Lawn Bowling

Last Updated: 09-20-18

Lawn Bowling is a sport that originated in ancient Egypt and was very popular more than 900 years ago in Europe. Mr. Berger, the developer of Oakmont, constructed the Oakmont bowling green in 1963. A club for Oakmont residents was formed, and in 1965 the green was dedicated by the Northern California Lawn Bowling Association.
Along with the comraderie, a bowler increases eye-hand coordination, focus and concentration, the strengthening of legs and arms, which helps us keep healthy and young. The club instructors give free lessons all year, at a person’s convenience. A sheet is posted in the club bulletin board, at the green, for name and phone number of people interested in learning this challenging game.
Our daily draw games are at 12:30 PM, or on hot summer days, they begin at 9:30 AM. If you come to watch, we are a friendly group and will be happy to answer questions.
