The Club remains closed right now but we hope to open by early July 2020. Bowls Canada and the Ontario Lawn Bowls Association are working with authorities to develop protocols to allow a return to play environment, subject to social distancing and other health and safety measures . In the meantime, the green is being maintained and will be ready for play when the time is right.
WHY WE PLAY THIS GAME!
The Goulbourn Lawn Bowling Club was started in Richmond under an agreement with the Township of Goulbourn. In 1998 it was moved to its present location at 213 Huntley Road, Stittsville and on June 1, 2000 came under the control of the City of Ottawa as part of the extension of city boundaries. In the first year the club's membership was 37 but has grown over the years to 72 for the 2019 season.

Our club offers regular bowling sessions on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday starting at 9:00 a.m. We expect all members to be at the green by 8:45 so that the Draw Master can organize the draw for teams and play can get underway without delay. We also meet most Tuesday evenings as a smaller group to play different bowling games such as 4-3-2-1. Further, our club holds in-house tournaments and fun days open to members only and hosts and participates in various tournaments held under the umbrella of the OLBA. See the Tournaments Page for additional details.
In addition, we have a full training program for new bowlers with sessions held as necessary on non-regular bowling days.
