Burwood District Bowls Club is extremely pleased to announce that we will be converting their famed bent-grass Warner Green to tifdwarf during the coming season.
The existing surface has been down since the Club's inception in 1947 (albeit with regular renovation) and the replacement of the bent-grass rates alongside the Clubhouse renovation five years ago, as the most significant project the Club has undertaken.
President Mike said that " ... the conversion to tifdwarf enables the Club to function as a truly all-year-round facility. The loss of four months of each year on our only available floodlit green is unsustainable in the business sense and Burwood moving the Warner Green to tifdwarf is essential to the Club's viability from both the financial and bowling perspectives."
As a result, for the first time in our history, the Warner Green will not be closed over the winter months save, some allocated times for fertilising and maintenance work, and will be available for corporate bookings, 'barefoot' bowls and regular club events. It is anticipated the green will be taken out of service in late November with the renovation's scheduled start.
All credit to our Club's forward looking Board of Management for initiating this development.
The Club also wishes to extend its appreciation to Sports Australia for the awarding of a grant from the Move it AUS - Community Sports Infrastructure program to make the project feasible.
