Bermudagrass is the DOMINATE choice for Lawn Bowling due to
Bermuda's excellent turf quality and the ability to be mowed low for
faster Ball usage speeds. The hybrid Bermudas such as Tifdwarf and
Tiffine found on modern golf greens are preferred varieties.
They require basically daily mowing and maintenance to keep the
grass at a usable height. Newer seeded varieties such as
can be used, but the maintenance level and quality of play will NOT
be as good as the hybrids.
Bermudagrasses are impacted by their off color during winter
dormancy and the higher risk of plant loss due to winter kill from
low temperatures. Bermudagrass fields must also be overseeded
each fall with Ryegrasses (during a break in schedule) to avoid
playing on dormant / brown fields in the fall. Additional
re-seeding of ryegrass as the season progresses is usually required.
Zoysias grasses are used
also for Lawn Bowling in the transition zone areas. Fine
vegetative varieties (

Newer seeded varieties ( Zenith / Companion) are similar to Meyers

Bluegrass is the DOMINATE choice. Its aggressive growth
and recuperative abilities (rhizomes) make it the # 1 choice.
It is also considered a safer playing surface because of the
cushioning effects of its thatch layer. Bluegrass is though
slow to fully establish, taking generally 1 year to mature.
You can generally seed in spring with use beginning in the fall.
Perennial Ryegrass is often
added to mixtures of Bluegrass for field use, especially for fast
