Green Maintenance and Improvement Seminar Series 2016

Following the success of the 2015 Green Maintenance and Improvement Seminars, as part of its Volunteer Education Programme Bowls Scotland is offering another great opportunity for your club’s green-keepers and any other club volunteers interested in the maintenance of your bowling green to attend this year’s Green Maintenance and Improvement Seminars being run in partnership with Dennis & SISIS, Henderson’s Grass Machinery and Greentech Sportsturf.

How will this benefit you and your club?

This seminar will ensure that you have all of the knowledge and tips to successfully maintain your bowling club green to a high standard.

The Seminar will comprise a number of workshops and presentations:

  •  Session on products such as fertilisers, fungicides, pesticides and grass seed
  •  Outdoor practical sessions demonstrating modern green maintenance methods and machinery
  •  Open question & answer session where attendees will have the chance to ask the experts for further information and advice
  •  Gain knowledge and know the questions to ask if you outsource your greens maintenance to ensure you get the best value for money
  •  Tips and advice from the experts

There will be five Green Maintenance Seminars taking place across Scotland:

To take advantage of this opportunity and to know everything you need to know about the maintenance of bowling greens, visit www.ticketsource.co.uk/bowlsscotland to book you place(s).

Places for the seminars are limited, so book now to avoid disappointment. These events are anticipated to sell out, therefore early booking is essential. There will be no admission on the day to anyone who has not pre-booked through TicketSource.

Here's what some of last year's attendees had to say:

“This is the best £5 I have spent in a long time!”

"I am totally impressed with the whole package, with everyone interesting and informative. Learnt much more

than I was expecting, even from conversations with other participants during the breaks."

"I learned so much and this knowledge has given me the confidence to not only discuss the greens requirements

with the contractor but also be more confident of doing more maintenance myself."
