They could use a little help…

14 12 2009

I came across something new (at least new to me) this weekend.  During a trip to Sarasota I found the Sarasota Lawn Bowling Club’s facilities located at 810 Tamiami Trail, Sarasota, FL‎.

Bowling greens might provide a new research opportunity

I have to admit, I was unfamiliar with lawn bowling.  I had visions of pins and 12 lb balls being thrown on the grass, which were quickly followed by the thought that it would leave one heck of a ball mark to repair.  As it turns out, the sport has a long history, dating to the 13th century. My main concern with what I saw was the quality of the turf (now I’m wishing I had taken pictures).  The bermudagrass looked like it could really use some help.  You can see in this Google Maps image that this is probably the norm.

It looks like the bowling greens could use some help!
