The aim of this initiative is to gain valuable insights on the most common challenges faced by golf courses across the UK. This will help you to better understand your bunkers, whilst helping EcoBunker to develop the next line of market-leading bunker technologies.

Who can apply?
In short, anywhere where golf bunkers exist! The objective is to complete 35 bunker audits for our 2023 report, with more planned for 2024. We will present our preliminary findings at the BIGGA Turf Management Exhibition, January 2024.

What if my course isn’t chosen?
If you are not one of the 35 courses chosen, for a limited time we will be offering our bunker audits at the reduced cost of £499.

Why Ecobunker?
Holding Intellectual Property and multiple innovative technologies, EcoBunker prides itself on market-leading in-house invention, engineering and product development. We’re constantly improving the performance and cost-effectiveness of our bunker solutions.
