Tain Golf Club in Scotland was the venue of a bunker camp, as representa- tives of several local clubs came to see the building of a bunker on a new practice facility for the club. Huw Morgan, MG, and Llewelyn Matthews, technical manager and construction manager with Ecobunker , went to Tain at the invitation of course manager Iain MacLeod to install the company's product in a new practice bunker, and MacLeod took the opportunity to invite representatives of other local clubs to view the process. "When Iain asked us to come up and install our product on his new practice facility, we jointly figured it would make sense to ask some of the other clubs in the area to come and see how it works," Morgan says. MacLeod's team will install a second Ecobunker on the practice facility in the near future, and club greens chairman Gus Gurney said it may not stop there. "We were very impressed with the Ecobunker product and process, and would be very interested in exploring its potential for future use to install it in the bunkers out on our links course," he says.
