Loch Sport Bowls Club unveils new green

A brand-new synthetic bowling green has been unveiled at Loch Sport thanks to funding from the Victorian Government.

Club members and visitors can now enjoy a better bowling experience with a new all-weather synthetic green. The new green was made possible through a $148,500 grant from the Latrobe Valley Authority’s Community and Facility Fund.

The Club can now re-form a team and return to pennant competition status within the North Gippsland Bowls Division, which will be a major boost for the Club’s income and encourage more social activities for the community.

The great advantage of synthetic greens is that they’re more durable, easy to maintain, don’t require watering and are accessible all year round.

Upgrades at the Club will be welcome news for local volunteers, reducing their maintenance commitments and increasing the Club’s financial sustainability.

More than 230 community projects across the Latrobe Valley region have now been supported by the Victorian Government’s Community and Facility Fund, delivered as part of the Latrobe Valley Authority’s $266 million package.

The $20 million Fund is now fully subscribed, with LVA staff continuing to work with individual groups to complete projects already underway.
