Richard Allen, Co- Founder of EcoBunker Ltd has developed and patented a design that is in increasing demand from golf courses throughout the world, quite simply due to the many benefits seen by golfers, Greenkeepers , Managers and Owners.

The great news is that all golf clubs who have invested in EcoBunker are reporting incredible savings in bunker maintenance costs of over 80%.

Furthermore this groundbreaking design produces a stable safe edge or higher face eliminating bunker face and edge erosion which is also important from a health and safety aspect, protecting Green keepers and golfers in the course of their activities.

Ecobunker is highly sustainable. Comprised of 100% recycled materials, it fully complies with the R&A and the Golfing Union of Wales’ drive to promote sustainability in golf, environmentally and economically.
