The Club is set to open on July 13, 2020, in accordance with Return to Play protocols issued by Bowls Canada (BC) and the Ontario Lawn Bowls Association (OLBA). We are excited to get back to the green even though we will be subject to many restrictions. These restrictions are set out in detail on the Return to Play and Coronavirus Protocol pages and all members should become familiar with them. Our adherence to these requirements is critical to ensuring no members contract the virus and that our insurance coverage remains valid. See you on the green.
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 normal bowling opportunities have been modified to conform with the Return to Play (RTP) protocols. Effective July 13, 2020, we will be offering two sessions of 1 hour and 15 minutes duration every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Details on how this will be managed plus a listing of general restrictions can be found on the RTP page. Click on the RTP tab above.
Once we return to normal bowling activities we will be open for regular play 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.
