Jesse Dean Cook. Discovering West Vancouver's Most Glamorous Properties.

West Vancouver Lawn Bowling Club

 

The West Vancouver Lawn Bowling Club is tucked away on a piece of prime West Vancouver Real Estate. Most of you will drive not knowing that on the corner of 20th Street and Marine Drive is a facility and clubhouse that is second to none according to its Director (and BC Champion!) Tim Mason.

 

The club was established way back in 1931, and in 1934 the clubhouse was built. Membership is extremely reasonable ($100 a year for first time members) and there currently are just over 200 members. There are two unbelievable outdoor greens that run almost year-round, however, when the weather doesn't cooperate there are indoor mats in the clubhouse (as well as Bridge!).

 

My wife and I went for the first time on Monday to practice for the upcoming Mason & Friends Charity Classic (I'll blog about this event tomorrow). The first thing we noticed is that the balls are not round like bocce, and one side is weighted heavier than the other. Therefore, the sport is a mxture of bocce, golf putting, curling and even billiards as you factor in breaks and strategy.

 

For only $5.00 you can drop in and this is truly a sport for all ages. The facility is licensed (of course) so enjoying a nice cold beer while throwing bowls is as relaxing as it gets. For more information please go to the link below...why not try something new this summer!
