Dom Pedro Hotels and Golf Collection has once again made its mark, however this time it is not by hosting the lowest-ever round on the European Tour, but with the installation of an innovative new water management system that is 23 per cent more energy efficient than before.
Working closely with Grundfos, a market leading supplier of water pump solutions, Europe’s leading golf destination is saving water, energy and man hours – all while keeping the five championship courses at Dom Pedro in top shape.
The new, more sustainable system, called WHOLE-IN-ONE by Grundfos, combats this by controlling how the water is collected in the lakes and, with the correct pressure, can irrigate the property using a fraction of the power.
For example, on the Millennium Course the systems will reduce CO2 usage by 30.26 tonnes per year, saving 87,500 kW of energy. Greater still, at the Victoria Course, 61.26 tonnes of CO2 and a staggering 177,000 kW will be saved every 12 months.
Simão da Cunha, Head of Golf Operations, Dom Pedro Golf, said: “Our team has never worked harder to push the boundaries and ensure our courses are run in the most efficient and sustainable way possible. The work we have done with Grundfos has already shown exceptional results and will ensure our courses are not only in perfect condition all year round, but also increasingly energy efficient and more environmentally friendly.”
