Visiting Bowlers Fees:

Visiting bowler privileges presently discontinued while adhering to Covid-19 protocols.

Membership Fee Schedule:

All fees we collect are allocated to the organizations noted in the schedule table below. The Juan de Fuca LBC does not keep any of these fees for their own use. That is why the grants we apply for and fundraising we do is so important to the livelihood of the Club.

For 2021 season:

  • Bowls BC is once again not charging a yearly fee due to Covid-19, while Bowls Canada is charging a fee and at the reduced rate of $10.00.
  • Westshore Parks & Recreation (WSPR) has agreed to not increase their fees due to our limited access to the Club House, therefore the fees are the same as in 2020. Normally they increase their fees by a minimum of 2% each year.

The fees we pay to Westshore Parks & Recreation (WSPR) cover the use and maintenance of the Club House from April 15 to October 2nd. This includes repairs, housekeeping, utilities, washroom supplies etc. WSPR Greenkeepers also maintain all the greens and the surrounding areas and are responsible for the greens throughout the year. The greens are prepped in the spring and made ready for our use by April 15th.  All four greens are cut, rolled, and maintained daily on a rotational basis, they are fertilized and treated to keep them weed and fungus free throughout the year.

We want to thank our members for their loyalty and the incredible support they showed last year by paying for a full membership to ensure our Club existence and sadly in a year where our access to the Greens were extremely limited due to the Covid regulations and Protocols. Next year the fees will return to their normal fee structure and hopefully with unlimited bowling once again.
