HENDERSON, NV (Feb. 1 2018) – Riding the momentum of several high-profile bunker renovation projects, BunkersPlus® will be an exhibitor in next week’s Golf Industry Show in San Antonio, TX.
Representatives of BunkersPlus will be in booth 32094 in the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center Feb. 7-8 to discuss bunker renovation and repair, and the advantage of using the Linebacker Bunker Liner® brand.
“Linebacker is an effective and efficient innovation,” said Kip Wolfe, principal of BunkersPlus, LLC and its sister company, Key Golf Management, LLC. “It is the best defense against the prevention of bunker sand contamination and wash outs. Linebacker’s proprietary formulation is made up of natural materials fortified with eco-friendly polymers that provide strength with longevity.”
One other major advantage? Linebacker is easy to install. “It does not require Certified Installers,” said Wolfe. “The course superintendent staff can install the product using one of our easy to use and affordable Linebacker Qwik Fix bags.”
Jeremie Smith, Technical Advisor for BunkersPlus, says the do-it-yourself kit is a terrific way for golf course superintendents to upgrade their course without major expense.
“Our end goal is to show the superintendent how he can do improvements himself without having to do a big capital expenditure,” said Smith. “Not every course can just drop a million to do full-blown bunker refurbishing project, but they all have a problem bunker or two that need attention. Our Linebacker Qwik Fix is very versatile and simple to use. It definitely fills a void in the industry.”
Several things separate Linebacker from its competition.
o Unique composition of liner eliminates or reduces contamination such as debris, rocks and side slope erosion
o Low maintenance and long lifespan
o Reduces the amount of sand migration
o Maintains lip integrity
o Ideal for all types of course design, including steep faces
o Absorbs golf ball impact
o Cost effective and easy to install, with no need for a certified installer
o Repairs are simple for golf course personnel to perform with Linebacker Qwik Fix
o You can also mix bunker sand into the Linebacker mix to enhance its appearance.
The positive results have been proven at some of the country’s most prestigious clubs.
BunkersPlus has recently completed major bunker refurbishing at several golf courses, all of which sang the praises of Linebacker Bunker Liner.
“There are a number of liner products to choose from, but Linebacker really fit our environment well,” said architect Matt Gogel, who utilized the product during bunker redesign at Tonto Verde in Arizona. “The product is clean, easy to install and very easy to work with and maintain. When adjustments are needed around the bunkers, this product allows the superintendent to do it in house, which is a great cost-saver.”
The same positive results have been realized on the other side of the country.
“We installed the Linebacker Bunker Liner seven years ago on one of our greenside bunkers which continuously washed out, even with small amounts of rain,” said John Curran, Superintendent at John’s Island Club West Course in Vero Beach, FL. “With the steepness of our bunker faces combined with the vast amount of rainfall in Central Florida, washouts are a common occurrence. Not only has the liner cut down on repairing washouts, it has also helped tremendously with the sand not being contaminated from the underlying soils. We have also installed some fabric liners in other bunkers, and Linebacker wins hands down.”
BunkersPlus and its’ Linebacker Bunker Liner product will be represented at the Golf Industry Show next week by Technical Advisor Jeremie Smith, and Business Development Advisors Eric Doble and Doug Long.
