Narrogin Bowling Club hopes new green can be finished by August
Narrogin Bowling Club’s new green should be finished by August as work continues on the club’s seven-rink synthetic surface.
Funding for the $333,000 redevelopment was evenly split between the State Government, Shire of Narrogin and the Narrogin Bowling Club, after the club applied for grants in 2018 and 2019.
Club president Steve Strahan said the new bowling surface would help the local sporting club keep pace with others.
“It’s one of the best (surfaces) going around. Most of the clubs in our league have all got them,” he said.
“I know Williams and Wickepin have got an Excel Pro surface and there are others ... It keeps us up to speed with all the other clubs that we play against.”
The club will soon enjoy a top-notch green without the need to mow or water the surface.
It is hoped the green will be finished before next season, in time to attract new members to the club in its 100th year.
“With the two grass greens there’s mowing and rolling and weeding,” Mr Strahan said.
“With one of our greens going to synthetic it’s going to cut our maintenance in half.
“We want to have it finished before our next pennants season which starts at the end of September ... weather permitting we should be up and running before then.
“This year being our 100th year, we’re having celebrations in November. We can invite some of our new members back to have a social bowl on the new green.
“With the synthetic being down, hopefully that will draw some new people in.”
