Design Styles

Durabunker can be adapted to various design styles and is suitable for parkland, heathland, moorland and traditional links style courses. Our patented construction method has been utilized on bunker renovation project as well as new builds and leading architects have commissioned it's build on a variety of different types of courses. A selection of our design styles are shown below:

Traditional Pot Bunker

The iconic links style pot bunker is ideally suited to the Durabunker design. This classic links bunkering is in keeping with the traditional look of a championship links course. The steep angle of gradient of such bunkers coupled with exposure to natural elements and natural erosion is extremely problematic to most courses, requiring many man hours to maintain and often needing reconstruction on a 2 to 3 year cycle

Durabunker overcomes these problems, offering a 20+ year life design and providing a consistent appearance that does not deteriorate over time. Durabunker offers stability and durability that results in a sustainable method of building sod wall or revetted bunkers that even in climactic extremes.

Shallow Edge

Durabunker is a flexible product which can be used to offer fixed shapes, design integrity and edge stability even for shallow bunker edges. It offers architects and golf courses alike, the opportunity to build more complexity into bunker shapes without the worry of inherent maintenance burdens that come hand in hand with this type of design.

"The maintenance savings on edging work alone is fantastic and allows me to divert labour to other areas of the golf course. We have built both deep faces and shallow edges since 2012 and have had no stability issues and no sand contamination from crumbing edges" Neil Shawcross, Course Manager, Baden Hills GC, Germany.

Deep Rolling Edge

Deeper rolling edges are often utlized on greenside bunkers. Ensuring permanent fixed edges with the option of varying vertical height where required, offers an aesthetically pleasing yet entirely functional solution to the problem of bunker edge erosion.

"We wanted to create greenside bunkers with slightly more intimidating features so that they stood out from our fairway bunkers which we are building with shallower edges. We achieved that by designing hybrid bunkers with higher sand faces and deeper rolling edges. It has worked beautifully here at Frosaker Country Club" Christer Ral, owner.

Durabunker with Liners "Fully Sealed Bunkers"

The Durabunker construction method has been successfully utilized in conjunction with many different liners including Better Billy Bunker, Blinder Bunker Liner, Bunkermat, Capillary Concrete, and our own artificial grass liner. We have experience of working with most recognized liners and have collaborated with other market leading companies to offer clients 'Fully Sealed Bunkers' which require virtualy no maintenance.

Fairway Bunkers

Fairway bunkers with shallow edges can also be built using our Durabunker method. Whether it's waste bunkers with shallow edges or higher rising sand flashed faces with rolling edges, Durabunker can be used to stabilize and offer fixed edge designs.

"Fairway bunkers having shallower edges with the synthetic material being used to define the shape and produce clear and crisp definition and greenside bunkers having slightly deeper revetted edges. We have built these types of bunker at Frosaker GC since 2012, when we introduced 9 new holes, so we are 100% confident of the stability and durability that Durabunker offers. They also look terrific and weather to become even more natural looking. So much so that it's virtually impossible to spot that that they are artificial!" Pierre Fulke, Golf Course Architect and former Ryder Cup player
