Case Studies

Stratford on Avon GC – December 2020

Founded in 1894 and relocated to the current site in 1928, Stratford on Avon GC was originally designed by JH Taylor and FG Hawtree.

Following due diligence by Ckub Captain David Gladwin with Chris Bromley Course Manager, the club selected BunkerMat Gen2 for their full course bunker renovation.

Designed by Jonathan Gaunt and all works undertaken by the main contractors, MJ Abbott, Whitemoss were asked to complete the BunkerMat installation.
With 10 bunkers to be completed by Christmas 2020, Whitemoss and Abbotts are looking to leave phase1 by Friday 18th of December.

The new bunkers certainly transform the appearance of the course and will be enjoyed for many years to come.

“Have to say what a great job you guys have done for us. @GolfStratford. Great work ethic combined with attention to detail and having all the right kit. Proves we made the right decision to select you for the project. Thumbs up for @jonathangaunt for his expert input too”

Albatross Golf Course

Chris Horn of HB Golf contractors working with Jonathan Davison Create Golf undertook the complete renovation of all bunkers at Albatross Golf Course Prague. The course is a European Tour Venue and hosted the Czech Masters.

The club, HB and Create, selected BunkerMat Gen2 as its preferred bunker liner. Jonathan had infact only recently used BunkerMat on a similar project for Carlisle GC in England.

Approximately 14000m2 were supplied over December 2020/ January 2021 making it one of the top 3 projects supplied by Whitemoss. Course Superintendant Ben Lovett was instrumental in recommending BunkerMat having seen it installed and in play at local rival club, The Oaks.

Over a Spring and Autumn period, 7 1/2 weeks in total, Whitemoss supplied and installed 14500m2 of BunkerMat into approximately 100 bunkers. The bunkers here are vast, dramatic and challenging.

European Golf Designs Robin Hiseman was the course architect and construction was managed in-house by Euan Grant and current Course Manager Callum Wark. In 2020 the course hosted the Justin Rose Series, first of many Events it’s certainly constructed to host.

The Oaks – PGA National Czech Republic

Following discussions between Andy Law and Troon construction and head of Agronomy, Jordan Fairweather, the order was placed for an initial 9 holes that turned into a total of 21000m2 of BunkerMat for the whole 18 hole Kyle Phillips designed course.

“It is truly spectacular and the bunkers very imposing in size and detail.”

Following installation by a local company and only weeks after sand placement, the area suffered 55mm of rainfall in a 24 hour period. The BunkerMat worked wonders and the bunkers were virtually unaffected bringing praise from Jordan on how effective a liner BunkerMat is.
