On the heels of its recent announcement that the Company's Hit the Green for HOPE campaign generated more than $26,000 for PGA HOPE - golf programming for United States military Veterans with disabilities - Marriott Golf, one of the world's premier golf operators, today announced the re-launch of Fairway Furloughs, an initiative that provides active, reserve and retired military personnel with discounted green fees/carts, ranging from just $29 - $69.
Fairway Furloughs is available after 3 p.m. any day of the week, year round, at participating Marriott Golf courses. Tee times can be made up to three days in advance, and a valid military ID card must be presented. In some cases, select Marriott Golf properties will even extend the hours that the special offer is available, further enhancing the value of the program and enabling eligible military personnel to experience the Company's prestigious collection of championship golf courses.
"Marriott Golf is deeply committed to supporting golf programs for Veterans as well as active and reserve military personnel," said Bill Nault, Vice President, Marriott Golf. "Fairway Furloughs provides an opportunity for dedicated military personnel to play our great collection of championship courses and enjoy the wonderful sport of golf at extremely reasonable rates."

Complementing Marriott Golf's commitment to military programming, and as part of the Company's collaboration with PGA REACH, the charitable foundation of the PGA of America, approximately 2,000 golfers at Marriott Golf properties nationwide recently participated in the Hit the Green for HOPE promotion, generating more than $26,000 for PGA HOPE.
PGA HOPE (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere), the flagship Military program of PGA REACH, introduces golf to Veterans with disabilities in order to enhance their physical, mental, social and emotional well-being. Led by PGA Professionals, PGA HOPE is a proven activity that has helped thousands of Veterans assimilate back into their communities through the social interaction the game of golf provides.
