Stunning setting a fitting home for golf’s Olympic return

After more than a century’s absence golf will return to Olympic competition at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. Set on the iconic Rio coastline, the world’s best golfers will finally get another chance to win world sport’s most prestigious prize – an Olympic gold medal. Australia’s golfing stars will be the first representatives to wear the green and gold in Olympic competition and will be confident of making the Rio 2016 tournament one to remember.

Men to watch: Scott Hend (42) or Marcus Fraser (37) will be the first Australian to tee off when the men's tournament starts on Day 6 of the Games (August 11). 60 players will look to tame the new course in the 72-hole stroke play format that should suit the Australian style of play. Hend will celebrate his 43rd Birthday during the final round at Rio.

Women to watch: Minjee Lee (20), who won her second LPGA Tour tournament in April in just her second year as a professional, is ranked No. 41 in the world rankings. Su Oh (20) has made a big impact on the LPGA Tour with a second and eigth-place finish in the past couple of months.

Lee and Oh were part of the Australian team that won the World Amateur Championships in 2014. The 60 women will tee off on Day 12 of the Games (August 17) to start their 72-hole competition.

Competition Format & Events

Olympic competition will feature a 72-hole stroke play golf tournament. Each player will shoot four rounds of 18 holes with the lowest score winning the gold medal. If any of the top three players are tied, a three-hole playoff will determine the medal winners.  

Australia and Olympic Golf

With Golf having only been on the Olympic program twice, Australia are yet to have a representative in the sport at the Games. Golf made its debut at the 1900 Paris Olympic Games before again being a part of the 1904 St Louis Olympic Games. The United States were the only nation to have representatives at both Games while athletes from France (1900), Great Britain (1900), Greece (1900) and Canada (1904) appeared on one occasion.   

Did you know

  • Henri Chandler Egan is the only golfer to have won two golf Olympic medals. The USA golfer finished with the silver in the individual event while also being a part of the gold medal winning team at the 1904 St Louis Olympic Games.
