Fieldstone GC is a private country club featuring a Championship Hurdzan Fry Course. Nestled on 184 acres in the rolling hills of northern Delaware; Fieldstone is a scenic Par 71, 7000+ yard course featuring dramatic elevation changes, bent fairways, numerous sets of tees per hole, and old-world bunkering.
"Nicknamed "Lisa's heart" after club founder Lisa Dean Moseley and it's heart shaped designed, this bunker is a showcase for members to show their guests and is talked about by many golfers long after playing the course. However, the cost to maintain this bunker is enormous and rebuilding it every two years was becoming financially draining to the club. Therefore, I suggested to our owner's representative that we do away with this bunker and convert to a standard bunker with natural grass banks. We were all set to convert the bunker when I discovered Durabunker being used at another Troon managed course. I did a financial analysis of Durabunker vs a standard natural grass sloped bunker. While initial costs are higher using Durabunker, cost of maintenance is greatly reduced due to zero mowing, zero fertilizing, pesticide applications, resodding, watering etc. Our ROI would be met within a matter of years"
"While only being completed for a short time now, the bunker has not moved a bit and member/guest comments have been outstanding. The main question I receive now is when are we going to do more bunkers with the Durabunker material, as opposed to 'what is going on with bunker on #18 that is falling apart', which I was hearing before working with Rhydian and Durabunker"
