Polylast Bunker Liner
Polylast Bunker Liner, A Superior Solution To A Complex Issue
Polylast Bunker Liner improves the flow of water through your bunkers by becoming an extension of your drainage system. The porous material allows water to percolate down into the soil at any point of contact which helps to prevent washouts. At the same time, the liner keeps your sand clean from migrating rocks and dirt from the native subsurface.
This unique patent pending solution is made in the USA and prefabricated from 100% recycled rubber (US Patent number 8,389,624 B2 issued March 5, 2013) which arrives ready to install. Installation is simple, requiring only the placement of the preformed pads, of which the seams are glued together. This liner doesn’t require any special heavy equipment or any certified installation crews. The material is flexible, allowing it to easily contour to the curves and dips of your bunkers, while being strong enough to withstand migrating animals or the accidental scrapes from machine rakes.
Along the edges, Polylast™ Bunker Liner can be placed under the turf, creating a seamless edge while allowing the roots to thrive in the porous material. Additionally, trimming turf edges has never been easier. Featured in the March 2016 issue of Golfdom Magazine, this revolutionary bunker liner is a simple, superior solution to what has become a complex issue.
Polylast Bunker Liner is prefabricated and delivered ready to lay, it only requires placement of the preformed pads, the seams of which may be stapled and glued together.
You can calculate the cost of your Polylast Bunker Liner installation by using these numbers: 200 square feet installed per man hour, and your hourly labor rate.
$15.00/hr = 7.5 cents/sq ft
$25.00/hr = 12.5 cents/sq ft
$50.00/hr = 25 cents/sq ft
$100.00/hr = 50 cents/sq ft
Water Flows Through

Even if a Polylast Bunker Liner is installed on a nearly vertical bunker wall, the water will flow through at the point of impact instead of pooling in the bottom of the sand trap. You read that right, over 7,000 inches per hour. There is no other product on the market today like the, patent pending, Polylast Bunker Liner.
Polylast Bunker Liner is porous, allowing water to flow through freely, while preserving the sand above. This demonstration shows clear water running through the bunker likner pad and onto the ground below. Although not technical at all, this was the very first test done in our parking lot to “see if this thing would work”. Turns out it worked very well as many ASTM tests later, and superintendents and contractors from around the world, would confirm.
