Capillary Concrete will install its strong and environmentally-sound bunker system at France’s Le Golf National, the host of the 2018 Ryder Cup.
Partially owned by Annika Sorenstam, 10-time major winner, Capillary Concrete is a bunker system with capillary properties that keep bunker sand clean and perfectly compacted. At the same time, it promotes improved drainage to ensure sand remains in place after rain, avoiding costly washouts even on severely flashed bunker faces.
“We have selected Capillary Concrete with special Light Weight Aggregates based on the outstanding performance and strength of the material,” says Alejandro Reyes, head golf course superintendent at Le Golf National. “After several tests and on-site evaluations, it is the best product for our bunker renovation project and will help produce a world class golf venue.”
“Capillary Concrete really makes a difference when it comes to bunker play and maintenance,” says Sorenstam, 2014 recipient of the Golf Course Superintendent Association of America’s (GCSAA) Old Tom Morris Award. “The patented process has proven itself in the world’s toughest climates, is safe for golfers and keeps the sand ideally compacted.”
