The project: The lawn bowls upgrade project has commenced at the City Oval Bowling Club with the old green removed and the construction of a new turf bowling green. Works on the ‘Shearer’s Green’ involved base construction to support the green, drainage and irrigation systems, perched water table profile and couch turf playing surface. The project is delivered by Sports Turf Curators.
Project status: The green base construction is complete, and the turf surface is currently being established. The project is on track to be handed over to the City Oval Bowling Club in March 2018.
Project cost: $350,000, fully funded by the City of Ballarat.
