Osama Hirzalla, Vice President Brand Marketing and eCommerce for Marriott International in Europe, said: “We are thrilled to collaborate with the German Golf Association on this exciting new partnership. It is a great opportunity to expose our brand to a wider audience and share our passion for excellence with our guests and golfers of the DGV. We look forward to working with the DGV to bring new, exciting opportunities and brilliantly hosted experiences to Marriott Hotels & Resorts guests and golfers throughout Germany.”

Hans Joachim Nothelfer, President of the DGV added: “We are very proud and happy that we have found with Marriott Hotels & Resorts a partner who strongly supports German golfing and who will contribute to the attraction of golfing in Germany and beyond boundaries.”

Marriott Hotels & Resorts, the signature brand of Marriott International, currently operates nine hotels in Germany.
