Bunker Renovation Project at Hill Country Club

November 30, 2018



San Antonio, TX: The Hill Country Golf Club has undergone a complete bunker renovation that was completed mid-February. Fleetwood Services of Dallas, Texas executed the bunker renovation using the patented, three-step Better Billy Bunker Construction Method. The Better Billy Bunker Method was developed in 1981 by former Augusta National Golf Club superintendent, Billy Fuller, to eliminate geo-textiles (fabric liners) from bunker construction and uses a patented method which makes it the most durable and fastest draining bunker method on the market.The first step in the bunker re-construction process is to remove the previous bunker sand and drainage materials to prepare a clean surface for local rock installation. Next, new Advanced Drainage Systems piping is installed, allowing for more effective and efficient water drainage. Lastly, the floor of the newly constructed bunkers are lined with a two-inch layer of drainage gravel. The gravel is sprayed with a liquid, patented liner and covered with four inches of compacted USGA specification bunker sand. The new bunkers and high quality sand allow for improved playability and consistency throughout our 27-hole San Antonio golf course.
