Around 20 staff travelled out from Ipswich for the tournament.

Andre Andrade, International Golf Sales Director, said: “The 2018 Ryder Cup was a huge success. The world witnessed one of the best-presented golf courses in the world this weekend, and for the staff at our factory in Ipswich who have been involved, it’s a huge privilege and a very proud moment.

“From supplying 60 extra machines for the golf course, to providing technical support to the greenkeeping team, we have all pulled together to make sure this tournament was a success. It’s safe to say Jacobsen, and Ipswich, have been a part of golfing history this weekend.”
