Ladybank G.C. Phase 1 Bunkers Complete

Tuesday 31st March 2020

Phase 1 of this project included the bunkering on holes 4 & 8 and the whole back nine holes.  Each bunker area was stripped and completely renovated to install a new bunker style that embraces and enhances the heathland character of the course.  Every bunker was constructed using a modern liner to ensure consistent playing conditions across the course. Bunker approaches and green surrounds were also recontoured as part of the work to create larger run-off areas around greens increasing shot variety and adding to the challenge and character of the course. The talented and dedicated greenkeeping team at Ladybank G.C. stepped in after the shaping and liner installation was completed to finish off the bunkers and re-turf the stripped areas.  The new bunkers will be back in play by the end of April 2020. 

We are looking forward to returning in the autumn of 2020 to complete phase 2 of the project which will see us tackle the remaining bunkers on the front nine in readiness for the club to host Open Qualifying in 2021.

Below is a short video showing some highlights of the work....pre bunker sand install!
