Asheville hosts Pinehurst in friendly match
Updated: Apr 4, 2020
Asheville and Pinehurst bowlers are all smiles after their match.
In early September Asheville hosted seven lawn bowlers from Pinehurst for a series of matches over two days. The Pinehurst group was keen to show their verve on the state-of-art artificial green. The fast pace of the green played in Asheville's favor as they won 7 of 9 matches. Congratulations to all who participated in this first of what is hoped to be an annual event.
On another note, Asheville has received inquiries from Canadians heading to Florida and Floridians going north about making detours on their trip just to bowl on the Asheville green. Yes, the green is that good and worth the extra drive.
