Bunker

The bunker is an exposed location on the golf course.

  1. Enter and exit the bunker cause damage to the bunker edges.
  2. The sun dries out front edge and is a challenge to keep green.
  3. Stones travel from the soil to the sand.
  4. Dried drifting sand or wet sand.
  5. Heavy rain causing rivulets and the sand slides towards bottom of the bunker.

  1. CL 1201  protect the bunker when players, greenkeepers or machines enter and exit the bunker. CL 1201 protect front edge from ball mark damages.

How to think when you consider doing something with a bunker:
  1. Rivulet problem
    1. BLB 2001 if the incline is low and the ball is played from the face.
    2. BLB 4004 if the incline is steep and NO ball is played from the face.
  2. Water problem
    1. Zeobunker preserves the surplus water and feed it back to the sand when needed.
  3. Stone problem
    1. BLB 2001 prevents stones from the soil to reach the sand.
  4. Front edge problem like erosion or ball damaged edge.
    1. CL 1201 tie the edge together and protect the edge against ball marks.
    2. NRT 2202 if you only have an erosion problem.
  5. Back edge problem when people or machines enter/exit the bunker.
    1. CL 1201 strengthen the surface and edge since the weight will be spread in CL 1201.
  6. Sand drifts away
    1. Zeobunker preserves the surplus water and feed it back to the sand when needed.

Note! The ground preparation is like all installations crucial for a successful installation.
