Marriott Golf announced it has added two new resort golf facilities in the South Pacific region to its collection of worldwide managed properties. 

The Denarau Fiji Golf and Racquet Club, near Nadi, Fiji, and the Sheraton New Caledonia Deva Resort & Spa, in Bourail, New Caledonia, have joined Marriott Golf’s managed property portfolio. This expansion comes on the heels of Marriott International, Inc.’s acquisition and integration of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc., and creating the world’s largest hospitality company. 

The Denarau Golf & Racquet Club features an 18-hole championship course, which offers spectacular views of the South Pacific Ocean. With water hazards in play on 15 of its 18 holes, the 7,150-yard course offers a fun and challenging layout for golfers of all ages and skill levels.   

In one of the world’s most stunning natural settings, The Sheraton New Caledonia Deva Resort & Spa is home to the first Dye Design golf course in the Oceania region, a 7,302-yard championship layout. The course borders crystal clear lagoon water and a serene forest.

“Fiji and New Caledonia are truly unique island environments, worthy of a special trip to experience an amazing region of the planet,” said Jim Keane, senior director, golf operations & developing, Marriott International. “With high quality golf, resort amenities, and the incredible hospitality in these locations, it’s a real change of pace for today’s traveler.”

To fall in line with Marriott’s commitment to environmental stewardship, the company plans to pursue certification through the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program, and any future eco-friendly programs adopted by Marriott Golf.
