Two of golf’s great names collaborated to create Hartsbourne Country Club in the 1920s: renowned golf course builder Fred Hawtree and 5 times Open Champion, J H Taylor.
Unsurprisingly, the result is an excellent test of golf, built partly on imported soil created from the construction of the original Wembley Stadium. Not resting on their laurels, the club had been considering a bunker renovation project for many years, and after obtaining design guidance from a leading golf course architect, they turned to EcoBunker Ltd to deliver their vision.
The club wanted natural looking bunkers that would sit effortlessly in their mature parkland setting, but at the same time they also desired the lowest maintenance burden possible. EcoBunker Ltd provided a full turnkey solution, following the architectural guidance, but specifying and installing the range of features that would deliver the benefits the club were looking for. Specific features included the Ecosward bunker liner, the EcoBunker Advanced edging system, a fully automated subsoil bunker edge irrigation solution and high performance china clay bunker sand.
