Why does Michael Becker hate? I feel sorry for you sir that the only way in which you can feel better about your own game is by negating the skill of anyone else.

Went on Saturday night 9/19, with ample lanes available (10 or so of the 40 lanes were taken by the “Pot O’ Gold” League). After all these years, Dublin Bowl is still a top-quality facility with synthetic lanes, albeit high prices for open play ($5/game) and league bowlers ($4) in prime-time. Still, very much recommended. Mike and company at the very-busy front desk were very cordial. And J.R. at the Pro Shop is top-notch at what he does…I purchased my “spare ball,” which looks like a huge, plastic golf ball (made by Cal Bowling Supply), there recently.

This is the second time I have tried to get a lane at Dublin Bowl and can’t allow it because of league bowling. Now I understand there are league’s at bowling alleys, but to shut down 40 lanes is ridiculous. They are losing money and losing customers because of this!

Michael Becker..I’d like to see this 300 game, u may be able to spend 350 on a ball but you still need skill to knock down a pin or pick up a split, ive never known someone to bowl a 220 that rolls 12 gutters either, you are the kind of negative jerk that makes me sick im sure that i speak for everyone else when i say, have fun golfing, you will NOT be missed on the lanes…also customer service at earl anthony is not that bad, give ’em a break they deal with alot of jerks, kinda like Michael Becker here.

I have never bowled at this establishment, but with Earl Anthony’s name on it I only Expect the best.

One of the class houses, treat senior league very well. Few of us bowl 300 games and that blowhard who says it is routine sounds like a typicsl loud mouth from New York. The equipment works well, the desk is reasonably cooperative,and the pro shop is excellent in their new digs. A but thumbs up.

Listen to you people. You are exactly the type of bowlers that I often describe.. If you cant roll your fat arse off the couch, throw fireballs up a chute spanning 12 to the gutter and average a ridiculous 220 then you’d rather not bowl at all.. And go around trashing anyone who thinks the game has gotten too easy.. I have more 300 games than grades you’ve completed in school losers.. I made a comment and I stand by it.. Recreational bowling has become a game for fat out of shape drunks.. I dont need to get over myself as you put it.. I retired. Now I play golf.. No matter how hard they try, they cant make golf any easier.. And as far as why didnt I turn pro? Because when the opportunity was there, first prize was $12,000.. Whoo hooo!! Up until the mid 1990s, there were few people on tour who made more than my paperboy.. Sorry, my sights were set a bit higher than that. Good day!!

michael becker, you are contradicting yourself. You bash the house shot, then say you like it. In the words of michael becker, “roses are red, violets are blue, im a schizophrenic, and so am i.

Regarding that strange, off-topic “rant” by Michael Becker, I’m sure if your old broken self were still able to bowl you would not complain about the wall shot. If you score well on a wall shot you wouldn’t just be like, “well it was a shot so I don’t deserve that.” You would take it and act like you’re 400x better than everyone else. BYE.

The staff including the front desk was great when I was ther two weeks ago. The lanes are incredible. I bowl in his bowling center back in 1989 when his lanes were on wood and no computer scorers back then. I am from San Antonio Texas. I met Earl Anthony back in July or August 1989 in his bowling center. He shake my hand and I told my sister that I would never wash my hand.
AND this is a left handed bowling center. I am a left hand bowler and I average around 190+.
I would love to work in his bowling center.

I love Dublin Bowl. The lanes are extremely well maintained and are especially nice since the major renovation last year. I find the staff to be very courteous and helpful.
The only gripe I have is that at times there is no one manning the snack bar even though it is supposedly open. And, I’ve been there on many occassions when the bar shuts down while there are still a lot of people out on the lanes and it’s only 10:30 at night. That doesn’t present much of a problem for me because I don’t eat while I’m there and I’m outta there by the time the bar service gets cut off or I’m not longer partaking. But, I’ve seen more than one person get very upset that the house is open, the lanes are on, but the bar service gets cut off before they actually close. I don’t think that’s right. Other than that, I highly recommend Dublin Bowl. Also, it would be nice if baby-sitting was still offered. There are times when lots of little kids are running around screaming with their parents nowhere in sight. We’re talking Friday nights when adults go down to bowl in leagues and the parents just let their little ones run amok. Well, nothing is perfect, but this house comes darn close to it. The Pro Shop is awesome and there are some of the best bowlers in the Bay area that bowl at Dublin Bowl. There’s something for everyone there no matter what type of a bowler you are. They do a great job at organizing and running leagues for Junior bowlers, Seniors and people that are either physically and mentally challenged or both. Dublin Bowl makes everyone feel welcome. It’s my favorite house around.

To Michael Becker: If you’re so awesome, how come you didn’t turn pro???? I’ve never even heard of you yet you sound like you are the Bowling God. Get over yourself.

I am from Buffalo, NY the bowling capital of planet earth. I am 42 and retired after 300 games became more common than a baby split conversion. I retired with 4 perfect games shot with balls that are virtually worthless. The game has been destroyed by resin balls designed to get fat useless complaining idiots off the couch and into the bowling centers. Well, they accomplished just that. Everyone who can fog a mirror now averages 210. Whooo hooo.. Earl’s Dublin bowl is a center I had the PRIVILAGE of bowling a few games at back in 1982. The lanes are very nice and the shot is condusive to high scores. That’s the way it was anyway. Who cares how the help treats you? They are the “help” for crying out loud. They turn on the lights and serve you beer while you bowl. Stop being so thin skinned. You got what you want dont you? You now have $350 bowling balls that any idiot can throw 27mph and average 210 right? What is there to complain about? You can have absolutely no skill whatso ever and still average over 200 what do you possibly have to complain about? The HELP is rude to you? Wipe your tears and go shoot your 685 and be happy for crying out loud.. When I bowled I would rather bowl in a house where the lanes are WALLED regardless of how rude THE HELP was.. Sheesh. Grow up.

Me and a budy of mine are young bowlers (19) and we feel the staff treats us very rude upon every visit to the establishment however we love the lanes so we are stuck in quite a jam… if their staff improved their additude twards the youth of the sport they may be capable of aquiering more people and money to their establishment

I used to bowl there but the staff is rude to anyone they do not know. If they find out you bowl at other establishments they are rude to you as well. I can’t go back for league.

There’s no point in keeping the place open when there is no one in there lol. There’s no reason to say that is a downside because when you aren’t there it doesn’t matter.

Wood approach with synthetic lanes. Not an easy house–more for the serious bowler. The only negative is the staff will close the place down early if there’s nobody bowling.

Comment Date: 3/17/2005 Name: Realist
One of my favorite places to bowl. Lanes are nice, people have always been helpful, and all around decent atmosphere. I don’t agree with the person that complained about pre-paying for games. Off the top of my head, Diablo, Kentwig, Double Decker, AMF Shoreline, and Pinole Valley all make you pay before hand. If you don’t like paying ahead of time, check out places like Paddock, Danville, Delta, Clayton Vally, and Cloverleaf. I see no difference in paying before or after. Anyway, really have a fun time when I come here.

I have a new Bully Ball that was just destroyed by bowling at this establishment. It was returned with scratchs, dents, and a coughed sections. I had to take the ball to my pro Fran at Danville bowl to have it re-surfaced.

New equipment and facilities are great. Where is the customer service that supports trust and shows respect to your customers? You have to pay upfront to use the lanes. Great, you are the first bowling lanes that collect for games prior to play.
