Spring 2021 is Busiest Ever for Capillary Bunkers
July 8, 2021


STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN, MAY 12, 2021 – Bunker liner specialist Capillary Bunkers is in the midst of the busiest period in its history, since its foundation in 2010. April and May have seen the firm working on more than sixty projects around the world, and the rest of the year looks set to be just as busy.

Courses involved include Tom Doak’s much-acclaimed Rock Creek Cattle Company in Montana, the Tom Fazio-designed Contraband Bayou course in Louisiana, and RainDance National in Colorado, designed by architect Harrison Minchew with PGA Tour player Fred Funk. In Asia, Capillary Bunkers are being installed at the Discovery Bay course in Hong Kong, while in Europe, Golf Nazionale in Rome, Djursholm in Stockholm and Murrayshall in Perthshire, Scotland. And Africa is not being left out, as the Royal Golf de Marrakech in Morocco is also installing the product.

“Everyone in golf is aware that the industry is very lively as we emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic, with rounds up significantly across the world,” says Capillary Bunkers founder and CEO Martin Sternberg, CGCS. “That growth is being reflected in golf construction, as courses seek to improve their facilities and differentiate themselves from the competition. Because our product reduces bunker maintenance while simultaneously improving their condition, and because it is very easy to install in most weather conditions, it is ideal for busy courses – bunkers can be renovated and be back in play very quickly, to minimise disturbance to golfers.”



1. At the core of our solution, Capillary Bunkers is a patented and engineered polymer-based concrete. It is the only building material that can rapidly drain water while also moving water up. Capillary Bunkers’ cutting-edge, patented technology helps you control water in any climate, season, and soil type, providing better, more consistent playing experiences while reducing costs.

2. Capillary Bunkers is recognized as the world’s leading and most advanced bunker liner, and the most durable bunker construction method. It allows water to flow through the base of the bunker while keeping sand on the faces and preventing washouts, keeping bunkers in perfect shape during any weather condition. Over 800 courses around the world have built or renovated their bunkers with Capillary Concrete, including dozens of golf’s top 100 courses.
