Pennsylvania's Toftrees Golf Club celebrates Marriott's Family Golf Festival

As a fun alternative to playing 18 holes, golfers of all ages and abilities are invited to join their family members and experience the true meaning of "family togetherness on the links." Toftrees Golf Club, located at One Country Club Lane in State College, Pa., today announced that they will be hosting a Family Golf Festival on Sunday, June 23, 2013, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

The Marriott International Family Golf Festival, which encourages parents and children to learn and play the game together, invites families to Toftrees Golf Club for a fun-filled afternoon of FREE golf instruction, club fittings, and complimentary family golf after 4 p.m. Additionally, participants will have the chance to win a variety of exciting prizes, including a 2013 Golf Membership, and will also be able to cool off at the Toftrees pool. Further, the golf shop will be having a blow-out sale, allowing participants to get great deals on equipment from the top brands in golf.

The Marriott International Family Golf Festival is another effort by Marriott to promote family golf. In 2006, 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 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.
