The Deer Park Story

The Deer Park Story

TigerTurf recently completed a flawless new BowlsWeave bowling green for the Deer Park Club. With the addition of an open-sided canopy, the club can confidently plan a busy schedule regardless of the vagaries of the Victorian climate.

Deer Park Club wanted a bowls surface on which international and interstate tournaments could be hosted for some serious, top level bowls. Our woven, non filled BowlsWeave green is well-known for its smooth, controlled roll, used to advantage by experienced bowlers. We installed the BowlsWeave with a pad beneath the surface for comfort underfoot, and for perfect draw and speed. TigerTurf is the exclusive supplier of Green gauge bowling surfaces in Australia and New Zealand, and the BowlsWeave greens surface has been extremely popular throughout Victoria, as a durable, all-weather green surface accredited to international standards. When visiting clubs experience the outstanding performance of a BowlsWeave green, they are sure to tell other players the good news, and TigerTurf has installed many new greens from recommendations such as these.

“It has to be a TigerTurf BowlsWeave green!”

All-weather green supported by stable, free-draining base
TigerTurf constructed a strong supporting base of crushed rock base topped by a layer of TigerBond to stabilise the base so there is no movement. A stable base construction with reliable drainage is a crucial part of every high performance TigerTurf sports turf system. The Victorian climate is famously erratic, with scorching heat perhaps followed by torrential rain,
which can adversely affect natural grass bowls greens.

Canopy above the green, family fun on the green, day and night
The Deer Park club enjoys strong community support, and the soaring, open-sided canopy installed by Lightweight Structures shelters barefoot bowls on Monday evenings for family fun,
social games for local business teams, and Christmas parties bowls competitions as part of the entertainment.

TigerTurf BowlsWeave green an asset for club and community
And that is just what the Club had in mind when it invested in a superb TigerTurf BowlsWeave green and canopy with function rooms for serving food and beverages alongside, as a popular and valuable community asset.
