Marriott Golf Celebrates 7th Annual International Family Golf Festival

Golfing Families & Newcomers are Invited for a FUN Day of FREE Golf Activities at Premier Marriott Resorts and Golf Courses Throughout the World

(ORLANDO, Fla.) - Family, Fun and Free Golf … Golfers of all ages and abilities are invited to join their family members and experience the true meaning of “family togetherness on the links,” as Marriott Golf today announced the schedule for the 7th Annual Marriott International Family Golf Festival. These one-day family golf-themed events, which will take place at 28 leading Marriott Golf-managed destinations throughout the world, will tee off domestically at Falcon’s Fire Golf Club in Kississmee, Fla., March 15, and internationally at Son Antem Golf Club in Spain March 30.

The Marriott International Family Golf Festival, open to golfers of all ages and skill levels, supports the PGA of America’s dynamic player development programming, while offering a welcoming environment where women, children, siblings, parents, grandparents and friends can learn and play the game together. Families are invited to Marriott Golf properties for a fun-filled afternoon of FREE golf instruction, clinics, exciting activities, interactive golf games, family golf programs, chances to win a variety of prizes, and so much more! Each year, thousands of families take part in this exciting year-long program.

“Growing the game is vital for the entire golf industry and we believe our Marriott Golf family-based programming is ideal for bringing newcomers into the sport, while promoting togetherness on the course, which is essential in today’s fast-paced family environment,” said Jim Keane, Senior Director of Operations, Marriott Golf.

In addition, after 3 p.m., families and children can play golf for free as part of Marriott Golf’s “Kids Golf-4-Free” program in which an estimated 10,000 parents and children participate each year. Launched in 2006, “Kids Golf-4-Free” is 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 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.

The 2014 Family Golf Festival will take place at designated Marriott Golf properties throughout the year. For more information, visit
