Capillary Concrete Bunkers

EIGCA Bronze Partner Capillary Concrete renovate bunkers at Whitecraigs GC

Another proactive Golf Club joins the growing number of courses that are choosing Capillary Concrete as their bunker liner of choice.

Whitecraigs GC, a classic parkland course in the Giffnock suburb of Glasgow, is a club that has a rich history. Originally laid out by William Fernie in 1905, alterations were conducted under the supervision of James Braid.

Following a successful trial of two bunkers in March 2019 the decision was taken to renovate the remaining 43 bunkers with Capillary Concrete to be installed in all. Work began in October 2020 and was completed by December.

“It was an easy decision to make after we had seen the performance and reduced maintenance of the two trial bunkers,” explained course manager Peter Hall.

The club will now be able to enjoy many years of well-draining, consistent bunkers with the added benefit of reduced maintenance and less sand replenishment due to the properties of Capillary Concrete.

With a return on investment within 3 years and a life expectancy of 20+ years and the back-up of the industries only 10-year ‘Performance Guarantee’ why would you choose anything else.

Capillary Concrete can either be installed by the club’s own staff over a long period or by one of the many great contractors we work with, either way full support and training is provided. The liner arrives at the club pre-mixed so just simply needs transporting to the bunkers and laying, a typical area of 125m² can be completed in under 90 minutes.
