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 the fundraising we do is so important to the livelihood of the Club.

The fees we pay to Westshore Parks & Recreation (WSPR) cover the use and maintenance of the Club House from April 15th to September 30th. 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. This includes prepping the greens in the spring by aerating and sanding. All four greens are cut and rolled daily on a rotational basis, they are fertilized and treated to keep them weed and fungus free throughout the year.

NOTE: **Westshore Parks & Recreation (WSPR) in 2024 have raised the percent they increase the yearly fees to 4% from 2%. This applies to all organizations that pay fees to WSPR.

*Bowls BC & Bowls Canada structure their fees based on each club’s membership numbers from the previous year. Therefore, the fee we pay each year will fluctuate from one year to the next as our membership numbers traditionally fluctuate from one year to another.
