The feel of the shoes, the crash of the pins … bowling is coming back to Boyne.

The currently dormant bowling alley in town will become the all-new BC Lanes, a current work in progress for Chris and Sandra Nelson, owners of B.C. Pizza of Boyne City.


“We would like everyone to know that the bowling alley will be fully renovated and that we will be reopening the restaurant and bar,” said Chris, Owner of B.C. Lanes. “We will be creating a legit sports bar and grill with 16 lanes of bowling.”

BC Lanes is the bowling alley formerly known as Boyne City Lanes located on M-75, next to B.C. Pizza.

“We intend on having an open house in August for people to come through,” said Chris. “And, we will be officially open in September for fall leagues.”

He added, “We will also be having open bowling on Saturdays and the rest of the open bowling will be determined by league participation.”

In addition to a full grill, BC Lanes will also feature the full menu of B.C. Pizza for patrons to enjoy.

“So far, the response we’ve gotten back from people has been really great,” said Sandra. “Things are looking good.”

She added, “The people that we’ve crossed paths with are excited to get the bowling alley back up and open again.”

“The community needs a place to go here in Boyne City,” Chris said. “We’re excited to give the young people a place to go to on Saturday night.”

BC Lanes is located at 1199 West Boyne Road/M-75.
