At Kustom Bind we have developed a unique system in bunker construction that is aimed at eliminating sand slumping, erosion of bunker faces, sand contamination and ball plugging which in turn, increases playability and consistency and can vastly reduce maintenance costs. Our approach consists of 4 key components.
Are your bunkers unplayable after rain events, is sand slumping down faces?
Kustom Bind’s Drainage Solution allows the bunker sand to drain freely, preventing the sand from becoming saturated.
“Kustom Bind has proven to be a huge asset to the Pambula-Merimbula GC. After a very easy and efficient installation, the performance of this hard liner has no doubt lifted the standards at the club. We have received several rain events since Kustom Bind has been installed and a few above 150mm, we have not had to touch the bunker to fix any washouts or slumping in any way.
Team moral is at a high due to no pumping out or fixing washed bunkers, as this was a common occurrence even after a heavy irrigation cycle. This allows us to focus towards more important parts of the course resulting in a much better product for our members and visitors.”

“At Portarlington Golf Club we have had issues with two bunkers that were constructed out of clay. Typically any sand placed onto the face would slump or have scoured after heavy rainfall events. Being in a windy site also restricted our ability to wet the sand in order to stabilize it.
We have found that since the introduction of the Kustom Bind product our sand holds beautifully onto the face of the bunker, whilst also providing a free draining profile. It also allows us to water the sand in the event of strong winds preventing sand losses from the bunkers.
Kustom Bind has certainly provided us with the solution we needed to allow rapid drainage without the need for time consuming bunker repairs after rainfall.”
