Olympic Achievement wishes to congratulate Gil Hanse on his firm’s selection to design the golf course in Rio de Janeiro for the Olympic Games in 2016.

The readmission of golf as an Olympic sport after an absence of 112 years is expected to have a huge impact upon the growth of the game in many parts of the world, especially in countries where governments decide their investment in sport  giving priority mainly to those that are recognised as Olympic disciplines.

The announcement is particularly timely as we are just a few days away from the opening of The China Golf Show in Beijing.
