Bunker Maintenance Construction Course News
Willow Fork Country Club in Katy, Texas, will undergo a complete bunker renovation this spring. The renovation to the course and its bunkers will not only provide an immense aesthetic value but bring a more playable to the course, thus offering a challenge to members of all skill levels.

As part of the renovation involving Fusion Golf, bunkers will be mapped using Ensight. Ensight is a 3D technology mapping company that will provide accurate measurements of the bunkers’ square footage by creating a 3D surface map of the bunker floors, minimizing material waste and helping provide accurate budgeting information for the ownership group. The renovations scope includes the reshaping of existing bunkers, and installation of new drainage, bunker liner and bunker sand. The sand will be provided by Texas Sports Sands. The bunkers will be rebuilt incorporating a drainage and liner system provided by Zline Bunker Systems. The lining method increases the speed at which water flows through the sand and over the lining, minimizing washouts and contamination while reducing maintenance costs and producing superior consistency. The bunker renovation commences mid-May, and is scheduled to be completed by mid-September 2017.

“This bunker renovation is a part of our continuous effort to deliver excellent playing conditions, and our commitment to our members.” said Randy Jones, senior vice president of CBIGG Management.
