Not a brilliant morning weather wise, but delighted at how the course has held up to an inch of rain since we left yesterday. Greens drainage and capillary concrete bunkers are performing well.
When 38mm “floggs down” overnight & 55mm over 3 days & then you come in to find your decision making, choices of product and planning have been vindicated 😎😎😎
Clearwater Bay Hong Kong after Super Typhoon I rest my case for Ecobunker & Cappilary Concrete use 👍👏👏
“Keeping the white silica bunker sand and the orange/brown desert sand separate is essential if bunker performance is to be maintained, and this requires a quality liner. We need separation to keep the integrity of our bunkers. CapillaryFlow was the only option to fix this”
“Before we started, around fifty per cent of our bunkers simply didn’t drain,” he says. “In the first three months after we renovated, we had 22 inches of rain–we went from an incredibly dry summer to an incredibly wet winter. There is not a bunker out there that has held water or washed out, or retained any silt. They have been the best addition to this golf course.
We are going to save $50-70,000 a year just on labour from the new bunkers, and there will be another $12-15,000 from not having to replace sand. For us, that is a big, big difference.
In case you wanted to see capillary concrete vs 17 year old bunker solutions. It nots a fair fight at all! These bunkers are about 100 yards apart. #capilaryconcrete

After 250mm of rain, no washout, no nothing. The Bunkers we didn't redo, a complete mess. Washed out, right down to the sand mat, completely depressing for the staff. After this, we will redo all our bunkers with Capillary
if every bunker in the golf course had Capillary, it would make life so much easier.
We’ve had three big rainstorms – three inches overnight – since we finished the installation, and we have come in the following morning and found little or no washouts in our new bunkers,” says Scott. “Member reaction has been great. I’m getting compliments every single day about how they look and play. It’s probably too early to say this is the best decision of my life, but I’m pretty close to it.
During my travels I’ve seen all the liners and from talking to my colleagues, it was clear that the Capillary Bunkers stood up the best.
I like the fact that the concrete is a homogenous two inch layer. Other products seemed to depend much more on the contractor to get the consistency and depth of the product right. With Capillary Bunkers, I knew that as long as it came out of the truck properly mixed, it would give me that solid two inch layer.
We had ten inches of rain over the course of thirty days in June, and seven of those inches came down in two days,” says golf course superintendent Carlyle Merring. “The bunkers stood up to it really well. We don’t have a problem with them washing out. The integrity of the product is holding strong – not failing in any sort of way, and the bunkers are functioning really well. Generally we can get our bunkers back in play in one morning after a big rain event.
We want to do this one time and not have to worry about going back in to replace anything. And the Capillary sytem is very easy to install – there are very few restrictions about suitable weather, or time of day, and so on.
After 20 years of weathering and maintenance our bunkers were in need of renovation. We have a natural style of bunkering and wanted to keep that look intact while installing new sand and drainage. Using Capillary Concrete on our steep faces allowed us to stabilize and drain the bunkers while keeping the design and look intact. We have experienced less washouts and better playability since the Capillary Concrete installation. Our members have been very happy with the consistency of the new bunkers that are now playable sooner after heavy rainfall
I have had great experiences with Capillary Concrete, so it was an easy decision for this project. I have found the Capillary Concrete to deliver very good results in terms of sand quality, and the easy of installation just closes the deal as far as i’m concerned. I really can’t say enough about it.
I dug up the sand today in one of our bunkers. I am turning it into a chipping area by green #7. After 3 trouble-free seasons and 2 winters I can testify of zero damage to my Capillary Concrete. I strongly recommend this product.
Never a wash-out. I spend about 10 hours per week on my 45 bunkers
As a staff, we needed to find a way to retain moisture in the faces of the bunkers so golf shots would hit and release to the bottoms of the bunker.
All of our bunkers were completely redone with Capillary Concrete back in 2014. We got 100 inches of rain the last 2 years and for the last 4 to 5 years we have not had to replace any sand. We have less labor fixing washouts… we have to rake our bunkers fewer times… so it saves us a substantial amount of money for labor.
We have not had to repair our bunkers at all, and, incredibly, the original sand is still in them,” Miles says. “Since 2014, I have bought one truckload of sand, and that was for the bunker in our chipping green – which gets blasted out by players. Our bunkers have flashed sand faces, but our minimal washout issues only occur where water actually flows into the bunkers. When we get a big rain – and eight to ten inches of rain is not uncommon – we have to wait for the drainage infrastructure underneath the bunkers to catch up with the bunkers’ ability to move water. But it always does, and then the crew can prepare the bunkers for play again.
We have recently made the huge decision to renovate all the bunkers at Avondale Golf Club, utilizing Capillary Concrete™ as the primary bunker liner and the patent pending drip line irrigation technique on the steeper faces. We are extremely impressed with the effectiveness of the product.
It’s been a game changer for us.
Since installing Capillary Bunkers, we are seeing superior conditions, the moisture levels seem to be staying right where we need them — never too dry or too wet — and our members have absolutely raved about them. The difference between our Capillary Bunkers and the ones we haven’t renovated yet is night and day.
We have selected Capillary Bunkers with special Light Weight Aggregates based on the outstanding performance and strength of the material. After several tests and on site evaluations, it is the best adapted product to our renovation project in order to produce a world class golf venue
