A quality synthetic bowls installation is the financial saviour of many bowling clubs. The increased bowling time afforded by installing a synthetic green allows for more than double the membership over a 12 month period. Combined with less maintenance and labour time plus savings on chemicals and water your club will see the savings grow.
Prograss specialises in professional lawn bowls surfaces and offers complete cost effective solutions for both clubs and retirement villages. We offer a complete design and construction service, right down to the supply of bowls mats, scoreboards and courtesy seating.
Prograss greens allow an equal standard of play off either hand and in any direction. The green allows for a variety of speeds to be attained by simple maintenance methods. Normal maintenance, while necessary, is relatively simple and can be carried out by a qualified greens keeper or an enthusiastic club member.
- New Generation Drymax PRO - 12mm (1550gms / m2)
- Pro Sports Super - 12mm (1300gms / m2)
- Master Pro Plus - 15mm (1160gms / m2)
Offers a product with 60% more yarn weight than competitive products. Drymax PRO provides a more stable surface than woven products and requires no stretching, minimum watering and rolling after the initial settling in period, does not scratch the bowls and the new generation non-polypropylene yarn has 2-3 times more UV stability, thus providing a longer lasting surface.
Because of its 1550 gram/m2 density, Drymax PRO does not require the same amount of infill to support the fibres, as does the older versions of synthetic grass. A ballast layer of infill is installed at the base of the grass, leaving a total yarn suface cover for the bowl to run on.
Drymax PRO is endorsed under the Australian Made Campaign as it is a 100% Australian product and is therefore readily availaible. Drymax PRO also has World Bowls Approval and is 100% lead free.
Pro Sports Super
Due to the success of the Drymax PRO with its shorter pile, heavier weight and less infill we have designed an equivalent product using a non-bias polypropylene yarn. Pro Sports Super is ideal for the dryer, hotter areas of Australia, when the extreme temperature in the middle of the day can cause a loss of speed of up to a couple of seconds. The polypropylene yarn handles the temperature variation extremely well.
Once again, with a pile height of 12mm and the same stitch rate the Pro Sports Super requires less infill than the older versions.
Master Pro Plus
A fantastic product and has been installed successfully throughout Australia during the past 10 - 12 years with great success. A non-directional artificial bowls system providing a unique, smooth playing surface and Master Pro Plus is designed to 'stand up' to all climatic conditions and the triple layer backing ensures optimum tuft-lock. Master Pro Plus has a 15mm pile height and requires a higher level of infill than either Drymax PRO or Pro Sports Super.
Installing the synthetic ditch covers to the ditch walls acknowledges the importance of protecting players bowls from damage and provides an aesthetically pleasing look to the green surround. Our standard installation of a green automatically includes the covering of the ditch walls, however, the ditch covers can also be installed around a natural grass green.

TESTIMONIAL - NIGHTCLIFF BOWLS CLUB, DARWIN N.T.
NIGHTCLIFF BOWLS CLUB - THREE YEARS ON ....."........We installed Dry Max Pro about three years ago after assessing many synthetic surfaces, we found that Dry Max was the most suited to our climatic conditions. We have found the surface to have a consistent draw and pace, 14 – 16 depending on the temperature. The surface requires minimal up keep, we hire a groundsman to look after the greens and surrounds working about 15 hours a week." BRIAN THOMAS - PRESIDENT
