STAWELL - The new bowls pennant season gets underway tomorrow and Stawell Golf division have a replay of last year's grand final with the visit of Chalambar.
With the home green advantage and a couple of new faces in the line up the score will be closer and Golf will have to be at their very best to have a chance of taking some points from the reigning premiers.
In division (2), Golf Gold are at home to Landsborough and should be too strong for the visitors and will have their sights on maximum points from this game.
Golf Blue travel across town for the "local derby" against Stawell and with the home side only fielding one division (2) side this season, will be very hard to beat and must be considered favourites for this game.
