Better Billy Bunker- helping ease the burden

Since the start of the recession in 2008 two things have become a certainty in the Golf world: Maintenance staff will continually need to do more with less and Golf Clubs will need to work harder to attract, and, keep Customers.



Course Managers have long lamented the level of criticism they get from Golfers regarding Bunker conditioning- they are after all a hazard that should exact a penalty-right? Well in an age where customers expect more for less this may be right but is it sustainable….

When one considers that 30% and more can be spent (or wasted, depending on your viewpoint) on Bunker maintenance, the advent of Liner solutions to reduce this burden should come as a surprise to no one.
