Eltham Bowling Club replaces its old TigerTurf green with a world class TigerTurf BowlsWeave green

The new TigerTurf BowlsWeave green at Eltham Bowling Club looks superb in its setting of gum trees and garden greenery. But for the players, it’s all about the consistent roll and draw of the green, and the comfort underfoot during play.


The Eltham Bowling Club committee asked us to replace the existing TigerTurf surface with the latest BowlsWeave green surface, giving the club a world-class bowling green. This is our premier synthetic bowling surface with more draw and finish than other synthetic green surfaces. In fact, our BowlsWeave is the surface currently being used for the Australian championships played at Club Sapphire Merimbula.

TigerTurf base systems are sustainable and effective
A bonus for the club, after lifting the old green and removing it from the site, was that the original TigerTurf base was in great condition and still drained effectively. This meant we could use the existing TigerTurf base with just some minimal preparation. The original investment in the well-constructed base and green was still paying dividends for the club, saving a considerable sum of money.

We had only to re-screed the surface lightly with regulating sand and finish it with a tack-coat of TigerBond. TigerBond is a free-draining silicate bonding the surface beneath the underlay rather than laying over loose metal.

TigerTurf comfort pad improves BowlsWeave performance
The underlay is a pad we always use with the BowlsWeave green surface. It adds a layer of comfort for players and enhances the performance and longevity of the green itself.

BowlsWeave greens are dense and resistant to UV light
The latest BowlsWeave Green surface is thicker than earlier versions and is manufactured with more UV retardant than previously, design improvements that improve the performance and durability of the green. The BowlsWeave woven surface provides the best performance for players throughout the bowling world, with accurate, consistent speed and roll in all playing conditions.
