Bucks Barefoot Bowls Bay of Islands + BBQ

Destination: BAY OF ISLANDS

6 min
3 Hrs

With your buddy preparing to walk down the aisle and marry the woman of his dreams, it is your job to prepare him for what is ahead. Think Sunday brunch with the in-laws, Saturday nights on the couch watching The Bachelor and fighting over who stacked the dishwasher last. It sounds just like the lifestyle of your grandparents, right? Well, there is no better way to show him what he is in for than with a session of Lawn Bowls. It’s your Grandpa’s favourite pastime, and from the moment you step out onto the greens, you will understand why.

Have you ever wondered why the senior citizens of the world spend so much time at their local bowling club? You’re about to find out that your Nanna really knows what’s up. After donning your best white apparel (It’s all about looking the part, even if you’ve got no idea what you’re doing!), ridding your shoes, and prepare yourself for the competition of all competitions. 

The Bay of Islands’ “Winterless Weather” lends itself nicely to the sport, which requires you to hurl a few balls down the green with the aim of getting as close to the marker as possible.  We’ll throw in bowls, a mat, a jack and a quick demo if you’re a bit rusty or you’ve been tuning out when your Grandpa recounts his epic Tuesday lunchtime win.

To top it all off, you can hit the greens with a schooner of shandy (hold the lemonade) in hand. The fun never stops at this Bowling Club, where there is also a fully stocked bar and kitchen to celebrate your win or drown your sorrows. Don’t judge these oldies by their looks, you’ll be surrounded by pros who have a lotta hot tips to give. Beers, balls and bucketloads of banter. What could be better? Absolutely nothing.
