Welcome! Welcome! Welcome to our 2021 Season!
We are now fully open!! Regular bowling days are Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings; we also have a Ladies Day on Tuesday mornings and Mens Night on Thursdays. For those who are unable to play during the day, we offer evening sessions on Tuesdays as well. Daytime bowling starts at 9:30 but players are expected to be present at the club no later than 9:15. We also plan to have a Saturday session but are still working on the details. You can play as often or as little as you like.
Our Club continues to grow as we welcome new members at any time so don't wait to contact us. No experience is necessary, no special equipment needed, training will be provided and the use of a set of bowls is free to new members, plus rentals are available from your second year on.
We have in-house tournaments as well as hosting inter-club tournaments. For in-house events, members form their own teams for each event. For those who like a little more of a competitive environment, we support any member group that wishes to enter inter-club team competitions by providing dedicated practice times as required, supported by certified coaches. Individual competitive interests are also encouraged.
For 2021, first year memberships cost $75.00. For subsequent years the fee is currently $150.00. We offer a free introductory session where you learn about the game and try out a few ends of bowling. This is followed by a structured training session that is more comprehensive, plus you then get to play for free twice before committing to join.
For the first time, this year we are also offering a Social Membership for $30. This membership has two objectives: 1) to address the needs of players who may require someone to drive them to the green and back and need to wait on premises; and, 2) current or previous members who can no longer play but want the opportunity to continue to see their friends and former teammates on a social basis. There are no playing privileges so the fee is set to cover the cost of insurance liability only. Our insurance policy requires anyone on the property to be a registered member which, by definition, requires insurance coverage. However, we make exceptions to this rule for visitors who want to try out the game and for anyone who is just dropping someone off or picking them up. The Club is not looking to profit financially from this type of membership.

WHY WE PLAY THIS GAME!
The Goulbourn Lawn Bowling Club was started in Richmond under an agreement with the Township of Goulbourn in 1996. In 1998, it was moved to its present location at 2135 Huntley Road in Stanley Corners just south of Stittsville on the way to Richmond. On June 1, 2000 we came under the control of the City of Ottawa as part of the extension of city boundaries.
