A New Season

Ardentinny Bowling Green on Loch Long

It  has been a bad winter for the green with a heavy frost and snow putting it in the deep freeze for a month, thereby restricting growth and work on the green.

However the weather has finally relented a bit, so in preparation for the coming season the green has been solid tined and verti drained, then a  top dressing of 10 tons of sand, spring and summer fertiliser, lawn sand and grass seed applied.

During the winter our luxury, “AYE RIGHT ” caravan / changing room finally succumbed to the vagaries of the Ardentinny climate and it was decided that a replacement should be sought. Don Cragg our clubhouse convener, sourced a suitable replacement at Beaver Timber Buildings at Barcaldine. It is now in place and ready for the new season. The old caravan has also been demolished and removed.
