Building on the Olympic Legacy

December 2nd, 2016

Golf’s ‘great & good’, assembled at the HSBS Golf Business Forum, had a lot of positive things to say about the global impact of golf’s return to the Olympic family in Rio, with leaders believing even more can be made of the Olympic opportunity in 2020.

Many people would like to see a team event at Tokyo and following the outstanding success of the recent World Cup of Golf, with Denmark winning and the U.S. tying for second with China, the momentum behind this idea can only increase. Mixed foursomes, anybody?
