Please arrive by 9:30 am to register and pay your $3 for the next session.


DOLLAR SPOTTING

Please note that our Greens have been hit with ‘Dollar Spotting’ also known as the fungus ‘Clarireedia Jacksonii’ this is the reason D green has been closed, A, B & C are also slightly infected.

This fungus is not uncommon and affects our greens most years but not usually this early and is caused by low nighttime temperatures and dew dampness and if it seriously takes hold the greens could be in jeopardy.

All greens have been treated accordingly and D green will reopen Friday June 17, however it can be commonly spread by shoes from contact with other bowling club or golf course greens, therefore  as a precaution we are requiring everyone who comes to bowl to spray their shoes with spray detergent and use the shoe cleaning machine, both are located at the left side clubhouse door, this is MANDATORY for everyone who comes to bowl at JDF LBC.

It will be the responsibility of all members to comply and for BSI Coordinators to inform all league participants accordingly. Please do your part to protect our greens, your cooperation is required and necessary.
