Is the complex just for Bowling?
No, although this website is the outdoor bowling club, the complex is known as “Stonehaven Recreation Grounds Club” (SRGC). There are 4 separate sports clubs within:-
• Outdoor Bowling Club – April to September
• Outdoor Bowling Club (ladies) – April to September
• Indoor bowling Club – All year
• Tennis Club – All year
• SRGC social membership (2 bars) – All year
Are the greens open to the public?
Absolutely!! Both the Outdoor and Indoor greens can be used by the public (Occasionally closed for competitions).
What should I wear to The Club?
We recommend Smart but casual
Do I have to join a team, or can I play for fun?
You can come down & just play with friends as the outdoor green is open to the public (Most of the time). The team competitions are for our members, but there is a HAT night (organised bounce game) on a Monday night @ 6:15pm & most week mornings at 10am that non-members are welcome to join in. If you wish to become a member you can play bowls as competitively as you like, or just play “friendlies”.
Are there any rules I should be aware of?
The club has it’s own traditions and of course there are the rules of the game, but if you come down one of our members will be more than happy to talk you through everything you need to know.
Do I have to bring my own bowls or can I rent from the club?
There is no problem if you need to rent bowls from the club.
Do I need to book in advance or can I just turn up?
A lot of members chose to book a game in advance, although if there is a space you will be more than welcome to play!
When are the greens open?
The Outdoor green is open from April to September @ 10am to noon, 2pm to 4pm & 6pm to 9pm (weather & light permitting). Very occasionally the greens are closed for a large competition.
The indoor green is open all year round & opens from 9am to 9pm. From October to March there are quite a few league games on but there are usually spare rinks.
