Enjoy this popular sport on magnificent greens where you can also barefoot or carpet bowl ...
Bowls is now an extremely popular sport for all ages on the coast. Club Sapphire in Merimbula has first-class greens for bowling six days a week, fully-lit for twilight and night competition. In summertime barefoot bowls is by appointment. The greens are maintained in pristine condition for year-round social bowls and tournaments held during winter and autumn. At Tura Beach Country Club you can be spoilt by views to the ocean headland and you can take to these sensational greens or head indoors to carpet bowl. Both venues offer full facilities for members and their guests.
