Bunker Drainage with Trevor Dargan

Sign in to follow this

The month of June was one of the wettest on record here. Almost every course has problems with bunker washouts in heavy rain, but proper sub-surface drainage can help prevent severe washouts, saving man-hours and sand.

When I visited Woodenbridge Golf Club, in Wicklow, course superintendent Trevor Dargan was kind enough to share how he has installs bunker drainage. Woodenbridge Golf Club is situated just south of the town of Arklow in County Wicklow, where the Avoca and Aughrim rivers meet. It is on a flood plain that usually floods once every ten years or so. Knowing this fact, Trevor directs several aspects of his product purchases and construction/maintenance practices accordingly.
