Billy Fuller had an idea. Poor-draining bunkers were a problem for golfers, superintendents and the soil; they limited play after storms and could suffer heavy erosion. That is, until the “Enhanced Bunker Drainage Method” was first implemented by Fuller (dubbed “Billy Bunker”) at Augusta National Golf Club.
Invented in 1981, the system employs a drainage pipe, a layer of pea gravel, cloth liner and quality sand, allowing water to flow freely through the gravel to the drain lines and virtually eliminating erosion. The company says it bunks, “will substantially reduce washouts [and] eliminate silt contamination."
