Olympic Golf: Rio Delay Continues

The dispute over the legal ownership of the site of the course planned to host Golf’s return to the Olympic Games in 2016 continues unresolved. Construction work, due to commence last year, has still not started.

Speaking on the Golf Channel, course designer Gil Hanse has stated that his team is “right up against the deadline now” to get the layout ready for test tournaments scheduled for 2015, while Executive Director Antony Scanlon has told the media that the International Golf Federation is “very concerned” over the construction delays.

Does anyone have a ‘Plan B’?
