Graeme is “King of the Greens”
Kyabram’s Greenkeeper Graeme King has been honoured by the Greenkeepers Asociation of Victoria. He has come equal second in the Greenkeeper of the Year award in Victoria.
Graeme was nominated for the quality of his skills in producing excellent greens at the Kyabram Bowls Club. His skills and his greens were examined and assessed by the Executive Members of the Greenkeepers Association.
Graeme’s greens have been selected for State Events, Group Games and Goulburn Valley finals for both the Midweek and Saturday Pennant Finals.
Recently the Victorian Under 18 side travelled to Kyabram to use the Kyabram Greens in their preparation for their games in NSW in October. Coach Matthew Flapper and the players were delighted with the surface quality and the run of the greens.
Congratulations to Graeme for his expertise and hard work from all the players who bowl on his excellent greens.
