Revolutionary: Penha Longa Resort introduces cutting-edge robots

Penha Longa Resort proudly announces a transformative leap in sustainable golf course management in Portugal with the integration of nine robots to assist in maintaining the 13-hectare fairways. This pioneering initiative, a first in the Iberian Peninsula, marks a monumental advancement in the golf industry.

These state-of-the-art robots not only ensure immaculate fairways but also promote environmental responsibility. Using this innovative technology, Penha Longa has reduced its carbon footprint by an impressive 18,729 kg of CO2. This decrease is equivalent to planting approximately 825 trees, underscoring the commitment to environmental conservation.

Located 45 minutes from Lisbon, Penha Longa is a golf gem and one of the most sought-after destinations among the best Portugal golf breaks.

By autonomously tending to the grass with unparalleled precision, these robots elevate the standard of care beyond traditional methods. Equipped with integrated GPS technology, they guarantee unmatched cutting accuracy, while their lightweight design and daily maintenance program uphold superior fairway quality.

From an agronomic standpoint, this innovative technology not only enhances the excellence of the course but also promises to reduce the need for inputs such as fertilizers, herbicides, and water in the foreseeable future.

Penha Longa remains dedicated to pioneering sustainable practices and setting a standard of excellence in golf course management.
