John Quinn, Author of Performance Bowling Greens, writes about greencraft issues in Bowls International.
He owns and runs the Bowls Central (bowls-central.co.uk) website to help bowling clubs with greenkeeping and club management. The Bowls Central Academy is a popular online training resource for Bowls Greenkeepers.
John provides advice, soil analysis services and devises greenkeeping programs for clubs all over the UK and beyond. His Performance Greens Programme is followed by hundreds of greenkeepers in the UK.
John is one of around 70 Master Greenkeepers worldwide and has worked in the sportsturf industry for 37 years. He was previously a Director at Elmwood College in Fife.
John lives on a farm in upland Perthshire where he is kept busy dealing with the antics of his two Donkeys, two Border Collies and three daughters, not necessarily in that order.
