Bowls New Zealand Academy Green Development
Project: Bowls New Zealand Academy Green Development
Client: Bowls New Zealand
Sports Turf Management
The Commonwealth Games in Glasgow were played on browntop sand-based greens. To assist preparation of the New Zealand bowls team for the event, Bowls New Zealand required an academy green in New Zealand that accurately mimics the conditions that will be faced in Glasgow. The Academy Green was located at Pakuranga Bowling Club in Auckland. NZSTI’s role in this project was to design a suitable profile and organise and oversee the construction and establishment of the green. The time frame and budget for the project were tight but the green was successfully established and ready for use.
