La Quinta Resort & Club And PGA West Introduce Two New Programs For Junior Golfers

Kids Play Free Available Through September 30; Little Links Course Open
to Junior Golfers Playing with a Parent

La Quinta Resort & Club and PGA WEST have announced two new programs for golfers 12 years of age and under, with both designed to make the sport more accessible to families with children.

Offered through September 30, 2013, the property's new Kids Play Free program provides complimentary golf to guests 12 and under who are staying overnight on any La Quinta Resort golf package. The free play amenity is valid after 11:30 a.m. on the La Quinta Resort & Club Dunes or Mountain Courses, and on the Greg Norman Course, Jack Nicklaus Tournament Course and TPC® Stadium Course at PGA WEST, based on availability. Resort packages qualifying for the Kids Play Free program include Stay & Play, Play It Your Way and Desert Links, all of which may be reserved at . For Kids Play Free tee times, please call (760) 564-5729.

The resort's second new junior golf offering is Little Links, a custom-designed nine-hole course-within-a-course created specifically for younger golfers. Significantly shorter than a standard course, Little Links is now open from 3 p.m. daily at the La Quinta Resort Mountain Course, and provides complimentary play to children accompanied by a paying adult. As a further benefit, junior club usage may also be included at no cost, based on availability. There is a $25 cart charge for groups playing on the Little Links program. For more information about this easy and accessible way to introduce golf to children, call (760) 564-7610.
