Orlando World Centre Marriott adds MiniLinks Course
The Orlando World Centre Marriott (the largest Marriott in the world), has installed a portable 18-hole miniature golf course from Adventure Golf & Sports (AGS).
Kamiya Woodard, director of recreation at the hotel, said: “We are continually looking for experiential offerings for families and the mini golf course provided the perfect option for an outdoor family friendly activity. We looked at an array of activities but felt miniature golf would truly capture all ages of our leisure guests. And we had the perfect outdoor location for it…We definitely wanted something portable to move in and out because of so many events and activities taking place outside.”
AGS proposed the hotel install a MiniLinks course, which is designed for portable indoor and outdoor use and comes in a full size and junior version. Both versions are installed using patented, interlocking modular panels that are permeable for efficient water drainage.
Although the 18-hole full-size MiniLinks course requires only a minimum of 3,000 square feet, the Orlando Marriott had abundant space and was able to spread the course over 7,800 square feet directly below the hotel’s main lobby on their activity/event lawn.
The MiniLinks course now joins other attractions the Orlando Marriott uses to entice and retain guests. Woodard commented: “Our water slide tower and splash zone were added to the Resort in 2013 and have proven to be great enhancements to our offerings. We want to expand that even further, which is why we are building an additional water slide tower and a lazy river which is scheduled to open in spring 2022.”
