Golfer Waiting to Tee off

Marriott Golf and the golf management organization of Marriott International  have introduced “Fairways-Fore-FREEdom,” a military program designed to support the men and women in America’s armed forces. Fairways-Fore-FREEdom provides active, reserve and retired military personnel with both FREE and discount golf at more than 25 Marriott Golf courses throughout the United States.

The Fairways-Fore-FREEdom program starts Friday, May 25, in honor of Memorial Day weekend, and runs through Veteran’s Day on Monday, November 12.  As part of the program, members of the armed forces who present a valid military ID card can take advantage of discounted “twilight” green fees/carts, ranging from $29 to  $69, while receiving a FREE replay certificate for another day.  The free replay certificates will be valid until December 31, 2012.

The program is available after 3 p.m. any day of the week at participating Marriott Golf courses, and all tee times can be scheduled up to three days in advance.  In some cases, select Marriott Golf properties will extend the hours that the special offer is available.

Participating courses include: Camelback Golf Club, Scottsdale, Ariz.; Desert Springs Golf Resort, Palm Desert, Calif.; Grande Pines Golf Club, Orlando, Fla.; Grande Vista Golf Club, Orlando, Fla.; Hawk’s Landing Golf Club, Orlando, Fla.; MetroWest Golf Club, Orlando, Fla.; Falcon’s Fire Golf Club, Kissimmee, Fla.; Renaissance Vinoy Resort, St. Petersburg, Fla.; Shadow Ridge Golf Club, Palm Desert, Calif.; Starr Pass Golf Club, Tucson, Ariz.; The Rookery at Marco, Naples, Fla.; Wildfire Golf Club, Phoenix, Ariz.; Cattails Golf Club, Kingsport, Tenn.; Toftrees Golf Club, State College, Pa.; Griffin Gate Golf Club, Lexington, Ky.; Kauai Lagoons Golf Club, Lihue, Hawaii; Stone Mountain Golf Club, Stone Mountain, Ga.; Crane’s Landing Golf Club, Lincolnshire, Ill.; Westfields Golf Club, Clifton, Va.; and Willow Crest Golf Club, Oak Brook, Ill.

The “Fairways-Fore-FREEdom” military golf program, which cannot be combined with any other offer, is based on availability at participating Marriott Golf-managed courses, and restrictions may apply.  This offer is valid for active, reserve and retired personnel from the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, National Guard and Coast Guard.  For more information, visit the Marriott website.
