2016 Ryder Cup Host Chooses BBB

Chaska, MN - Hazeltine National Golf Club, site of the 2016 Ryder Cup, has chosen Better Billy Bunker for their bunker renovation. After testing different construction methods, Hazeltine followed in the footsteps of 2014 Ryder Cup host Gleneagles GC and determined BBB was the best choice. After a trial bunker was installed in 2013, superintendent Chris Tritabaugh reported it performed "as advertised". By surviving as much as 5" rain events with minimal washouts, the staff and members got a glimpse of what they can expect when their entire course features Better Billy Bunkers. BBB licensed installer Duininck Golf was the contractor on the project and recently completed the project, meeting their goal months in advance. This renovation will eliminate a majority of the hassle typically associated with bunker preparation prior to and during a major event. As witnessed at the 2014 PGA Championship at Valhalla, well-performing bunkers during intense rain events are essential! Chris does an excellent job of keeping his members informed and this is his article explaining the how's and why's of the BBB renovation: Blog: Hazeltine National Golf Club
