The Lusignan Golf Club (LGC) received a major boost from the Guyana Marriott Hotel as the entity presented two Golf Carts to the club yesterday. Additionally the hotel has sponsored a tournament which is set for November 3.
This deal was made possible through a partnership agreement with the President of the LGC Aleem Hussain, Marriott’s General Manager Eduardo Reple and Director of Sales, Sandra Bernal.
Speaking at the ceremony which was held at the Marriott, Reple said that they have always been supportive of sports, adding that he is happy with the partnership.
“Marriott has 7000 hotels worldwide and this is a way to build loyalty and give back to our customers. Guyana Marriott will host a golf tournament on November 3 and this partnership with Aleem Hussain and LGC will continue throughout the year. We want to promote a golf package for our customers by offering them alternatives to do during the weekends,” he added.
“We will be promoting the tournament in the hotel and anyone is free to try their hand and see what Guyana has to offer in the sport. 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 Mr. Reple.
Marriott has always been associated with the development of sports in every country we are located and we offer the best experience for our guests.”
Sandra Bernal, Director of Sales said in addition to the tournament on November 3 at the LGC, the Guyana Marriott will host its first ever Customer Appreciation awards which will allow their guests, clients and staff to play alongside local golfers.
“The tournament is 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.”
Also present at the ceremony were Assistant Captain Dr. Joaan Deo and Club PRO/Assistant Secretary Bishop Guy Griffith. 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 grow locally as more tourists enter the Guyanese market. “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 Aleem Hussain.
“With American Airlines, Quatar 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 as it prepares for the Guyana Open scheduled for October 26-27.
In the near future, guests at the Marriott will be able to practice 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.
Hussain expressed gratitude to the management and staff of Marriott and said he is happy with the partnership. “Golf has extended many opportunities to people here in Guyana and Marriott brings a new brand to the LGC. The tournament will be exciting and it is expected to attract some of the top golfers here.
