Never replace fabric liners again!
Klingstone®, the patented liquid-applied bunker barrier, permeates and binds soil particles in the bunker cavity to stop contamination of the sand, eliminate erosion, stabilize bunker faces and enhance the effectiveness of your drainage system.
Klingstone products are polyurethane-based liquids that cure to strong polymers that permanently bind and stabilize soils and aggregates by essentially gluing them together. Once applied, stones and other contaminants cannot migrate up from the bunker cavity to contaminate your critical bunker sand.
Because the cured product is inert and will not deteriorate over time, Klingstone is environmentally safe and never needs replacement.
Work is beginning this spring on the final half of River Marsh’s bunker renovation project which began in fall 2012. When all is said and done, superintendent Mark Ross will have overseen the renovation of over 100,000 sq feet of bunkers on the River Marsh course. Klingstone will be installed in the base of all bunkers at River Marsh.
Ross completed a few sample bunkers a year ago prior to making his final decision on liners. When we contacted him after Hurricane Irene devastated the northeast coast, his response was “Thank you for your concern, looks like Jersey took the brunt unfortunately. We made out ok, more importantly our sample bunkers held up tremendously to 7.5” hard rain, holding no water and no washouts.
Klingstone received the order shortly thereafter for the rest of River Marsh’s bunkers.
