Royal Ostend GC, designed by Seymour Dunn in 1903, is the only True Links golf course in Belgium. The club upholds all the virtues of traditional links style golf and is also very aware of its environmental responsibilities. One of the pioneers in Ecological Management Planning, the club is now the only course in Belgium to hold a 5 STAR GEO (Golf Environment Organisation) accreditation. Recent works by EcoBunker Ltd will further bolster the clubs’ environmental credentials, because the first phase of a bunker renovation project has utilised a bunker system that is made of recycled material and which considerably reduces bunker maintenance.
The club turned to leaders in the field, EcoBunker Ltd, after Artificial Grass expert, Guy Schailee introduced their unique bunker construction method. EcoBunker Ltd uses the best quality recycled turf to produce the strongest, resilient and most natural looking bunker edges. EcoBunker Ltd also provided Bunker Construction specialist, Llewellyn Matthews to project manage the construction. It is no surprise then, that when you combine the best design, the best materials and the best construction manager, the results will be superb as these photographs demonstrate.
