Bunkers define the overall personality of a golf course. Great bunkers will enhance the aesthetics of a hole and add to player’s enjoyment, but poor conditions can have a noticeable impact on the experience. Over time, it is easy for sand to get contaminated, bunker edges to move or collapse, and erosion to change the playing surface.
At TDI Golf, we deliver custom Bunker Restorations to address the specific needs of your course. Our team can provide a variety of solutions that include:
- Updating bunkers with tournament-grade sand for best performance
- Restoring damaged bunker edges and overhangs
- Installing bunker liners, based on your preferences (concrete, polymeric sand, etc.)
- Preventing future erosion with a subsurface drainage system
Note: TDI Golf is a licensed and certified installer of all bunker liners on the market today, including L-R Better, Billy Bunker, Capillary Concrete and Erosion Fabric.
If your members are complaining about dead spots or too many grass varieties on the course, then a simple regrassing of the fairways may be the solution. This process involves no changes to contours or leveling out — our team will simply remove the old turf and replace it.
TDI Golf will typically take up to 1 month to complete a Fairway Regrassing project.
Greens turf often requires attention from club staff, depending on weather conditions and level of usage. Although a green cannot always be repaired with simple maintenance, a full restoration is not necessary in every situation.
A simple regrassing and regrading of your greens can soften the surface, allowing for a pace of play that matches the expectations of golfers. During this process, our team will replace your existing turf with new sod and regrade the area to restore its original conditions.
TDI Golf will typically take up to 1 month to complete a Greens Regrassing & Regrading project.
On any golf course, the condition of greens will be key factor in overall quality. Greens change over time, tending to become smaller, rounder in shape, and faster for play — which can impact a golfer’s experience.
With any restoration, the goal is to return a green to its historic state, while ensuring it plays to the standards of today’s game. Each green restoration has its own unique set of challenges. We tailor our approach to address any specific issues that we observe:
- Providing fine grading to create a smooth putting surface
- Expanding or adapting the green shape to match its original design
- Installing subsurface drainage systems to improve turf quality
- Preserving current sod during the restoration process
TDI Golf will typically take up to 4 months to complete a Greens Restoration project.
The conditions of your tees will degrade over time — just like any other feature of the course. Depending on the needs of your club, our team can provide drainage, regrassing or leveling as part of our Tee Restoration services.
Many modern, family-oriented clubs are also adding tees for juniors and ladies. We can assist with the construction of these features as well, if necessary.
The standards for park, playgrounds and other recreational facilities are clearly-defined by government legislation in both Canada and the United States. At Eco Blue Systems, we partner with experienced municipal consultants to develop designs that meet federal requirements for accessibility, safe play spaces, and more.
Whether you are looking to build a new park & playground or update your current one to meet new requirements, the team at Eco Blue Systems can help provide construction services. We also offer inspection on playgrounds in Canada, to ensure they meet safety standards.
The team at Eco Blue Systems specializes in the redevelopment of former commercial or industrial sites, such as old buildings, landfills, or even gravel pits. Our team’s agricultural background means we know what it takes to provide the environmental remediation to return these sites to their original state.
If you have a specific end result in mind for your site, we can tailor our approach to match this. Any end result is possible with our process: a private residence, an athletic facility, pastoral fields or farmland. We can naturalize brownfields developments with grass, trees or other features based on your goals.
At Eco Blue Systems, we have extensive experience constructing sports fields for schools, municipalities, academic institutions, and private clubs. We can provide natural or artificial turf, bundled with drainage services. Our team are experts in turf management and understand how to construct these athletic facilities at the highest professional level.
In addition to sports fields, we can build running tracks to meet the international standards laid out by the International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF). If your organization aims to host track & field competitions, this may be a necessary component of a sports field design.
Our stormwater management systems have been designed to meet the evolving standards for water protection in Canada and the United States (such as the Source Water Protection Act in Ontario). Certain areas of interest are under increased scrutiny when it comes to processing rainwater properly and ensuring it recharges the groundwater tables.
At Eco Blue Systems, we know how to construct infrastructure to channel stormwater correctly. Our team has experience building and reconstructing holding ponds, retaining walls, access bridges and stair systems to allow for the natural flow of rainwater in municipal subdivisions. We are committed to staying current with the environmental best practices for stormwater management.
Stream restorations and shoreline restorations are becoming priorities for communities with older developments, which fail to meet current environmental standards. Our process takes an existing and problematic shoreline or stream and return it to a naturally stable condition.
The team at Eco Blue Systems collaborates with environmentalists and other scientific experts (including arborists, marine biologists, and others) on these major projects. We research and develop a plan in advance to understand the demands of the surrounding community, ensuring the restored body of water will be able to handle the correct volume of runoff.
The restoration work may include tree planting, soil stabilization, or building fish habitats, depending on the location.
Trail networks are becoming the top requirement for community development projects. Providing options for walkers and cyclists to get from their homes to local amenities (such as school or the grocery store) are becoming a priority, especially with the renewed focus on environmentally sustainable transportation.
At Eco Blue Systems, we can restore existing trails to provide accessibility with ramps, parking areas, or other options. We can also build new trail systems to fit the needs of your neighborhood, including the installation of benches, trash receptacles, observation areas, gating systems and much more. Our team partners with municipal consultants to build a trail design that will provide new life for your community.
The XGD System™ ensures that wet approaches are effectively drained and soil compaction is not an issue. Our drainage systems can restore your course to its original conditions, with holes open for play the day following installation.
At XGD Systems, we have adapted our trademarked systems to provide perfect bunker drainage. Bunkers add an element of character to a golf course, but erosion from heavy rainfall can cause bunker maintenance to become a major drain on club resources.
The Bunker Drainage system is designed to reduce the demands of maintenance on bunkers. The system is laid out to capture water immediately when it enters the bunker, with micro-slit piping installed in a trench. The trench is then backfilled with bunker sand, eliminating the possibility of gravel contamination.
The XGD System™ provides wet fairways with a clean and effective drainage system, which can be installed with minimal disruption. The new Fairway Drainage system will be functional immediately and holes can be open for play the day after an installation.
Green Drainage is the original service provided by XGD Systems — and it’s where our many years of experience show. Golf greens are the most played section of any course and it is important to preserve their historic features, while providing impeccable turf conditions. Your Greens Drainage system will deliver a playable green after two to three days of work.
XGD Systems’ Master Drainage Plans are created for specific facilities. When building a plan, our team will visit your site to assess the drainage needs of each individual golf hole or sports field and find the best possible solution for each location.
Following our assessment, we will provide your organization with a full design & budget, itemized on a hole by hole basis for golf courses. The design and budget breakdown is formatted so it can be easily presented to a committee or board.
The XGD System™ has been highly successful when adapted to sports fields. If your facility is suffering from water damage or soil compaction issues, then a drainage system can help ensure playability throughout the year.
