Clarence River District Match Committee called at battling club, Wooli during their annual greens inspection tour. The Committee were taken aback by the state of Wooli’s greens which resembled cow paddocks.
Fortunately, having experienced Yamba Green Keeper, Graeme Brown, present during the inspection proved invaluable. Graeme was more than happy to advise the Wooli volunteers and offered assistance to remedy their problems. After fixing and adjusting their very tired mower and suggesting the purchase of various new parts, this crucial piece of equipment was quickly back in top working order.
Graeme then put forward a course of renovations and improvements that the Club should undertake to return their green to a quality standard the District expects for all competitions.
In the meantime, in true country style and neighborly concern for a fellow club, Brooms Head’s green-keeper, Blair Littlechild, volunteered to visit Wooli on a regular basis to support the Wooli volunteers.
Clarence River District today, is very proud to say this small Club took the recommendations on board and outlaid the necessary funds to complete all that was suggested.
Wooli Bowling Club is now the very proud owners of a green that can match any club in the District. Well done, Wooli, you have done your Club and the District proud.
