Marriott Golf announced more global expansion, highlighted by its first golf resort property in Uruguay and two additional properties in Europe. The new additions, which include the Sheraton Colonia Golf Resort & Spa, in Uruguay; Pine Cliffs, a Luxury Collection Resort in the Algarve Region, Portugal; and the Westin La Quinta in Marbella, Spain, join Marriott Golf’s premier collection of managed properties.

This expansion news comes on the heels of Marriott Golf adding two new resort golf facilities in the South Pacific region to its portfolio, following Marriott International’s acquisition and integration of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, creating the world’s largest hospitality company. 

The Sheraton Colonia Golf Resort & Spa located in Colonia Del Sacramento, Uruguay, features a wide range of amenities. The golf course is situated among Uruguayan Eucalyptus trees, lakes and an incredibly beautiful countryside with views of Colonia's spectacular sunsets along the Rio De La Plata River. 

Pine Cliffs, a Luxury Collection Resort in Albufeira, Portugal, is a multi-faceted property, including The Pine Cliffs Residence, Pine Cliffs Ocean Suites, the Annabel Croft Tennis Academy, and Pine Cliffs Golf Club and Academy. The Cliffs Golf Course is situated on top of a stunning sandstone cliff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The walking-only nine-hole course is challenging and fun, but  memorable because of the pristine environment and amazing views on every hole.

The Westin La Quinta Golf Resort & Spa is located in the popular Mediterranean seaside city of Marbella, Spain, and features 27-holes of championship golf divided into distinct nine-hole courses, San Pedro, Ronda and, Guadaiza. The course was designed by Spanish golf architect and former Ryder Cup member Manuel Piñero.  

“These newest additions to the Marriott International golf portfolio offer our Rewards members and all guests even more opportunities to combine world class travel experiences with great golf,” said Jim Keane, senior director, golf operations and development planning, Marriott International. 

In keeping with Marriott’s commitment to environmental stewardship, the company will integrate the new properties by pursuing certification through the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program and any future eco-friendly programs adopted by Marriott Golf.
