Georgia venue

The Griffin Country Club in Georgia looks like a great place to play.  Grass courts look like they play like putting greens.  Photos by George Danner.

Danner says…

“…new bocce courts at the Griffin Country Club (October 27, 2007)…lights coming next month.  As far as we know, no other county club in Georgia has bocce courts.”

Looks like a great court and not too far from me.  I’ll try to get my bocce posse to challenge the Gravallese clan to a match.

Jimmy Dunne tells us…

“I encouraged Bel Air Bay Club, a spectacular private beach club in Pacific Palisades, California, to put in bocce courts a few years ago.  They’re literally about 15 feet from the edge of the Pacific Ocean – and are right below a fabulous outside bar and restaurant.”

Lou Ures’ 80′ by 11′ Forest Court in Florence, Oregon.  It features a crushed oyster shell topping.  Lou’s great court and bocce gatherings have drawn the attention of local media.

The Stone wall is a nice touch.  The playing surface is a 3-inch deep “infield mix” — 10% clay, 20% silt, and 70% sand, over the sub-surface of crushed stone.

These people are surely spreading the Joy of Bocce.  Thanks for sending us your pictures.

Have fun!
