We have had a bowling green here at Pentre Mawr for many years now. Recently we have been unfortunate enough to have many problems with it. As we have had such a good year we have decided to invest a substantial amount into its redevelopment. Work will begin on Monday 22nd September to remove 8″ of soil. The bad soil will be replaced with a high quality growing medium called ‘Root Zone’ – this will enable to new turf to establish itself and to provide the best environment for the roots to grow. Once the root zone has been graded to the correct level to give a crown we will then lay the best quality bowling green turf. This together with a professional automatic sprinkler system will give us one of the best quality bowling greens around and yes you are right, it will remain free to use by all of our customers. A program of friendly competitions and get togethers is being put together for next year. Please keep an eye out for regular picture updates.
The following is a photo taken now :
Hopefully we will have some good weather to carry out the ground work!!
Well work is well underway:
