Over the years, since its creation in 1874, the finest golfers in the country have played the links at Seaton Carew including the legendary Harry Vardon, J H Taylor, James Braid and several other Open Champions. Dr Alister MacKenzie lengthened the Course in 1925 to 6,500 yards.
The Brabazon Course has hosted the competition of the same name on more than one occassion, just one of a series of R&A and EGU Events held over the years. The Micklem course was used for the Carris Trophy in 1996, when Graeme Storm pipped Justin Rose by a single shot.
Amidst this tradition and history, Seaton Carew Golf Club have also demonstrated their progressive approach to golf course construction and maintenance by embarking on a bunker renovation project using the patented Durabunker construction method. The project began in 2012 and has continued at a steady pace since that time.
Durabunker Ltd continue to work with Seaton Carew GC, Managing Director, Rhydian Lewis having developed a strong working relationship with key decision makers at the golf club. In November 2014 the club announced the continuation of their on-going bunker renovation project with work commencing on another 8 bunkers through the Autumn.
We are delighted to continue our relationship with Seaton Carew and look forward to working in partnership with one of the finest links courses in the land.
The labour and maintenance savings made through Durabunker allows for considerable man hours to be diverted to more essential works on the course. The overall effect is to present the course, particularly the bunkers, in pristine condition. In my 40years at this course, using the Durabunker method to build bunkers, is the most spectacular change made and as head greenkeeper
We have developed a strong business relationship with Rhydian over the years and continue to receive a professional service. Using Durabunker as a method of constructing bunkers offers impressive medium and long term financial savings/p>
