The endeavours of greenkeepers and their support teams directly affect the experience of all participants. Bowls England has a duty to give them the necessary support and guidance.
Greens Maintenance Bursary
The Bowls England Greens Maintenance Scheme helps members of affiliated clubs to obtain a Greens Maintenance qualification.
All successful applicants will be reimbursed up to 50% of the relevant course fee, up to a total of £200 per affiliated club, per year. The cheque will be made payable directly to the affiliated club which is supporting the application.
Payment will only be made when an applicant has successfully completed their course and have completed the application form, which can be found here, along with providing copies of invoice and relevant certificates.
Please note that due to expected demand only one application per year (ending 30th September annually) will be supported per affiliated club. Claims must be made within six months of the qualification date on the certificate.
