Club Construction and Refurbishment Guidelines

Building new clubrooms or refurbishing or extending existing facilities is one of the most important projects a bowling club will undertake.

Most bowling clubs operate on a limited budget, so it is critical to ensure any investment is made wisely and to to minimise risk of issues.

Construction projects involve significant costs which can escalate or be wasted if badly managed.

A construction or refurbishment project is going to offer a challenge for most bowling clubs. It will require new skills and ways of working.

The key to any refurbishment or construction project is sound planning.

Bowls Australia developed the document below in 2015 to help guide clubs through the process of club refurbishment/construction.

Bowling Green Construction Guidelines

The overall purpose of this resource is to provide bowling clubs with comprehensive construction guidelines to guide them through the process of installing or resurfacing natural or synthetic greens.

It is a significant investment for any bowling club and this construction guideline is intended to assist bowling clubs (their committees and administrators) to make informed decisions and increase the ease in which the process can be navigated, with the aim of achieving a high quality green on completion.

By adopting the methodologies and techniques described in this construction guideline, bowling clubs across Australia will be confident that their new or resurfaced greens will be of a standard that the bowling club will be proud of for many years to come.
