Marriott Golf, the global golf division of Marriott International, has given the JW Marriott Marco Island Beach Resort the Golf Property of the Year award. Todd Evans, director of grounds operations, was also recognized as Golf Grounds Manager of the Year.

Judging criteria for the award included overall turfgrass condition, successful large-scale renovation or construction projects, member and guest satisfaction scores, employee satisfaction scores, staff development and more.

Evans achieved high marks in associate satisfaction, an accident-free workplace, charitable fundraising and course conditioning measures.

The property was also recognized for its prompt response following Hurricane Irma, quickly completing extensive renovations in order to reopen for guests.

“We are so honored by these prestigious awards from Marriott Golf,” said Chris Major, general manager of golf for the property. “To have our courses and our director of grounds operations selected over so many other distinguished resorts and course professionals is truly an honor and a privilege. We are extremely dedicated to the guest and member experience here, and to see the results of our hard work recognized is very rewarding.”

The award-winning resort offers guests two private golf courses — the recently renovated Rookery and Hammock Bay, a world-class, Audubon gold signature, par-72 course. Both courses have earned Marriott’s Environment Sustainability Performance Award.
