The machines were suppled from Ipswich-based turf care and utility vehicle company Ramsomes Jacobsen, a member of the EADT/EDP Top100 listing of the 100 largest companies in Suffolk and Norfolk, via local dealer Tijardim Equipamentos de Jardim.

The two courses offer a combition of links and parkland golf, with the “Royal” situated dramatically along a cliff’s edge while the “Ocean” sweeps down to the beach.

Luis Matos, resort and technical director, said: “The importance of the natural environment in Vale do Lobo has been a priority at the resort from the outset, with continuous innovation, infrastructure and services remaining essential in preserving the unique natural environment of the area.”

He added: “We are always looking to find new and innovative solutions to course maintenance and in keeping with this philosophy, we have recently acquired new equipment from the renowned Ransomes Jacobsen brand, to allow the latest technology to be used to create harmony between the courses and the environment.”
