Durabunker Wall ReactionHow Does the Durabunker Wall React to a Golf Ball?

Maesteg Golf Club, South Wales, UK is the home club of Durabunker founder Rhydian Lewis. It is also the venue where the first synthetic bunker was built. Following the construction of this proto-type bunker, the club continued its bunker renovation project under licence from Durabunker Ltd. This video shows the very first synthetic bunker face built and demonstrates ball reaction against the bunker face. This footage was shot 8 years after the original bunker was built.

The bunkers at Tennessee National were very similar to what I envisioned at the TPC Colorado. Following dialogue with Durabunker, and discussion with the ownership group, it was decided that the Durabunker option would enable us to build sod wall bunkers without the inherent problems that traditional construction with natural turf brings.

I didn’t really have a clear idea of what I wanted to do on our 18th hole. I knew the bunkers needed renovating and re-modelling but was unsure as to what look and style we should go for. Rhydian visited site, shared some ideas with us and showed us some visuals. I loved the idea of rising sand faces meeting a rolling shallow edge and the results really...

It seemed like a good design solution; that got my attention, then we got involved with this new project in Colorado, where they wanted to go the revetted-bunker route. This seemed like the right solution for that environment, too.

It was evident to me that the experience and knowledge Rhydian and the team brought to the project was first class. In fact everything was first class, from communication, logisitics, planning, material, design and execution. It was clear to me that these people really knew bunkers but it was the wider vision about how other aspects of the golf course...

The bunker construction and shaping skills, along with the attention to detail shown by Durabunker staff whilst leading the project at Tennessee National was exemplary. I cannot recommend the product, the staff or the company highly enough.

Bunkers at RNDGC have long suffered from sheep damage and we felt it was time to trial an alternative solution. After attending a Durabunker demonstration at St Enodoc GC, and seeing how good the bunkers looked there, we decided to trial them on the golf course with a small introductory project in May 2015. The results were really pleasing and we received...
