How they survive.....

Bob Angove, Director of the Bendigo Bowls Club

“We’ve got four grass greens and they are all nice and green,” Mr Angove said. “They each get an hour of water, usually twice a week. “We’ve got the recycled water, of course, which helps.”

Mr Angove said it took up to 10 hours to water each green, using almost 100,000 litres of water.

“In the hot weather we use a bit more, especially through the 40-degree days,” he said. “It’s low-cut grass so it burns easily - you’ve got to keep the moisture up to it. “We’ve got one tank that holds 93,000 litres and the other holds 22,000 litres and they are nearly empty once you water a green.”

Until 2007, the club was forced to use town water on the greens, but Mr Angove said the connection to recycled water made a huge difference.

“We are lucky we don’t have to use town water because we’ve got the recycled water,” he said. “Before, the secretary of the bowls association had an agreement with Coliban and it gave the club so many megalitres a year. “Now the croquet club can use our tanks and keep their greens going as well.”
