“I had no in-field experience with ZLINE Bunker Systems before my inspection of seven Houston (TX) area golf courses following Hurricane Harvey. I came away impressed by the relatively healthy condition of those sand bunkers employing the ZLINE Bunker System after 40”-50” of rain, flooding and hurricane conditions. Damage to unlined bunkers was devastating, and in many instances, will require completely rebuilding them to be playable again.
The bunkers lined with ZLINE Bunker Systems generally held their shape, edge and drainage integrity. The ZLINE bunkers required minimal work to shift any displaced sand back in place or to remove washed in debris. It is good for golf to have a company offering innovative products at a price point that makes bunker protection affordable.”

“Here at Tour 18 Houston, our new bunkers with ZLINE Bunkers Systems handled Hurricane Harvey’s 42” of rainfall and flooding with no issues. We have gone from spending hours to spending minutes repairing bunkers and has proven itself to be very cost effective reducing labor and material costs.”
