Bella Italia of the Golden Isles: Bocce League
While Sunday driving through St. Simons Island’s Epworth neighborhood, check out the fun-loving, competitive bocce players associated with Bella Italia of the Golden Isles. They are in full springtime play at Glynn County’s Epworth Park.
You’ll find official bocce game rules posted adjacent to two Olympic-size regulation bocce courts. Meet Rodney, Tony, Mark and Joe, all original league members who beam with pride when asked to share the successful bocce courts construction story. “Glynn County Parks and Recreation brought in a group from Jacksonville for consultation. They did it right and did a good job; the courts are beautiful,” said Mark Gagliano, League Commissioner. “These former shuffleboard courts are now crushed oyster shell bocce courts with stone underneath, so it drains.”
