We asked representatives from bunker renovation companies: What are the telltale signs for a superintendent to look for that will tell him his golf course needs a bunker renovation? Here’s what they had to say.

Phil Hamm | U.S. Account Manager, SandMat Bunker Liners-Milliken

Every superintendent will have to address a bunker renovation. Two obvious signs indicating the need for renovation would be washouts and/or standing water. Ideally, you want water moving through the sand to avoid these issues. Geotextile bunker liners allow the water to move quickly through the sand, significantly reducing washouts and eliminating standing water caused by clogged drain lines.
