Marriott resorts and golf courses will offer complimentary lessons, games, and more
ORLANDO, Fla., – Golfers of all ages and abilities are invited to join their family members to experience a day on the golf course at one of twenty-two scheduled Marriott International Family Golf Festivals in 2023. The first event will kick off on March 4, 2023, at La Iguana Golf Course at the beautiful Los Suenos Marriott Ocean & Golf Resort in Costa Rica and will continue across the U.S. through December 6, 2023.
The Marriott International Family Golf Festival is an important annual component of Marriott’s commitment to player development programs. Families are invited to Marriott Golf properties for a day of fun-filled activities, including complimentary golf instruction, clinics, interactive golf games, contests, family golf programs, prizes, giveaways and more. Under the guidance of PGA/LPGA Professionals, each resort location offers a welcoming environment where families can learn and play the game together.
“Our properties are dedicated to creating family-oriented golf activities and providing a welcoming environment for the whole family to enjoy a day at the golf course,” said Brett Stark, Senior Director, Marketing & eCommerce, Marriott Golf. “Family Golf events are critical to growing the game of golf, and our resorts and golf courses are excited to teach new golfers to this great game. We encourage all to come out and have a fun time.”
Outside of the Family Golf Festivals, Marriott Golf resorts and courses offer special rates throughout the year. Adults can take advantage of special rates and children can play golf for free as part of Marriott Golf’s Kids Golf-4-Free program. Launched over 15 years ago, Kids-Golf-4-Free enables kids up to 15 years old to golf at no cost when accompanied by a full-paying adult after 3 p.m. In addition, Marriott Golf offers complimentary lessons anytime to kids up to 15 years old when accompanied by an adult who is taking a fully paid lesson from a Marriott Golf instructor.
