The Guyana Marriott announced its partnership with the Lusignan Golf Club (LGC) as they displayed the first-ever golf carts available for use at the Club.
This was done through a partnership agreement with LGC President Aleem Hussain; Marriott’s General Manager, Eduardo Reple and Director of Sales, Sandra Bernal. The carts will carry the Marriott Bon Voy branding.
“Marriott has over 120 million reward guests in their Bon Voy programme and this partnership with Aleem and the LGC allows our guests to take advantage of quality both on and off property,” said Reple. “Marriott has always been associated with the development of sports in every country we are located and offer the best experience for our guests.”
According to Bernal, “Additionally, the Guyana Marriott will host its first-ever Customer Appreciation awards at the LGC on November 3 with a fun day and golf tournament, which will allow all their guests, clients, and staff to play along with the local golfers. The tournament was the brainchild of our General Manager, who is himself an avid golfer and has seen the value of associating the Marriott brand with golf in Guyana.”
Present at the handing-over ceremony at the Marriott were Assistant Captain, Dr Joaan Deo and Club Public Relations Officer (PRO)/Assistant Secretary Bishop Guy Griffith, along with several members of the Marriott management team and hotel guests. Interest was extremely high as many of the guests present were both happy and astonished to hear that Guyana has a golf course and several immediately booked appointments to visit the club.
The sport has gained considerable attention in the past few years and continues to dominate the sports landscape as more and more ex-pats and tourists enter Guyana.
“We have projected that more than 400 golfers will be in Guyana over the next few years and are determined to be prepared for this eventuality,” said LGC President Hussain.
“With American Airlines, Qatar Airlines, Jet Blue, Copa, Caribbean, Liat, and several others scheduled to fly into the country in the coming year, it is anticipated that Guyana will be host to more than 500,000 visitors annually, and golf is a key sport for those who are coming and we will be ready.”
The Marriott Bon Voy branded carts will be available for rental on a daily basis at the golf course, which is in magnificent condition in preparation for the Guyana Open scheduled for October 26-27.
In the near future, guests at the Marriott will be able to practise their putting as the agreement between the two entities extends to having a permanent presence at the hotel for guests to enjoy on a daily basis.
