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.
