Golfing Families Invited for a Fun and Free Day of Golf Activities, Instruction

(ORLANDO, Fla.) - Marriott Golf, one of the world's premier golf operators, is once again reaching out to families all over the world and promoting "togetherness in golf." Wildfire Golf Club in Phoenix, Ariz., today announced that it will host its second annual Family Golf Festival Sept. 13.

The Marriott International Family Golf Festival, which encourages parents and children to learn and play the game together, invites families to Wildfire Golf Club for an afternoon of free golf activities and instruction, including short game and full swing clinics. Further, participants will be able to enter into a raffle for a chance to win a number of great prizes! Additionally, Wildfire will have a beverage cart available, and the Golf Grille will be serving food to purchase all day long. The day's full schedule of events is as follows:
1:30 p.m. - 2 p.m.: Registration
2 p.m. - 3:45 p.m.: Instructional Clinics
4 p.m.: Families are invited to a complimentary round of golf on the Faldo Golf Course (must register in advance)

For more information on this year's Family Golf Festival, please call Todd McNeeley, Sales Coordinator for Wildfire Golf Club, at (480) 905-7981. Advance registration is required.

The Marriott International Family Golf Festival is another effort by Marriott to promote family golf. In 2005, Marriott Golf launched "Kids Golf-4-Free," a first-of-its-kind program that enables kids up to 15 years old to golf for free when accompanied by a full paying adult after 3 p.m. In addition, Marriott Golf also offers free 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. This program, which is available at some of Marriott Golf's most prestigious resort destinations worldwide, was complemented in 2007 by the "Kids Rent-4-Free" program, which provides kids 15 years old and under with a free rental set of Accu-Length clubs when they participate in the "Kids Golf-4-Free" program.
