Desert Golf Getaway Package Combines Expert Golf Instruction, Championship Golf & Luxury Overnight Villa Accommodations
(PALM DESERT, Calif.) - For Southern California golfers, the "road most traveled" is the freeway to the fairway, thanks to the Faldo Golf Institute's exciting new luxury golf getaway. Today, Shadow Ridge Golf Club, home to the Faldo Golf Institute by Marriott - created by six-time major champion Sir Nick Faldo - debuted the "Freeway-To-The-Fairway" Golf Getaway package, a dream "drive-time" golf excursion to Palm Desert.
The package includes a 3-hour short game or full swing session with a certified instructor from Faldo Golf Institute, a round of golf on the Faldo designed Championship golf course, and luxury villa accommodations. Located at Marriott's famed Shadow Ridge Resort, in Palm Desert, Calif., golfers can enjoy a weekend excursion at one of the premier resort destinations in the region, overlooking the majestic desert mountains of the Coachella Valley. The "Freeway-To-The-Fairway" golf getaway is available through June 17 for $354 per person (double occupancy), offering more than 40 percent off retail value.
The curriculum at Faldo Golf Institute is based on the teaching philosophy of six-time major champion Sir Nick Faldo. The Faldo Certified Instructors undergo an extensive certification process; and as part of their ongoing training, they spend time with Faldo as he reinforces his core values as a champion player and demonstrates how to effectively apply his winning techniques to help each individual reach their full potential.
Additionally, golf aficionados will experience a round of golf at Shadow Ridge Golf Club, the first Faldo designed Championship golf course in the U.S. Set against the beautiful backdrop of the snow-capped Santa Rosa Mountains in Palm Desert, Shadow Ridge Golf Club was recently recognized as one of the top 20 courses in California, according to Golfweek's Best Courses You Can Play State-by-State for 2011. In 2010, Shadow Ridge was named Desert Golf Magazine's Best Resort Course in the Coachella Valley. This beautiful and peaceful valley is often referred to as the "golf capital of the world" because of its ideal playing conditions and abundance of courses.
