Building your own speed ball air bunkers

I have a private course that me and my buddies made out of random stuff.

I was wondering if anyone could give me so good ideas on how to make some air bunkers? Just something more tournament style bunkers. I was thinking about getting some old blow up pools, cutting it in the shape of a can style bunker (seems to be an easy one to start with). What do you guys think? any ideas will help thanks

It'd be easier to just use solid object set up in a tournament style layout. Airball bunkers are already difficult enough without having to make them yourself.

One thing that comes to mind is making frames in the shapes of bunkers using PVC pipe, then wrapping them in tarp for substance. Although I'm not too sure on how strong tarp would be or how many shots it would stand up to.

PVC frames, sand bag weights and tarps over top staked to the ground. Seems simple enough to set up and take down, no harder than an airball field atleast. Plus in the end you can hang up all the tarps and take a hose to them. Clean bunkers for next time. PVC would keep it nice and light, sand bags so you dont demolish a bunker sliding into it.

You could use visqueen or the heavy plastic sheeting you use in construction. Would prolly be better and stronger then tarps. And use vinyl tape if they rip
