Golf, Marriott Timeshare, and the LPGA Tour

The LPGA Tour’s RR Donnelley Founders Cup, played at Wildfire Golf Club at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa in Phoenix, Arizona is only a week away. Scheduled for March 16-21, the pro-am will take place on Thursday, with the first round of play to commence on Friday March 18.

This exciting LPGA golf event not only features the competitive play of the top names in women’s golf, but just as importantly, this event is played without a purse… with all proceeds going to fund the Girls Golf program supported by the LPGA and the USGA. In 2010, LPGA USGA Girls Golf served more than 6,600 girls in the US.

In addition to helping fund the future of the next generation of women to play the game, this special tournament honors the women who paved the way for women’s professional golf. LPGA Founders Louise Suggs, Marilynn Smith, Shirley Spork along with LPGA and World Golf Halls of Fame members, Nancy Lopez, Patty Sheehan, Betsy King, and Pat Bradley will make special appearances at the tournament with Bradley, King, Sheehan, and Lopez playing an 18-hole exhibition match on Friday. This unique tournament will enable fans to see today’s stars while also watching some of the legends of the game.

And the following week, when the hospitality tents are gone and the LPGA Tour is headed to its next tour stop, guests and timeshare owners will be other enjoying the same challenging golf course the pros were playing only days before. Marriott Golf manages 59 golf courses at 43 locations, all of which are at or near a Marriott resort or Marriott timeshare. As Claye Atcheson, Vice President, Marriott Golf explains, “The entire team at Marriott Golf, from the property level to corporate, is very excited to showcase our first-class golf courses and resorts to the world, while challenging the game’s best golfers in three high profile championship events. …we are excited to host the new RR Donnelley Founders Cup event at Wildfire, where we expect players and fans alike to have an amazing experience.”
