From new Fam­ily Tees and Fam­ily Golf Carts to ju­nior ap­parel and golf clubs, Tiburón has made the game more ju­nior and fam­ily-friendly.

As part of the re­cent re­mas­ter­ing of Tiburón’s Black Course, Fam­ily Tees were added giv­ing mem­bers and guests with chil­dren an­other op­tion to play the course at ap­prox­i­mately 4,000 yards. With the

ad­di­tion of the Fam­ily Tees, golfers now have six tee op­tions to choose from when play­ing the Black Course – from 4,000 yards from the Fam­ily Tees to 6,949 yards from the Cham­pi­onship Tees.

Tiburón is man­aged by Troon and par­tic­i­pates in the man­age­ment com­pany’s in­dus­try-lead­ing Troon Fam­ily Golf pro­gram. Through Troon Fam­ily Golf, ju­niors (age 15 years and younger) can play for free after 3 pm with a pay­ing adult, re­ceive com­pli­men­tary Call­away Golf rental clubs (avail­able in two sizes at Tiburón) and re­ceive com­pli­men­tary golf in­struc­tion when tak­ing a les­son with a pay­ing adult.

A wide range of ju­nior ap­parel and ac­ces­sories, in­clud­ing ju­nior-sized golf gloves, are also avail­able through The Golf Shop at The Ritz-Carl­ton Golf Re­sort, Naples.

“It’s im­por­tant that we in­tro­duce this great game of golf to new play­ers, while mak­ing it more fun for ex­ist­ing play­ers,” said Kevin DeDonato, PGA, gen­eral man­ager, Tiburón Golf Club at The Ritz-Carl­ton Golf Re­sort, Naples. “We hope our new fam­i­ly­cen­tric of­fer­ings en­cour­age fam­i­lies to play to­gether and more of­ten.
