Two Ontario bowlers love the Asheville green

The Asheville green's reputation is spreading and bowlers are willing to make special trips and detours just to play a game on our world-class green. Two Canadians returning home from the SE Open in Florida added a couple of days to their trip to visit friends and to try their hand on the new Asheville bowling green. They were not disappointed.
Martin Foxhall and Ron Geniole from Ontario had high praise for the facility. Foxhall said, "It's the best artificial green I've played on. It plays so well and draws like it should." Geniole concurred. He likened it to "the closest thing to a billiard table" and said it "should be the standard for bowling greens." P.S. Foxhall and Geniole won 1st place in pairs at the SE Open against 23 other teams.
We hope local people will also want to give the new green a try and learn this wonderful game, which like golf is enjoyable to play but just frustrating enough that you want to come back and do better!
