and Social Club Inc, enabling the Club to seek to borrow funds for works to replace one grass green with synthetic surface.

The installation of the synthetic surface will mean the club can offer year-round operation and extend its barefoot bowls and winter bowls programs.

Synthetic greens require less maintenance than grass and can be maintained by club members instead of a professional green keeper.  They require no fertiliser, less water and fewer chemicals.

Modern synthetic surfaces will last for 10-15 years and can be used 365 days per year, unlike grass greens which need to be rested during non-growth periods.
