Marriott Golf Announces 2011 International Family Golf Festival

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.”  Today, Marriott Golf announced its fourth annual International Family Golf Festival program, a year-long series of one-day family golf events taking place at 32 leading Marriott Golf managed destinations throughout the world. 

Commencing on April 9 at Sprowston Manor, A Marriott Hotel and Country Club, in Norwich, England, the Marriott International Family Golf Festival, which encourages parents and children to learn and play the game together, invites families 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. 

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.  The 2011 Family Golf Festival will take place at designated Marriott Golf properties, from April through December, on the following dates:

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 clubs when they participate in the “Kids Golf-4-Free” program.
