Another project we have recently worked on was at Temecula Creek Inn in Temecula, CA. This was a bunker renovation which we are very familiar with completing. Not all bunkers on the course were renovated but the ones that were turned out really well and all had excellent drainage in the end.

‚ÄčA bunker renovation at The Santaluz Club covering all 18 holes is displayed in these photos. Old sand was removed and replaced with new wedge white sand. We returned to The Santaluz Club in May to fix some of the cart paths and to fix the fairway drainage on hole 4. We used a new machine called The Turf Stripper and it made the job much easier. New drain pipe was laid throughout the entire area and then covered with USGA sand and sod.

An old, dilapidated bridge was renovated for safety reasons and so that the stone would match the stonework on the country club. Here are pictures before, during, and the finished product with the stone on the face of the bridge. The bridge was also previously flat and aesthetically changed to compliment the golf course.

‚ÄčAnother bunker renovation we worked on was at El Caballero Country Club. Before the new sand is placed in the bunkers, we are laying a liner called Sand Trapper that helps prevent contamination from the native soil in the bunkers. The bunkers with darker sand are before pictures and the crisp white sand is the new sand that replaced the old sand.

Current and Previous Projects

Our most recent bunker renovation was at Palm Valley Country Club. Some bunkers needed to be put back to their original shape; whether that be adding to the perimeter or taking away some of the perimeter. New sand was added to each bunker once the old was removed and fresh sod was laid around the edges of the bunkers that were reshaped.

This course needed a bunker restoration project on a Ted Robinson Sr. design. The bunkers were restored to meet the architects original design. Over time bunkers change shape due to grass cutting and natural elements.

We recently had to complete a wash clean up due to heavy rainfall we have experienced in Southern California. It created an extensive mess and we restored the course back to its original state.
