Greens Improvements

Greens Committee at Work

The committee has worked diligently the last 4 years improving the soil quality under the green surface by using the Dry Ject aeration process. The soil samples sent to Ohio confirmed that we have “turned around” the health of our sub-surface grass at the root level.

The full day project started with delivery of 220 bags of Silica Sand. Our Greenskeeper started the process of Verti-Cutting the existing Bermuda Turf to open it up prior to spreading and dragging the sand that was brought in to fill in any low spots. This was followed by spreading 15 bags of Profile Greens Grade soil amendment. The South Green will be done next in late May after the North Green Bermuda grass has filled in and been mowed.

Lawn Bowls USA

Heather Stewart, Member of Lawn Bowling Hall of Fame, is immediate past president of Bowls USA. She and her husband Jerry discovered tournament at Laguna Beach Lawn Bowling Club in 1991 and decided that this would be a game that they could both enjoy.

In the years since joining, Heather has had the opportunity to give back to the sport her time, at her club and both at the Division and National level. She's had the privilege of bowling for Team USA, and competing overseas in numerous events.

Laguna Beach remains Heather’s home club and we're thrilled to have her!
