Since it was launched three years ago Blinder Bunker, which prevents bunker contamination and sand loss, while being completely free draining, has been installed in many golf clubs with startling results.
“It has always been our intention to spread the word about Blinder Bunkers and we are delighted that our partners, Profusion Environmental, undertook the German trip to showcase our bunker liners to a new audience,” explained Blinder Bunker Liner Director, Penny Long.
“We are sure that when the benefits of a Blinder Bunker are seen first hand the golf clubs will be extremely impressed,” she added.
Similar tours are being planned for the future with Italy being targeted within the next few weeks.
