OUR GREENS

LBC boasts four international standard Tifdwarf greens each comprising seven rinks which can cater for up to 220 players at any one time.

The club’s professional greenkeeper, Brad Porter, is a well-known identity both within South Australia and beyond. In addition to his commitments at Lockleys, Brad also works with other clubs who strive to attain the quality of the playing surface that Lockleys presents.

Brad joined the greenkeeping staff at Lockleys in 1990 at the age of 18 years and completed his apprenticeship in 1994. He assisted in preparing the Lockleys greens for the 1996 World Bowls Championships. Brad moved to other clubs to widen his experience, and in 2008 returned to Lockleys to prepare the greens for the 2012 World Championships.

All greens are floodlit and available for night-time use and electronic scoreboards service all rinks. Green speeds consistently run at 14 – 15 seconds.

Greens are closed on Mondays to enable the maintenance to occur that is required to keep them operating at peak performance.
