Are you a backyard bocce player without a back yard to play in?  Well, then, grab your set of bocce balls and come on out to Lake Hodges Bowls Club.  We have a nice flat surface for you to play on to your heart's content.  Sure, it's not a formal bocce court with side bumpers, but you won't have to contend with ruts, bumps, and gopher holes! 

Okay, so you're interested, right?  And you're wondering about the details -- days, times, cost.  Here's the scoop: 

- You can come anytime we have scheduled social bowls games (Wednesday, Saturday, Sunday at 1:00) for $5 per person.

- Wanna be able to play at other times?  Consider joining our bowls club and you can have access at any time.





Showing Our Colors


Time was that when people watched lawn bowling, it was pretty much like seeing a black and white movie -- people dressed in white, rolling black (or sometimes brown) elliptical "balls".  BUT, if you've taken a look lately, you'll see bowls (that's what we call the balls) in a wide assortment of colors.  This photo shows the eye-popping array of colored bowls that were placed on our green for a recent triples game.  WOW! 


And there wasn't much show of emotion during the course of a game either.  If you want to see some emotion, check out the Grand Finals from the 2012 US Open.  Link here.


While we still wear whites for some occasions (like tournaments), team colors are now encouraged so you can tell who's on which team.  (What a concept!)  For social games, Lake Hodges Bowls Club doesn't require people to wear whites at all.


Colored clothing, colored bowls, animation on the green -- it all makes for a much more interesting view.  Oh, we still observe the traditional courtesies and sportsmanship that bowls is known for, but if you like some pizazz in your sport, we've got it all!  Come out and see for yourself.  Better yet, come try it.
