The Warragul Story

The Warragul Story

The Warragul Bowls Club knew it was time the existing sand-filled turf was replaced by a better playing surface. The members were strongly in favour of installing a high performance TigerTurf BowlsWeave green.

 Impressive Standards Of Play

Impressive Standards Of Play

Our BowlsWeave green surface has become very popular amongst the Victorian bowling clubs over the last few years. When tournaments are held at clubs with TigerTurf BowlsWeave greens, the visiting teams have been impressed by the standard of play, the roll and trajectory produced on the smooth woven surface.

TigerTurf BowlsWeave

TigerTurf’s BowlsWeave is a non-filled woven surface manufactured by world renowned Greengauge Surfaces Ltd. Greengauge is a truly world-class company, selling in to all major lawn bowling countries. BowlsWeave is marketed exclusively in Australia by TigerTurf.

Optimal Performance

Full Project Management from Construction to Installation  TigerTurf was engaged to manage the entire  green upgrade project for the Warragul Bowling Club. Our construction team began by removing the existing sandfilled turf, before excavating the top of the pre-existing base and building a new free-draining, technical base to support the high-performance BowlsWeave green.

Correct Base Construction is Essential for optimal performance A strong, well-constructed and free-draining  base is vital to the long life and standard of play in any turf installation.

TigerTurf construction teams have expertise in  building the correct turf systems for each of our synthetic grass products. How do we build the base? Crushed rock is bought in, compacted and laser levelled to ensure the green area is completely flat. TigerTurf then apply TigerBond to stabilise the surface of the base.

This free-draining silicate material bonds and stabilises the surface below the  underlay and carpet. Installing the BowlsWeave to get the correct Green Speed TigerTurf supplied and installed the underlay and the TigerTurf BowlsWeave surface.

The installation process involves sewing, stretching and pegging of the BowlsWeave  surface. It is critical, at this point, to  maintain the correct tension to ensure the green plays at the correct speed.  We thoroughly enjoyed being part of  this project; the team at TigerTurf gained enormous satisfaction from the photos of the Warragul members at play on the picture-perfect TigerTurf BowlsWeave green.
