Try the game of bowls on a World Class Green

The fastest and most perfect green in Northern California, because it is the newest.. and it is artificial turf. And nestled in a little redwood grove which often gets a gentle ocean breeze.


A 120 foot by 120 foot grass or artificial grass surface constructed of a well drained compacted substrate layer leveled to within 1/8" level every ten foot of surface where the bowl when rolled upon the surface travels at a specific speed to meet world standards for tournament play
