Bunker construction

Bunker Construction

Soil Base

Water enters sand then stops at clay.

Water must move horizontally

through sand to enter drain.

Soil Base

Once the sand is saturated with water any sand on steep sloped faces begins to move.

Water hits the clay and has nowhere to go so it forces the sand to slide down the bank of the bunker


Contamination problems

Contamination Problems

The sand has slid down the face with soil from the bunker slopes.

The sand is now contaminated with clay and will begin to perform poorly.

A layer of silt covers the top of the bunker and prevents water movement vertically.

The drainage slows and the sand goes from white to the color of the soil.

Sand must be shovel back up for play to resume.

Gravel Layer with Polymer

Using a 2” layer of gravel, glued to stay in place, the water now enters the rock layer and moves horizontally quickly to the drain lines preventing a slide, contamination and the movement of the sand
