Performance Bowling Greens

Bowls Central is the home of Performance Bowling Greens,  the bestselling eBook that is consistently praised for introducing Bowls Clubs and Greenkeepers to John Quinn’s simple but effective greenkeeping program. John teaches natural greenkeeping practices that encourage the fine bent and fescue grasses. Based on hands on experience and a deep understanding of turf and soil ecology, John’s methods produce healthy, high performance greens that are a joy to maintain and less costly for clubs.

“After devouring all the information and following your advice I have members coming to me and saying the green has never looked better or played better! Some of these are the ancient stalwarts who have been members for years, visitors are also full of praise. Woods are rolling smoothly and the pace is good -thanks again! Barry”
