I've introduced this topic to the latest edition of my site for two reasons: firstly, to provide information for those visitors who are involved with greenkeeping; and secondly, for the sake of 'completeness' in the broader subject of 'books on bowls'.
I have to admit that my interest in books on bowling greens is minimal, but research into bowls books has inevitably led to the discovery of a few relevant titles, and so far I've found eleven books (one an ebook) and one video that deal exclusively with bowling greens and these are listed below. There are perhaps a dozen or more books that include sections on bowling greens as part of a more general work.
