Kids love wiggling their little toes in the grass! Barefoot bowls are like regular lawn bowls, but you do it without shoes. Its a fun-filled and hassle-free family outing; especially because you can hire a BBQ from the club and bring your grub to cook up for a mid-bowl lunch break. Brunswick Bowls reserve a green for barefoot fun most days of the week, so kick off your clogs and start rolling!
