Druids Heath GC, a typical parkland setting in the UK (shown above) is an example of a course where Durabunker Director, Rhydian Lewis, was responsible for the re-design of a bunker complex on the 11th hole, a project that was met with universal approval by members and decision makers alike. Working with Chairman of Greens, Jason McNamara, Rhydian was able to guide the design aspect of the project and spend time onsite to oversee the construction process. Our team offer this same service to all clients and have also worked in partnership with several renowned golf golf architects. We will spend time consulting with golf courses in an effort to find the most appropriate solution to requirements at all times.
At Frosaker Golf and Country Club, Sweden, we are working in partnership with ex Ryder Cup player now course designer, Pierre Fulke to re-design the entire bunkering on one of Swedens top 10 ranked courses.
The design work carried out by Rhydian on our par three 11th hole, and the subsequent renovation work has transformed the hole.
The input on site from Rhydian and the Durabunker team was very valuable. We walked the course together discussing design styles and the changes we believed were necessary well in advance of the project. Rhydian has a natural leaning towards design and was able to interpret my ideas, offer valuable comment and ultimately, with his team, produce the results we were all hoping for.

The service offered by Durabunker was highly professional in every aspect, the advice and guidance given over a significant period on site was also invaluable to the success of the project. I would highly recommend the product, the team and the company as a whole

I am committed to being involved on site at every project we undertake. I not only enjoy that aspect of the business but strongly believe it is one of my fundamental responsibilities as a director of the company. I believe it is key to ensuring the highest standards of service are offered in every facet of a project. I have been priviliged to work closely with the likes of Pierre Fulke and Nicklaus Design as well as other architects, and have personally built bunkers dating back to the very first prototype in 2009, using our patented construction methodology at courses such as St Andrews Links, Berwick on Tweed GC, Tennessee National GC, Golf Club Budersand and St Enodoc GC. I want to bring that experience to every project we undertake, both prior to commencement, during construction and following project completion. I'm very proud that our client feedback is so overwhemingly positive and as a company we will continue to do everything we can to ensure that every client experiences the same service.
