The Golf events of the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics will be held at the new Olympic golf course built within the Reserva de Marapendi in the Barra da Tijuca zone from 11 to 20 August 2016.
In the game of golf, players use a selection of clubs to get their ball from the teeing ground into a hole in the fewest number of shots possible – the player who completes the 18-hole course with the lowest shot total wins the round.
The Golf Event made its Olympic debut at the 1900 Summer Olympics in Paris.
